TahoeXC Ski Swap

The Largest Cross-Country Ski Swap in California! The BEST place to buy, and sell, Nordic Gear.

The 19th annual Tahoe XC Ski Swap is on Saturday, November 11th at 10am, at Tahoe XC.

The proceeds from the Ski Swap benefit the Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Education Association.

How the Swap Works


If you are looking to purchase equipment, the swap opens at 10am. Admission to the event is FREE. There will be several volunteers and equipment representatives to help you find the right equipment for your needs. Typically available are Backcountry, touring, dog-walking, and racing skis, boots, poles and bindings as well as clothing and other apparel/footwear. Some products are used, many are new. You are sure to find what you are looking for, but arrive early for best selection.

Upon entry, each shopper receives 1 Raffle Ticket. We will be raffling off 2 Adult Season Passes this year! More raffle tickets can be bought from volunteers. You can get 10 tickets for $20.

All proceeds from the raffle and swap go to support the Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Education Association (TCCSEA)*.

*TCCSEA is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides children in the community with a unique opportunity to participate in a sport that will provide lifelong enjoyment and health benefits, and it can also provide motivated individuals with a foundation for world-class training/competition. Many young athletes from the area move on to compete at the national and international level in Nordic skiing. TCCSEA also supports the Nordic ski teams from North Tahoe Middle and High School by providing free trail access and coaching support for every student/athlete.

We will be serving food from 9:30am to 12pm. Breakfast burritos, coffee, juice, and more from Men Wielding Fire.

Selling Equipment?

If you have equipment to sell, bring it to Tahoe XC on Friday, November 10th from 10am to 6pm. You will fill out a Swap tag and the matching paperwork and your items will be entered into the swap.

The TCCSEA commission is 15%.

If your items sell, we write checks on Sunday, minus our commission on sold items. Sunday is the day you can pick up your check and/or your unsold items. If you choose to donate your unsold items to TCCSEA, we can take them and mail you your check. If all your items sell we can send you a check in the mail and save you a trip on Sunday.
