There is a $2 non-refundable tagging fee for registering each equipment item (i.e., $2 for a pair of boots, $2 for a pair of skis etc.). If the item does not sell, the tagging fee is retained.

You keep 70 % of what the items sell for; you benefit from an energetic selling staff which can get you the right price; and you don’t have to spend money on advertising -this is the best way to sell used equipment.

Registration is limited to twenty (20) items per person maximum unless special arrangements are made.

All equipment you wish to be sold may be dropped off to any Kunstadt Sports location the week of the show (Monday October 16th-Thursday October 19th) during Kunstadt Sports’ operating hours.  Equipment may also be dropped off at the EY Centre (4899 Uplands Dr.) on Friday October 20th from 4pm-7pm.  Kunstadt Sports staff will assist with pricing and transport of equipment to the show (if dropped off at any Kunstadt Sports retail location from Monday October 16th-Thursday October 19th)

The following items may be sold:

  • Alpine & Nordic Skis (Shaped/parabolic skis only)
  • Snowboards
  • Ski Wear
  • Ski (Alpine & Nordic) Boots
  • Snowboard boots
  • Ski appropriate helmets

Please make note of the following:

  1. Articles must be cleaned and in good, working condition
  2. There will be a $2.00 registration fee per article
  3. Unsold articles must be picked up Sunday October 22nd from 4pm-5pm or they will be donated

How to collect your unsold equipment/cash for sold equipment:

Head to the EY Centre (4899 Uplands Dr.) between 4pm-5pm on Sunday October 22nd to collect your unused equipment or cash for sold equipment.  Please ensure to bring your copy of the consignment form – no payment will be made without the customer’s copy.

Additional Information

As an additional security measure, we request that you attach an adhesive tape to each piece of your equipment with your last name marked, and a phone number.  This is an additional precaution in case a tag is accidentally separated from the equipment.

If item(s) did not sell and you did not come back to the show to claim your item(s), all unclaimed equipment will be donated to one of the non-profit ski associations at the show (i.e., Snowhawks, etc.).  Similarly, all cash proceeds from sales will be forfeited.  Please ensure you come for your unsold equipment/cash between 4pm-5pm on Sunday October 22nd.
