Ski Swap

Every year the Bogus Basin Ski Education Foundation (BBSEF) looks forward to hosting the annual Ski Swap.  BBSEF volunteers enjoy helping outfit winter sports enthusiasts for the season ahead.

In addition to kicking off the ski season, this community event is a major fundraiser for the Bogus Basin Ski Education Foundation. BBSEF’s mission is to provide access to competitive mountain sports programs for the youth of the Treasure Valley.

1,700+ volunteer hours go into this 4-day event. Most Ski Swap volunteers are current and past BBSEF families. Members of the Bogus Basin Ski Patrol and Bogus Basin Ski Club also pitch in to help.  We could not bring the Ski Swap to you without the hundreds of hours our families and friends volunteer each year.

Thank you to all the sellers and shoppers who participated in the 70th Annual Ski Swap!

Sellers check online to see if your items have sold!  Sellers, if you have questions regarding an item please email and include your item tag number.  For those whose items sold at the ski swap, checks will be mailed out December 1, 2021.

How the Ski Swap Works for Sellers

Simply bring your used equipment down to Idaho Expo and check it in. We have all the stuff to tag your items.  You determine the price you want to sell your items for.  We will help you get it tagged and put it on display for sale. If it sells during the Swap, BBSEF will take a 25% commission and mail you a check for the remaining 75% by Dec 1st. It’s that easy, and it sure beats letting old equipment collect dust in the garage. We accept skis, snowboards, nordic, telemark, boots, clothing, snowshoes, etc..  We do not accept Sunglasses, baseball hats, T-shirts, street shoes.
