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.

“What the closing of a locally-owned business “treasure” may mean for you”

Eds Ski Shop of York will not be a place to swap, if you look at the Farwell

In a related event Ski Roundtop has scheduled their second annual Fall Extravaganza.  One of the many activities over the weekend is a Consignment Sale for used Ski Equipment being held by Ski Roundtop Racing Club (SRRC)
