Ski Swap opens this weekend in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- With the passes starting to get snow, ski season is getting closer.

The White Pass Ski Patrol is holding their annual ski swap this weekend. You can buy new equipment and sell old or unused equipment. 

While the patrol holds several fundraising events across the year, ski swap is what nets them the most money. They say the swap is a cheaper option for getting new gear, especially if you have kids.

"Kids are expensive, skiing is an expensive sport and this is a good way to do it without breaking the bank," says White Pass Ski Patrolman Ken Lust.

If you'd like to sell your equipment you'll need to register it with the ski patrol by nine PM tonight at the Modern Life building on the State Fair Grounds. The ski patrol says make sure the skis and bindings are still serviceable.

If you'd like to buy, the swap is open from nine AM to six PM on Saturday and ten AM to three PM Sunday.

There's also a ski swap coming up in the Tri Cities. It will be at the TRAC Center in Pasco on November 25th.
