It starts with the changing leaves. The color shows itself slowly at first. And then, before you know it, the leaves are gone and we’re celebrating the first fresh snowflakes of the season.
Fall in Vermont also brings ski swaps. And quite a few of them, too. We compile a list every year so you can plan accordingly. Do you have ski or snowboard gear to sell? Or do you need a few pieces of gear for the family? Better start figuring it out now – before the snow flies!
We will update this list as more events are announced and details are confirmed. You may want to bookmark this page. Better yet, share it on social media so you can always find it there. If you know of a swap that is not yet listed here, please drop us a comment below. Thanks!
