Ski swap the biggest yet

The annual Timberland Alpine Ski Society Ski Swap Saturday was the biggest yet featuring more than 1,000 checked-in items.

The annual Timberland Alpine Ski Society Ski Swap Saturday was the biggest yet featuring more than 1,000 checked-in items, said TASS director Lisa Young.

“We want to thank everyone who came out to support us at this year’s swap,” Young said. “A huge thanks to all our volunteers who helped customers get set up for this coming season.”

The event, held in the Marie Sharpe elementary gymnasium, is an opportunity for people to drop off their used items, but also a chance to pick up downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding gear.

Also at this year’s swap were young members of the Timberland Alpine Ski Club working a concession to help fundraise for new team jackets.

“They did a great job and raised more than $200,” Young said, adding the club is looking forward to the upcoming ski season at Mt. Timothy Ski Area.

“This year we’re stoked to show everyone who we are, especially when we make the podium.

“It doesn’t matter how big your hill is — with great coaches like ours, our racers do quite well against teams from Sun Peaks, Silverstar and Grouse Mountain and they usually bring home some medals to prove it.”
