Winter’s not that far off so it’s time to get ready for skiing.

The Vernon Ski Club will host the 43rd annual Vernon Ski and Snowboard Swap Saturday starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

‘If you are looking for great deals on alpine ski, snowboard or cross country gear, the annual swap is the place to find it,” said Troy Assaly, a club volunteer.

“There are boots, clothing and equipment, new and recycled, all at great prices.”

Every year, the swap brings together up to 15 retailers from throughout the Okanagan, Kootenays and Lower Mainland.

“They can be expected to bring great deals on new and used equipment and clothing,” said Assaly.

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

If you have equipment to sell, bring it to the Vernon Recreation Complex Oct. 14 between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.  Consignment tickets are $2 per item.

During the swap, information booths for the Vernon Ski Club, Silver Star Adaptive Snow Sports and the Canadian Ski Patrollers will also be on site.
