Mark your calendars now to see the best in new and used snowboards, ski equipment and clothing at the ski and snowboard swap Nov. 8 and 9 at Harrah’s Tahoe Special Events Center.

The ski and snowboard swap is an annual fund-raising event with proceeds benefiting the Heavenly Ski Foundation, a nonprofit organization. The foundation offers Alpine, freestyle and snowboard programs for youths ages 4 to 18. The foundation is proud of its members who have made the United States Ski Team — Wisi Beschart and Jonna Mendes on the Alpine team and Brook Ballachey and Chris Hernandez on the freestyle team.

The ski swap starts with the “Moonlight Madness” presale from 6 to 11 p.m. Friday. Admission is $5 per person and $10 for the entire family. The sale is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and admission is free.

People who have last year’s winter gear to sell and want to make a little extra money the easy way may bring the items to the Heavenly Ski Foundation building next to the Heavenly Resort Tram. Public registration dates for the swap will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct.29 and 3 to 6 p.m. Nov. 3. No bindings or equipment over five years old will be accepted.

For more information call the Heavenly Ski Foundation at (530) 541-7354.
