It is that time again, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, winter is coming. The mountains have started to acquire that white frosty covering. Excitement is beginning to build for the winter sports. And what better way to celebrate the coming season then a ski swap.
The ski swap has been a family tradition since I was a small boy and continues to be for me. In the days when saving money and doing as much as possible yourself was the norm the ski swap was a wonderful way to buy semi-used gear at a wonderfully reduced price.
Where I live it is the Mt Spokane Ski Patrol Ski Swap. Not only can used equipment be found but also last years models. Unless you are a ski snob, last years gear will do very well and so will the savings.
