Shopping for affordable ski gear — online

Shopping for affordable ski gear — online.

Skiing is for sure not a cheap hobby. First off, you can’t just ride the lift for free (but wouldn’t that be nice)? Whether you’re a season pass holder at a particular mountain, or you’ve gone for one of the “mega passes” that are now available — namely the Ikon or the Epic — you drop at least several hundred dollars per year to ski.

The other big piece of the equation? Your gear. Top-of-the-line skis, without bindings, can cost well over $600 brand new. Throw in a few hundred dollars for quality bindings, another few hundred for boots, a couple hundred for goggles, a casual hundred for a new helmet — and who knows how much money for your apparel.

The point is: this sport is costly. But that’s where SidelineSwap comes in. If you haven’t heard of SidelineSwap already, go check it out now.

SidelineSwap is an online marketplace where pro athletes, weekend warriors, ski bums, parents — whoever, really — can buy and sell their ski equipment. The platform is super easy to use, and you can access it via desktop or the mobile app (iOS app is alive and well, and the Android app is coming soon — stay tuned!)

All you need to do to list an item for sale on SidelineSwap is create an account, snap a few photos of your gear, describe the item, and boom — you’re ready to sell. On the buying side, you can browse thousands of ski items on SidelineSwap in a matter of seconds. If you’re looking for a specific item, you can filter down by brand, price, and year to really refine your search results.

One of the best parts about SidelineSwap is its community. If you browse other marketplaces for skis and gear, you may find that it’s not as easy to ask detailed questions about the ski equipment you’re interested in. What’s great about SidelineSwap is its messaging feature. It allows you to contact the seller in real time, and ask detailed follow-up questions about the gear you’re interested in. At its core, SidelineSwap is a community of athletes, both on the buying and selling side. Even professional athletes sell on the platform. Shredders like Lynsey Dyer, Nolan Kasper, Owen Leeper, and Sophia Schwartz have all sold items through SidelineSwap (just to name a few!) Any athlete can relate to the frustration of trying to talk to someone about their sport who has no idea what they’re talking about. The level of expertise that SidelineSwap sellers possess makes buying on the platform a great experience all around.

So, what are you waiting for? If you’re looking for some new skis, head to SidelineSwap now to see what you can find for less.
