As soon as a few maple leaves start to turn color, a Vermont skier’s thoughts turn toward winter. Yes, fall is lovely but it’s really all about for preparing for winter and ski season, isn’t it?!?
With that in mind, we're sharing our 2016 Vermont ski swap list here on SkiMaven.com. We update this list as details about Vermont ski swaps become available.
Need to outfit your growing kids with some new gear this winter? Want to expand your own quiver of skis and boards? Want to earn a few bucks by getting rid of gear that just doesn't fit right? Going to a ski swap may be a good use of your time.
