Huge Ski Swap - Sponsored by Mt Hood Ski Patrol


Recommended Posts

Skiers and riders: Get your tail to West Linn High School on October 11th and 12th for crazy-good deals on new and used skiing and snowboarding gear.


If you have old gear lying around in your garage, bring it in on October 10th and we'll sell it for you (no skinny skis, please.)


This is Oregon’s best winter sports equipment and clothing event featuring thousands of new and used winter sports items being sold by both individuals and area sports stores. Equipment, clothing and accessories for all winter sports are available, including nordic and alpine skiing & snowboarding. Sports retailers around the northwest will be there to sell thousands of new and demo’d equipment items at incredible swap prices!


The Mt. Hood Snowsport Swap benefits the West Linn High School Snowboard Team and the Mount Hood Ski Patrol.


The swap works like this: on October 10th, hundreds of people will drop off their used ski and snowboard gear. They set a price and if it sells they make a profit.


Proceeds from the ski and snowboard swap will be shared between the West Linn High School Snowboard Team and the Mount Hood Ski Patrol. It will help students afford to participate in West Linn High School’s Snowboard Team, which is beginning its tenth year introducing kids to competitive snowboarding.


Proceeds will also help buy medical equipment for the Mount Hood Ski Patrol, which provides mountain rescue services to thousands of skiers and snowboarders every year on Mount Hood. The West Linn High School Snowboard Team will also benefit from the swap and use the profits to help kids afford to participate.


The West Linn High School Snowboard Team boasted 61 members last year. This program is not free. Students must pay for all of their own gear, coaching, registration fees, transportation and season passes. The team is a member of the Oregon Interscholastic Snowboard Association and a Venturing Crew.


The Mount Hood Ski patrol is one of America's busiest volunteer ski patrols, providing nearly 2,500 days of service to four ski areas on Mount Hood. The patrol is one of the oldest in the country, founded in 1937 by a group of men who wanted to help injured skiers. 70 years later, the patrol boasts more than 200 volunteers who help thousands of injured skiers on Mount Hood every year.


The Mount Hood Ski Patrol is a non-profit, volunteer organization. None of our patrollers are paid for their hard work nor are they reimbursed for their expenses. Our patrollers spend countless hours of their free time patrolling Mount Hood's slopes and keeping up to date on some of the best medical training available.
