Bogus Basin Ski Education Foundation (BBSEF) is hosting the 70th annual Ski Swap Nov. 5-7 to kickstart the winter season. 

The event will be held at the Boise Fair and Expo center located at 5610 Glenwood with a $5 admission fee. Get in free on Sunday with a canned food donation for the Boise Rescue Mission. 

The ski swap is a volunteer based event comprised of BBSEF families, current and past, as well as Bogus Basin Ski Patrol members. These volunteers dedicate over 1,700+ hours to this three day event each year.

Get outfitted for the new season with a wide selection of new and gently used equipment ranging everywhere from snow gear to boots, boards and skis. 

While the event sells new gear donated to them from various local ski shops, those interested in selling their gently used equipment can check items in at the Idaho Expo at select times throughout the weekend. 

Determine the price you want to sell your item(s) for and receive 75% of the sales in the mail via check from BBSEF. 

Check-in times for sellers are Thursday, Nov. 4, 3-9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 5, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Unsold equipment must be picked up on Sunday Nov. 7 by 5 p.m. Check if your items have sold here.

Founded in 1967, BBSEF’s mission is “to provide access to competitive mountain sports programs for the youth of the Treasure Valley.” 

Help support BBSEF and the young snow athletes of the Treasure Valley by picking up some gear this weekend.
