Vancouver Island’s largest new and used ski, board and snow sport equipment gear sale is being held Nov. 6 at Queneesh Elementary School.

If you are using outdated snow gear, here is your chance to move up to some new or newer skis, board, boots, bindings, clothing, snowshoes and or related equipment at bargain prices. “Not only is it a win for you, the purchaser, but the 15 per cent sales commission goes a long way in supporting several non-profit community service groups including Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue, Mt. Washington Ski Patrol Association, Adaptive Skiers Association and the Mt Washington Ski Club. This event is a major fundraiser for these organziations,” an event spokesperson said.

Search and Rescue members will volunteer their time on Nov. 6  to assist the public in moving through the large venue at Queneesh Elementary, located at 2345 Mission Rd. in Courtenay, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and answer questions about gear suitability.

This event was started by Forbidden Ski Patrol over 40 years ago. If you have good used gear to sell you may bring it to the school on either  Nov. 5 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. or Nov. 6 from 8 to 10 a.m. only. Doors open at 11 a.m. sharp for the sale.

“Be there early as there is usually a large lineup!” organizers advise. “This year we also have a new large retailer bringing in 600 new and as-new items to blow out at garage sale prices.” There is an entry fee of $2 per person or $5 per family and for gear sales, $1 per item and 15 per cent commission for goods sold.

It is rumoured that we may have another La Nina year which means we could be in luck for another big snow season. Do not miss out on this opportunity to gear up the whole family at significant savings,” the spokesperson added.
