The first cool temperatures of fall get us thinking about autumn colors, wearing fleece, and the coming of winter! Time to look at your family's ski gear and find out what you need for the ski season that's just around the corner. Each year we compile a list of Vermont ski swaps so you can consider selling ski gear you don't want, and buying something that you might need.
If you know of a swap that is not yet listed here, please drop us a comment below. Thanks!
