VAIL ” Swap ’til you drop on Friday and Saturday at the annual Ski and Snowboard Club Vail Ski Swap.

“It’s going to be huge and we’re praying for snow,” club Development Director Jennifer Vance said.

She expects 30 to 35 vendors providing wall-to-wall equipment at Dobson Ice Arena in Vail. Skis, snowboards, boots, clothing and accessories will be sold at discounted prices.

“There’s more product than you can even comprehend,” Vance said.

Early birds can catch the goodies from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday for $15. From 7 p.m. on Friday until 3 p.m. Saturday admission is $5. Admission is free after 3 p.m. on Saturday. Students with identification receive $5 off admission and children under 12 are free with an adult.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Proceeds benefit the nonprofit club’s youth programs in alpine, freestyle and Nordic skiing. More than 50 members have participated on the U.S. Ski Team over the club’s 40-year history.
