With the first dusting of the season already on the books, it's only natural to start thinking about opening day at one's favorite ski resort. To help locals find and sell slightly used and well-loved ski and snowboard equipment, the Utah Olympic Park Sport Clubs Ski Swap is scheduled for this Saturday, Oct. 5 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The ski swap is open to the public - and buyers and sellers are welcome. The ski swap will be located in the Legacy Center at the Olympic Park. Vendors will be allowed to set-up at 8:30 a.m. For buyers, the doors will open at 9 a.m. Swap customers should plan to bring cash or checks for purchases. The swap will feature alpine skiing, cross country skiing and snowboarding equipment as well as soft goods and apparel.
