Epic Mountain Sports is hosting the first ever gear swap for the Fraser Valley community this Saturday, August 1st. Bring all of your unwanted skis, boards, boots, bikes, tents, raquets or any other outdoor equipment to sell or trade with other locals, and get some great deals on used gear. The swap will be held in the parking lot in front of Epic Mountain Sports in the Park Place Plaza (where Conoco gas station is).
All you have to do is drop your stuff off between 7am and 9am on Saturday morning, fill out a sale form and mark a sale price for your gear. At 9am the trading/selling begins and you’re free to browse the other goods from your neighbors and grab some deals! You can then come back after 5pm to collect your profits.
The Park Place Plaza businesses, including Mirasol Cantina, Rise & Shine Cafe and Divide Snowboard Shop will be offering deals and specials for the event. Plus all of the businesses in the plaza will donate 5% of their sales to the Headwaters Trails Alliance, a non-profit organization that takes care of our hiking trails in Grand County. All equipment that isn’t sold or traded can be donated to the Headwaters Trails Alliance as well. For more information call Epic Mountain Sports at 970-726-2868 or go to their website.
