    Instead of selling 2-3 pairs every fall like I have for the last few years, I'm only selling one pair of skis this time and I already got a buyer lined up for the Nordica Enforcer 100s, so no worries there. And if he falls through, there are two local swaps that will pretty much guarantee that these skis will sell. The wife is happy with her 2-ski quiver from last year, so no changes for her. Everything else that I'll be selling is pretty minor like goggles and poles, nothing that takes up a lot of space or will bother me if it sticks around longer.

    Once again it appears that I am the heretic keeping and loving to death every piece of ski equipment that I have every owned. I'm sure someone will extoll the virtues of buying something you don't plan on keeping. In my world skis are like kids or dogs. You keep and love the ones you have.

    I’m pretty dedicated to the Pico Swap (our club). It serves beyond the ski community with many locals attending for gloves, hats, outerwear & layers.

    I used to buy most skis at swaps- that's until the Start House in Truckee had killer sales !
    Got a nudge from @Tricia to one !

    When are the swaps in the Killington/Pico area? I doubt I'll be in the vicinity, but you can never tell.

    I'm a Vermont girl but I clean up well
    We usually go to the butternut swap in western Mass but since I'm not teaching there this coming season I'm laying low from there. I'd love to check out the Killington/Pico swap. I'm still trying to unload Michael's RTM 81s otherwise those will be going to a swap too.

    Pico is the third weekend in September and Killington is I think the second weekend in October

    I do. But really only because I want a new pair of daily drivers (Praxis PJs w/ heavy core and veneers). None of my old boots are worth selling, but I need to clear out a few bags, and a couple of pairs of skis--probably good condition Monster 83s w/ Head GTOs, rock-ski worthy Rossi Super 7s with Pivots, and maybe some Atomic Alibis with PX15 clamps (which I think you sold me at some point).
