Where to sell skis?

Apologies if this isn't the right place, but I have a new set of Nordica SA 93 skis and bindings I can no longer return and I'd like to sell them, but aside from Facebook marketplace (ugh) am not sure of a good place to do that online. Any suggestions? Thanks!

One of many places. Do you have a local ski lodge that has a memo board or "for sale" board? Ski swaps are mostly done for the year at this point, if they were even done with Covid restrictions.

I don't see where you are from, but in Canada MEC (our version of REI) has a used for sale section on their website.

You can list them here on the site, once you have 25 posts. There's a sale and swap thread in the Divas only section.

I hear that. I've actually only ever sold skis at an annual ski swap near me. Drop it off and forget about it. :smile:

I always mean to do that, but every year I miss the swaps. Drop off and forget does have its advantages over meeting a stranger, though I've never had any issues (I did have one woman who wanted to meet in a public parking lot, which is understandable).

What size ? What kind of bindings? BSL ?

I live in a small town with the police station a couple of miles away. They actually have a signed meetup spot right out front for selling things online. Sold my paddleboard this summer and that's where we met. The woman who came was really appreciative of the idea of this public spot existing for this purpose versus going to a stranger's home. I really like it too.

Last year the sizing changed for all of the Santa Anas. There is now a 165, which I’m thrilled to try because I always felt between sizes with the 161 and 168 or 169, whatever it was.
Well, then you should try these in a 165. I liked the Santa Anas 93 in a 161 as well as the Sheeva 9. The 165's would be too long for me. A bit stiffer ski but would have purchased (probably over the Sheevas) but found the screaming deal on the Sheeva 9's so bought them.

Yep- exactly. They are 2021s and 165s! A great ski- I just went a different direction.

I want to retry the Santa Ana line again in all widths, just didn’t get to demo last season due to Covid. Very much looking forward to trying them again though. I was a big fan of the original 93 without metal, and I believe they backed off of the metal with this version as well.
