Swap Shop Cancelled (for the 3rd year in a row)
CCSAM has again decided to cancel the annual Swap Shop. It had been held in mid November for over 30 years.
In recent years, the vast majority of equipment for sale at the Swap Shop has come from local ski shops who are clearing out previous years’ stock. Again this year, there is little to clear out, so the Swap Shop would have had a shortage of items for purchase.
There are a number of online buy & sell platforms that individuals can use to buy or sell cross country ski items — Facebook Marketplace and Kijiji are the two most obvious. In particular, there is a Manitoba Cross Country ski gear Buy, Sell and trade Facebook group that has almost 2600 members.
Hopefully you’ll find what you need.
