2021 Bethel Outing Club Ski Sale, October 29th & 30th

Used Gear Inventory Sheet

The sale happens the last weekend in October at the Gould Academy Field House on Church Street in Bethel--Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.  The BOC Ski Sale has provided a community service for 41 years by bringing new and used equipment from major ski shops and local and visiting skiers, with any proceeds benefiting youth outdoor programming that is organized by the Bethel Outing Club. The club keeps 20% of the sale price for each item that you sell and you get the rest (donations of equipment are also welcome and support BOC's non-profit mission). Masks will be MANDATORY for the 2021 Ski Sale. Sorry, no exceptions!
