It is ski swap time again

The nip in the air is a welcome reminder that the ski season is just around the corner. And it is time to swap the old for the less old.

The nip in the air is a welcome reminder that the ski season is just around the corner.   And it is time to swap the old for the less old.

Red Mountain Racers is the proud home club of newly crowned U14 Australian National Champion,Samantha Gaul.  We are once again fielding a FIS team with a visiting athlete from Denmark, Cirkeline Bigom; fastest U16 in Canada from last season, Soleil Patterson; and super-fast Kootenay racer from Salmo, Jamis Beatty. Local ski racers and enthusiasts will get their first fix of skiing with the annual red mountain racers ski swap set to take place this Saturday, October 25 at Willi Krause Field House in Trail. Gear drop off is from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. with the swap doors opening at the crack of noon.

Red Mountain Resorts will be there as usual ready to take photos for season pass holders and to sell their “locals only card.”

Phil Patterson, head coach of Red Mountain Racers, and some Nancy Green organizers will be on hand to answer questions regarding Nancy Green registration.

“This year is the first year we will only be accepting registrations for our programs online.  However, we will be happy to take payments at the Swap,” Patterson stated.
