Red Mt. Racers’ ski swap set for Saturday

The nip in the air is welcome reminder that the ski season is just around the corner, and it is time to swap the old for the less old.

The nip in the air is welcome reminder that the ski season is just around the corner, and it is time to swap the old for the less old.

Local ski racers and enthusiasts will get their first fix of skiing with the Annual Red Mountain Racers Ski Swap set for Saturday at the Willi Krause Field House in Trail.  Gear drop off is from 8:30-11:00 a.m. with the swap doors opening at noon.

Red Mountain Resorts will be there as usual ready to take photos for season-pass holders and to sell their “locals only card”.

This season, Red Mountain Racer’s welcomes to their fold newly crowned U14 Australian National Champion, Samantha Gaul, and will again field an FIS team with a visiting athlete from Denmark, Cirkeline Bigom, fastest U16 in Canada from last season, Rossland’s Soleil Patterson, and super-fast Kootenay racer from Salmo, Jamis Beatty.

Phil Patterson, head coach of Red Mountain Racers, and Nancy Green Ski League (NGSL) organizers will be on hand to answer questions regarding Nancy Green registration.  This year is the first year registration for our programs go exclusively online.  However, we will be happy to take payments at the Swap.

For information on the Nancy Greene Ski League, please contact ngsl.redmountainracers@gmail.com.  For more information on Red Mountain Racers please go our website, redmountainracers.com.
