Annual Ski & Snowboard Swaps

Snow Valley Resort - Ski Swap & Open House
November 1

Snow Valley's equipment swap & open house has traditionally been one of the area's largest ski & snowboard swaps. This year you can expect it to be even better as they plan to move the entire swap to the new chalet! Be sure to arrive early to snag the best deals. Stay the rest of the day and ride the chairlift, take a hay wagon ride, hit the jib setup, check out the retail sale, or just sit and enjoy the day with your fellow ski bums!

November 1-2
Bring in your old gear and pick up something new at one of Ontario's largest ski & snowboard swaps. New this year, Horseshoe is pleased to add Bikes into the mix. So if you are in the market for new ski/snowboard or bikes this is the Swap not to miss!
