Getting Rid of Your Old Skis

Getting Rid of Your Old Skis
Recycled Skis 01
The best excuse to buy new gear is to get rid of your old stuff.

You know that ski equipment you have that’s gathering dust because you’re embarrassed to take it out? Avoid those sketchy Craigslist sales, and do something with your gear that will extend its life.

If you have old ski equipment that is still in good condition, consider donating it. Mountain town boys and girls programs are always looking for more gear.

“It gives a member an opportunity to experience something they might not be able to otherwise,” says Lynna Broyles, Boys and Girls Clubs of Northwest Colorado’s marketing and development director.

Unwanted skis would be saved from the landfill

We love a good ski swap: All the neon, the 210-cm Olins, the leather boots. But swaps are also an excellent place to be a responsible citizen. Instead of dumping your elderly Dynastars or your last year's K2s, you're effectively recycling them, giving them a new life with a new owner. But even the most beloved ski's life must come to an end someday, and sadly, that end usually comes at the landfill.
