Join us for our fall gear sale from 6:00-8:00pm on Friday, November 1. You will be sure to find some sweet deals on some gently used outdoor gear. Plus, we will be joined by adidas Terrex, Zeal Optics, Weston Backcountry, and CAMP USA who will be holding sample sales and clearing inventory at the sale! 

15% - 25% of the purchase price goes back to the CMC and its great programs!

BUYERS: Credit/debit cards or cash is accepted!

SELLERS: Bring your items to the AMC (first floor conference room) on Thursday, October 31 from 3:00-7:00pm or Friday, November 1, from 3:00-5:30pm. For CMC members who are selling items, 15% of the sale price of each item will go to the CMC and the rest gets back to you! For non-CMC-members who are selling, 25% of the sale price of each item will go the CMC. Non Members, join the CMC online before the sale or when you drop off your gear and we will waive the seller fees entirely!

For convenience, please download our seller sheet to mark your items before drop-off. This will make the drop-off a much quicker process for you! Simply have a staff / volunteer check your seller sheet and items to make sure everything is marked correctly, and you're done!

Supplies and seller sheets will be provided by the CMC during the drop-off times listed above, for those who need them.

Each item you are selling needs to be listed on your seller sheet AND on the physical item. Please use tape with markers, hole-punched notecards connected by rubberband, or any method that clearly shows your last name, item #, price, and brief description on EACH physical item.

For example:   Last Name #01 Red Patagonia Jacket $20

                      Last Name #02 Orange Climbing Chalk Bag $5

Unsold gear must be picked up, or have arrangements made with the CMC with when you will be picking up the gear, by 3pm on the Friday following the sale, before it is donated to CMC partners.

Payments to sellers can come in the form of cash when you pick up unsold items or check ($5 processing fee for checks). Checks will be sent to sellers by mail in the form of a check in the weeks following the event. Please ensure your mailing address is on your seller sheet. You may ask to see your seller sheet before leaving the event to see how you made out, but payments will not be ready immediately following the sale.

What type of Gear can I sell? Please, no worn-out boots, no "city" or tattered clothing (outdoor clothing only - example: no jeans), no heavily used climbing gear, no old-style straight skis. Ancient items are extremely unlikely to sell, and therefore should not be brought in. This is a sale of quality outdoor gear only.

How should I price my items? Gear that sells is predominantly lightly used, and available for about half of the retail price, or less. The more used, the cheaper your price should be. Even new gear should be discounted!



Volunteers are needed to help with pre-sale setup, sale monitoring, cashiering, and post-sale cleanup.

Hours needed for volunteers:  3:00-7:00 pm Thursday, October 31, and 3:00-9:00pm Friday, November 1.  Pick a few hours when you can help and email

Colorado Mountain Club is not responsible for item loss, stolen, missing or damaged while in custody during the Gear Sale event.  Seller must accept these terms and conditions prior to participating and dropping off items for sale.
