WINTER SPORTS — The 49th annual Ski Swap sponsored by the Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol coming up this weekend, Oct. 26-27, will offer a new feature to the main activity of buying and selling used winter gear — a FREE Learn To Ski Area

Beginner skiers don't have to wait until snow carpets the mountain. They can take their first turns at the Ski Swap.

Mt. Spokane Ski Area will provide skis and boots from Elan, as well as helmets for each participant.  Certified instructors will coach beginners through their first turns.

The Learn To Ski Area is FREE to all participants!  Minors must bring a parent for supervision.

All participants will receive a coupon for $10 off any beginner lesson at Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park.

The Learn To Ski area will be open at the Ski Swap on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 27, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol Ski Swap is the Pacific Northwest's largest winter sports retailer, featuring new and gently used gear from area shops and individuals.

Visitors to the Ski Swap will receive a FREE Mt. Spokane Thursday non-holiday lift ticket by purchasing advance tickets online at www.skipatrolskiswap.com

These guests will also receive a $20 Liftopia voucher, and gain early access to booth & vendor spaces at 8:00am Saturday.  Shopping begins at 9 a.m. Saturday.
