Here we will offer a variety of hard goods & accessories as well as provide services such as ski and snowboard waxing, tune-ups and basic repairs. Rental equipment will also be available from the pro-shop, pricing of rental equipment and tune ups can be found on the pricing page.

We are now providing a space for you to sell your old gear! Put it in a place where people can actually see it for a better chance to sell it!
Equipment must be within the last 5 years of production and based on condition as well.
Please contact us with photos and information regarding your equipment to get started!
The following items may be registered in the swap: Snowboards, Skis, Boots, Bindings, Poles, Helmets, Goggles, Bags
We will do our best to sell your gear. When it sells you can either:
A) Take the full amount (100%) of the selling price as a store credit towards sessions at Axis Freestyle. Store credits do not have an expiry date.
B) Receive a cheque for 80% of the selling price. Cheques are mailed within two weeks ($25 minimum).
To find out if your equipment has been sold: please call us and have your SWAP ID#(s) available from your copy of the Swap Registration Form.
We cannot store your unsold gear forever. There is a storage fee of $10/month after your initial Free month. At which time the value of the storage fee becomes greater than 80% of the selling price, Axis Freestyle retains the equipment as payment / trade in value
Axis Freestyle is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.
SOME TIPS FOR SELLING YOUR GEAR
Sellers have the right to price their swap items at their own discretion.
However, we have some tips to make sure that your item will move and for the best possible price.
In general, sporting equipment tends to depreciate in value by about 50% after its first year in use. Remember that whoever chooses to buy your equipment incurs a certain level of risk regardless of its condition. Used equipment does not qualify for manufacturers’ warranties and swap sales are final.
Stores often have older models on sale for 30-40% off new. So, even if you are selling a board you bought last year at full price, do not expect a return significantly more than half of what you paid for it.
If you are attempting to sell an older item, please understand that technology in equipment has changed so those items will have a lower value and may be difficult to sell for any price.
Please be reasonable in your ask or consult us if you need an opinion.
When you enter an item into the swap, it is given a swap number. You can choose to bundle multiple items under one swap number, which ensures that they will sell together. Remember that if you assign individual swap numbers to each item, there is a chance that some of the items may or may not sell. However, if you are looking to sell as much of your gear as possible, splitting it up will allow shoppers at the swap to pick through and customize their new –used set up.
Remember that all prices at the swap are non-negotiable. To increase the chance of selling your equipment, we recommend setting the price at the lowest you will be happy with.
The individual SELLERS own the items registered in the swap. The SELLERS set the price. The price is fixed and non-negotiable. Axis Freestyle does not guarantee the condition of swap items. Swap items do not have a warranty. It is your responsibility to inspect items prior to making a purchase our salespeople are available to help you determine what equipment is most suitable, in the best condition, and best value.
Swap Items are subject to 13% HST sales tax, final sale and non-returnable.
