Dungeon Sale 2016: Wausau’s Biggest Ski & Snowboard Event

_DSC0434Shep_Schall_ProofsUnedited

Dungeon Sale is Wausau’s biggest sale event of ski season!  If you’re brave enough to head to the basement of our 115+ year-old building, you’ll find scary good deals on used and new ski and snowboard equipment for the entire family.

Shep’s accepts used skis, snowboards, boots, poles and helmets August 1 through October 10, 2016 for consignment sale.  We inspect all gear to make sure it is indemnified for resale and help price it unless you know exactly what you want out of it. We keep only a 10% consignment fee (when area ski swaps keep 20%).  After your used items sell, you’ve got ‘Shep’s Bucks’ store credit to use toward the purchase of any of our products or services.

Used gear is displayed alongside our own inventory of new gear, left over from last season.  The selection is great.

Kids gear goes fast, so most years there is a line at the door before our Wednesday morning opening at 9:00am.  Have no fear, there is usually enough selection to satisfy shoppers all through the five-day event.  The basement is stocked with Alpine Ski, X-C Ski and Snowboard equipment.

You’ll want to shop upstairs too, where the latest 2016-17 gear is also on sale along with the season’s must-have fashions and accessories like outerwear, sportswear, snow boots, helmets, goggles, wax, tuning supplies and more.  You can even combine the great used gear you find in the Dungeon with new alpine and XC equipment from upstairs to earn Shep’s low “package price.”  All clothing and accessories are at least 20% off during Dungeon Sale and we’ve got lots of other great specials going on.

To top it off we have crazy deals on shop work, like binding adjustments or re-mounts on dungeon gear for only $15, a full ski tune-up for only $34.99, and great prizes including a Free Granite Peak season pass which you can register for while you shop.

Once the Dungeon Sale is officially over, you are still free to shop the basement. (There’s just less to choose from!) Still not sure you want to own equipment and can’t find just want you want from our used inventory?  Talk to an associate about Leasing.

Oh yeah… don’t be alarmed when you leave the shop after the sale and run into a crowd on the sidewalk.  Shep’s is on the Paranormal Society’s Ghost Tour each year during Halloween Weekend.  Our spirits rarely makes an appearance during the event though, so you’re safe in the Dungeon.  Mwaa ha ha ha  ha…

Dungeon Sale 2016 is October 26-30.  The sale is 9am-8pm Wed-Fri, 9am-5pm Saturday and 11am-5pm Sunday. Suck up your courage, dig up the family and check our our frighteningly fun sale.
