My apologies if anyone has already posted ski swap info for this fall.

I'll probably hit the Ski Haus in Annapolis for the swap (Oct1-Nov5)

Any others in the area?

Pro-Fit Ski & Mountain Sports in Leesburg, VA will be having their swap on November 19.  I don't think they have any details on their web site yet, but plan to post them soon.

Hello Everyone, it would be cool if the retail side sent us a list. I know too simple. I take the time to look and update all free.  PLEASE add a link and info here In this forum.

I still need to find a calendar/event Word Press Free plugin. I really want to be able to pull in all the College and public schools off days. For me the days to avoid, since  I have flexibility.  

TODAY Sept 30 / Oct 1 is World Cup Ski and CYCLE in PA 

Here is the current list I have. We cover MD, PA Lower Central, and Nova. 

If you need to find one in your location, search on SKI SWAP and your state. also, look on Facebook. ore reach out to a local ski club and Ski Patrol organizations.

Hello Happy Friday,

The Calendar format is up and running. At the bottom is a print icon to print out a  calendar grid.

IF you run a swap/ know of a swap in the PA, MD, DC, Northern VA, or WV post here so I can add it.

Sample Look - click on the date. OH notice WED SKI HAUS SPORTS IS CLOSED.


Click on day and swap and this window will appear for the link. I will add more but best to check the Store/Owners link. Stuff happens.

TAGS at bottom   SWAP     STR CRDT = Only Store Credit  

Plan to add a  map.  Add slope events and Local school system planned off days. 

Have a happy weekend

Morning,  I am using a new plug-in for the Calendar. All new full redesign.

Still, a few more to add. Still adjusting to the new Plugin. 

---- Building out a calendar view allows me to see the patterns and trends ----------


#1  Look ahead - Go to the Originator/SWAP holder and find out the drop-off dates, rules, and restrictions.

#2 Some SWAPS are now STORE CREDIT ONLY.   If you are a  seller and expect a return of cash do your homework.

#3 Adding School Off Days - So far JAN / FEB has  FIVE 3-day weekends. Friday and Mondays may be busy, TUES-THURS may be the days for the least slope traffic. (Only Ba County, plan to use 3 large counties in MD, NOVA, DC suburbs)  This should produce a good composite. 

ANY SWAP Organizer I cannot list unless I have a full link to the details. Partial details cause more work.

FACEBOOK is not the only place since many do not use Facebook. A real URL to a website is best.

EXPECT a few more updates this week.

The Ski Center LTD ski swap and sale on Sunday, Oct. 29, 8am-4pm, benefits the Liberty Ski Patrol.  People who sell something get 100% store credit.


Having enough goods and buyers to purchase all those items will be a significant help.  15% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Liberty Ski Patrol to be used for training and educational purposes (even though the seller gets 100% store credit).  Liberty Ski Patrol is a not-for-profit organization.
