Annual ski swap proceeds

The Vernon Ski Club swap will be overflowing with new and used skis, boards, boots, helmets, poles and bindings

The North Okanagan’s biggest ski, snowboard and cross-country sales event at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

The Vernon Ski Club swap will be overflowing with hundreds of new and used skis, boards, boots, helmets, poles and bindings for all ages. There will also be plenty of clothing, both new and used.

Every year the Swap brings together many retailers from the Okanagan, Kootenays and Lower Mainland.

“They can be expected to bring great deals on new and used equipment and clothing,” states a release.

“If it’s time to retire some of you own clothing or equipment, the Vernon Ski Swap takes your consignment items and sells them for you.”

If you have equipment to sell, bring it to the Vernon Recreation Complex Friday between 3:30 and 7 p.m. Consignment tickets are $2 per item.

Information booths for the Vernon Ski Club, Silver Star Adaptive Snow Sports and Warren Miller movie tickets will be available during the swap.

Due to construction at the rec complex, the main entrance will be accessed across from the curling club. Watch for signs to the sale!

The swap starts Saturday at 8:30 a.m.
