Are the slopes in your future? If you want to save money on ski gear, consider a ski swap. A swap is a great way to buy and sell used equipment. Most swaps consist of a variety of gear, from brand new to used skis and snowboards to skis; from poles to boots to bindings and clothes. Participating in a swap helps clean out your garage of old gear AND you'll save on next year's equipment.
