The Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club is proud to announce our 52nd Annual Resale Ski and Snowboard Swap, to be held on Saturday, December 5th and Sunday December 6th at Union South. 1308 W. Dayton St. For parking, see information below.  


Resale is the largest ski swap of its kind in the Midwest and Hoofers has been running it for 52 years now! Come enjoy great deals on winter sports gear such as downhill and cross-country skis, snowboards, apparel and more at significantly discounted prices from both local and national vendors, as well as new and slightly used gear from the community. Make the upcoming winter months active and full of fun with new or new-to-you equipment.

Hoofers Resale is the largest sale of its kind in the Midwest, and after 51 years it has only grown! Vendors and members of the community bring in significantly discounted skis, snowboards, apparel and more to create one amazing sale. Proceeds from the sale help fund Hoofers Nordic, Alpine, and Freestyle teams, as well as Hoofers discounted trips. It also pays for annual free ski trips for local non-profit groups such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters.



If you are selling your own new or used equipment you can drop it off at

Agricultural and Industry Room, 3rd Floor, Union South

and let Hoofers sell it for you! Public drop off times are:

  • Thursday, December 3rd, 5pm-9pm 
  • Friday, December 4th, 9am-8pm

All you have to do is drop off your equipment and let our on-site salespeople sell it for you over the weekend. Hoofer’s Ski and Snowboard Club will take 17% of the sale. If you are unsure of how to price your items, volunteers at the public drop off can offer suggestions. You will be able to track the sale of your items online. More information will be provided when you drop off your gear.

A maximum of 10 items are accepted per person. Unfortunately, we cannot accept used helmets, straight alpine skis, non-rigid child snowboards, snowboards with step in bindings, cross-country skis with 3-pin or 75mm bindings as well as cross-country boots that fit the 3-pin binding, as well as alpine boots that are more than eighteen years old and no longer meet current standards for sole shape and slipperiness. All apparel must be new with tags attached or dry cleaned within the last 6 months, presented with dry cleaning receipt.

If your items do not sell you must pick them up during the times listed below. If you do not, they become the property of Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club. Hoofers cannot make exceptions to this rule

  • Sunday, December 6th, 6pm-9pm
  • Monday, December 7th, 11:30am-9pm



Resale is a great place to pick up winter gear for everyone. Prepare yourself by bringing a list with their height, weight, and boot/shoe size (preferably in European sizing as well as standard sizing).
