The Ashland Ski & Gear Swap
The Rogue Valley's unofficial kick off to winter is here
December 2, 2019 - Ashland, Ore. – Recent snow and winter weather have many in our region reminiscing of last winter's epic snow season and daydreaming of future powder days to come. And the timing couldn't be better for Southern Oregon's annual Ski and Gear Swap.
The Ashland Ski & Gear Swap will take place on December 7th and 8th inside Southern Oregon University's Rogue River Room (Stevenson Union Building). Sale hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Sunday. "There's always a buzz in the air when there's snow in the surrounding mountains," says Will Volpert, owner of Indigo Creek Outfitters. "For many in the Rogue Valley, this Ski Swap is the kick-off to winter."
With a large inventory of used and new equipment and clothing, the swap attracts thousands of patrons throughout Southern Oregon and Northern California. "There's something for everyone here," adds Volpert, whose company has managed the swap for the past five years. "Whether you are new to skiing, an advanced ski instructor at Mt. Ashland, or simply looking for a holiday gift - we'll have something for you."
Patrons who wish to participate as a consignor should drop their gear off at the sales floor this Thursday and Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The Ashland Ski & Gear Swap is managed by Indigo Creek Outfitters with help from the Southern Oregon University Outdoor Program.
