Ski Swaps & Tents mean Ski Season is Right Around the Corner

Four area ski and board shops have announced dates and arranged equipment rentals for annual Buy, Sell, and Swap Events.  The huge crowds attending Ski Swaps give each store a boost in pre-season traffic to show the full line of gear, accessories, clothes, etc available for the 2009 – 2010 Ski Season.   Typical Ski Swaps are held adjacent to each store, and many will feature tents and tables for boots provided by Event Central of Mechanicsburg.
