I don’t need to tell you that this is a weird year. It’s hard to keep track of what is and isn’t canceled due to COVID-19, and that includes ski swaps. Some are proceeding as planned, some have been put off for a year, some may be held as “virtual” swaps, and some are up in the air.
I did some research and found a few that are still going on. The list is substantially shorter than it’s been in the past, but given the circumstances, that’s hardly surprising. Fair warning: Before you head to a swap, make sure you check to make sure it’s still on. And when you go, mask up and maintain social distancing. It’s the right thing to do.
Know of any that are planned and aren’t listed? Post ’em in the comments section and I’ll work them in:

Looks like Waitsfield VT is doing a swap this year (2020): http://www.waitsfieldschool.org/ski-and-skate-sale
Thanks, Paul. It’s added to the list.
South Burlington HS (VT) is still doing their annual swap Sept 26 9a,-3pm outside under a big tent. Not sure what to expect this year as they are not taking new consignments.
Cochran’s (Richmond VT) is also planning to hold their annual ski swap Nov 6-8: https://cochranskiarea.com/ski-ride-sale/
Thanks for letting me know! I’ve added both to the list.
