The Wakatipu Ski Club’s annual sale sends shivers of excitement down the spines of local skiers and boarders.
This Sunday’s sell-off at the Events Centre in Frankton promises to offer 3000 items – these include private sales of used gear plus ex-rental and demo items, and new gear unsold from last year.
Sellers can bring gear in from 9am to 11am on Sunday, paying $3 per item on display plus 15 per cent commission to the ski club – and GST on top of goods sold.
Buyers – usually numbering in their thousands – pay $3 entry and roll up between 1.30-3.30pm.
The annual sale is a big fundraiser for Wakatipu Ski Club, which in recent years has netted about $13,000 or more on sales of $100,000-plus.
