48th annual North Tahoe Ski Swap: Get ready to grab your gear

What do you need for snowsports? Purchase good deal gear, winter wear, and raffle tickets at the North Tahoe Ski Swap Oct. 22.

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Celebrating its 48th consecutive year, the North Tahoe Ski Swap, slated for Saturday, Oct. 22, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at North Tahoe High School gymnasium, is a beloved annual event that heralds the beginning of winter ski and snowboard season.

Offering a dizzyingly vast variety of snow sports equipment and clothing, this year’s event will not disappoint the masses who enjoy getting a great deal, while also supporting worthwhile programs at North Tahoe High School and North Tahoe School.

The event began almost five decades ago as a glorified garage sale to benefit a Tahoe Community Nursery School. As interest grew, the sale later moved to more spacious digs including the high school gymnasium, as well as Alpine Meadows. Now the swap is under the auspices of North Tahoe’s public high school and middle school and will again be held in the North Tahoe High School gymnasium.

Volunteer: Mega bargain shoppers who want to beat the crowds should consider signing up as a volunteer for the event. Positions are available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Best of all, volunteers get to pre-shop at 7 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22 before the swap opens. To volunteer e-mail Sue Rae Ireland at srirelan@sbcglobal.net

Admission and raffle: Admission to the Saturday, Oct. 22 North Tahoe Ski Swap is $1. Additionally, students will be selling raffling tickets for awesome prizes including ski passes, dining gift certificates and much more.

Clean out the closet: Interested in selling equipment at the swap? On Friday, Oct. 21, both public and merchant sellers are asked to register equipment at the middle school gymnasium entrance from 3-9 p.m. Public payout and unsold item pickup is on Sunday, Oct. 23, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Items left after 1 p.m. are considered donations.

For more information, call 530-581-7050.
