UM Outdoor Gear Sale Returns Campus Oct. 11

September 26, 2017

MISSOULA – The Outdoor Gear Sale organized by the University of Montana’s Outdoor Program will take place from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11, in the University Center Atrium. Students and the general public are invited to buy or sell used outdoor equipment including bikes, skiing equipment, climbing gear, camping gear, clothing and more. 

Those interested in selling gear can drop off their items between 7 and 11 a.m. the day of the sale in the UC Atrium. Sellers can pick up unsold gear and receive a cash payout for their sold items between 6 and 7:30 p.m. the same day. The UM Outdoor Program will collect 20 percent of the selling price and uses the proceeds to new programs and equipment for the Outdoor Program.

The UM Outdoor Program also seeks volunteers to help with the event. Flexible shifts and roles are available throughout the day, and those that work at least three hours gain access to a special preview sale. To volunteer call 406-243-5172 or email
