Rossland Red Mountain Racers having Ski swap Saturday

Red Mountain Racers will be holding the annual Ski Swap this weekend, Saturday Oct. 27.

Nothing like a dusting of snow, and a chilly nose to get your heart racing for the ski season.

And the Red Mountain Racers are ready to bring you the annual ski swap.

Red Mountain Racers will be holding the annual Ski Swap this weekend, Saturday Oct. 27 at Willi Krause Field House in Trail. Gear check-in starts at 8:30 a.. and experienced volunteers will be on hand to help you price your gear if you need it.

There is a charge of $1 per checked item. Check-in continues through 11 a.m.

Ski shops from the area, including Village Ski Hut in Nelson, Mallard’s Source for Sports in Castlegar, and Powderhound and Rossvegas in Rossland are among the merchants who will be there with new gear at discounted prices. This is a great opportunity for skiers of all skills and disciplines to upgrade their gear or try something new.

Red Mountain Racers executive members will also be on hand to take Nancy Greene

Ski League registrations for the upcoming year.

Nancy Greene Ski League is open to kids from 5 to 12 years old who are able to ride Red Chair.

The Nancy Greene Ski League is the “FUNdamental” stage of ski racing.

During this time they will be introduced to basic skiing techniques and skills, develop the ABC’S (agility, balance, coordination, strength /speed) in as many different snow conditions and terrains as possible and most of all, have fun on skis.

Each year the children participate within their club in team and individual competitions. Included in the price are optional races that take place at local hills throughout the area with other Nancy Greene teams.

The focus is on skill development and love of skiing. While the program does have an element of gate and speed training, fostering a love of the sport is the goal.

There will also be experienced volunteers on the floor to help people with selecting the best gear for your ability and your dollar.

An added bonus, as always: representatives from Red Resort will be on hand to take photos for season passes to early bird season pass holders.

There is always a great selection of new and used ski gear at the Red Mountain Racers Ski Swap, so you are encouraged to come early and have fun with others wringing their hands in excited anticipation for the upcoming ski season.
