    Dungeon Sale 2023: Wausau’s Biggest Ski Sale is Oct 23-28

    Dungeon Sale is Wausau’s biggest annual ski consignment sale!
    Shop 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday, Oct 23-28, 2023.

    Dig up the family and head to the Dungeon. If you dare

    Frighteningly low prices on used and new ski and snowboard gear plus clearance priced clothes, winter boots, accessories and outerwear in addition to discounts on ski shop services is what you’ll find during our most popular annual event. Kid’s gear is among our most popular categories and we have a great selection of sizes.

    Have something to sell? Drop off healthy, clean used skis, snowboards, boots and poles through Oct 7, 2023. After passing a quick inspection by our Pros, they’ll be part of our Dungeon Sale inventory. We help price it for you and keep only a 10% consignment fee when it sells, then give you Shep’s Store Credit to use toward the purchase of any of our products or services. We don’t accept clothing for consignment.

    We’ve permanently moved our famously low-priced ski and snowboard gear from our basement Dungeon to the 3rd floor Tower, where we have more room for all the awesome gear you’re excited to see. If stairs aren’t your thing, we’ll bring the deals to you on the main floor.

    Sorry, we don’t allow shoppers in the Dungeon Sale without a Shep’s team member. You can shop our discounts on the main floor and Clearance Balcony if you find you have to wait for a Shep’s associate for a short time.

    Is new 23/24 gear on sale too?

    You bet! Our “Package Pricing” (you can call it bundling too) allows you to pay the lowest possible price on all new ski and snowboard necessities including skis, boards, boots, bindings and poles. Helmets and Goggles will be discounted as well.

    Combine used and new items to create your ski or snowboard bundle/package. You’ll get our lowest price on each item.

    Deeply discounted outerwear, clothing, footwear and accessories will be located in our Clearance Balcony during Dungeon Sale. Plus you’ll get 15% off new 23/24 must-haves including goggles, helmets, clothes and footwear.

    What else do I need to know?

    • Please shop in person another time if you have symptoms of any illness.  There’s plenty of gear available. Apart from off-site ski swap dates, you can shop our used-gear inventory any time beginning Oct 23, 2023.
    • Race Gear is limited again this year. Please contact us if you’re interested in race goodies and meet with our race experts another time. (The Dungeon Sale is likely not your best option — we have other special arrangements for race team members!)
    • Binding Adjustments for Dungeon Sale downhill skis will be $15 (Bring your ski boots along if you aren’t buying new ones.)
    • Shop Monday-Saturday 10am – 5pm
    • We don’t allow pre-sales or pre-shopping. That would be monstrously unfair.
    • We don’t accept returns of consigned gear once purchased.
    • We don’t allow Dungeon gear to be put on Hold.
    • If you need to shop for someone who can’t attend the event, please bring shoe size, height, weight, age and, for children, a tracing of their footprint.

    Limited appointments are available for Dungeon Sale. Don’t fret if we’re booked up when you click, we’ll take care of you when you visit. Mon-Sat 10-5.
