Worried about Christmas shopping? Wondering how to outfit the kids this winter? The Waitsfield Ski and Skate Sale will be opening its doors at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, November 10 and 11. Shoppers will find deals on alpine, Nordic, snowboard, hockey and snowshoe gear. Outdoor retailers such as Nordic Barn, Alpine Ski Shop, Outdoor Gear Exchange, Plymouth Ski and Sport and others will be selling their wares at competitive prices. New and used equipment options abound with staff on hand to assist the young and old, the beginner or the expert, with all their fitting needs.
This Waitsfield Elementary School fundraiser is a great way to get ready for the winter season with fleece, gloves, boards and skis and more. The sale also features brand new helmets, backcountry and AT gear.

Speed up the consignment process by pre-registering equipment. Pick up tags at Waitsfield School on Monday, October 29, through Friday, November 9, 8 to 11 a.m. Bring the tags home to label and price gear before dropping off the equipment on November 9 between 4 and 7 p.m. No straight skis will be accepted.
The Waitsfield Ski and Skate Sale is the primary fundraiser for the Waitsfield PTA. The event supports educational and enrichment programs for Waitsfield students. The event is staffed by community volunteers and supported by sponsorships from Sugarbush Resort and Mad River Glen. A consignment fee of 20 percent is deducted from all gear sold. Event volunteers are allowed a one-hour shopping head start before the doors open on Saturday.
