Annual Ski Swap

Buy or sell new and used equipment at the annual ski swap on Saturday, November 12th. Due to the popularity of this event, we will be giving out numbers upon arrival so that you can browse the store on the morning of the swap before forming the line at 7:50am. We have additional staff and ski experts volunteering at this event to make sure that everybody receives help fitting skis, boards, boots, and other equipment.

Date: Saturday, November 12th, 2016
Time: 8am to 4pm (the line started around 6:30am last year)
Location: 415 County Road 81, Osseo, MN. The swap is in the Pioneer Midwest warehouse, located adjacent to the retail store.

What if I have nothing to "swap"?

It is not required to have something for sale to participate in the swap.  Stop by for deals on new and used equipment. 

Can I sell alpine/downhill ski/snowboard equipment?

Pioneer Midwest no longer stocks downhill ski equipment in the store and will no longer accept alpine ski or snowboard equipment at the swap.

What is my equipment worth?

Pioneer's friendly staff will be available at drop off to assist in pricing of your equipment.

What if I can't be there on time?

Stop by any time during the hours of the swap and it's probable there will still be some equipment for you.

I'm shopping for a new high school racer.  What should I get?

Talk to your coach ahead of time to ensure you're getting the proper equipment.  The most important information is the binding system your team is on.
