Mansfield, OH (PRWEB) November 3, 2007
What's better to usher in the winter season but a great sale? Snow Trails and The Snow Trails Ski Patrol bring you the annual Winter Swap, November 9th-11th: Friday: 5:00-9:00pm, Saturday: 10:00-6:00pm, Sunday: 11:00-5:00pm. The event will be held this year as a fund raiser for the Ski Patrol who is a non-profit organization operating in cooperation with Snow Trails. For those that have never attended, picture it as a large Ski & Snowboard Tag Sale.
One Stop Shopping Convenience
Snow Trails will have both new and used equipment for beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders. It's one of the best ways of the season to outfit the entire family.
The event gives skiers and snowboarders a chance to buy, or sell, new or gently used equipment and accessories including: jackets, pants, baselayer, socks, helmets, goggles, poles, boots, bindings and much, much more. Although it is called a "Ski Swap" no "swapping" is required. You do not need something to sell in order to shop at the swap. The event is free and open to the public. The cost to the seller is one dollar per item with 20% of the sale price going to the Snow Trails Ski Patrol. All major forms of payment are accepted including cash, check, or charge. For the best selection, sellers and shoppers should arrive early. The Patrol will also be selling brats and beverages on Saturday starting at 11:00am.
The Snow Trails Ski Patrol consists of over 100 dedicated volunteers providing on-hill safety and off-hill education at Snow Trails. They are members of the National Ski Patrol system. Their mission is to serve the skiing public, without charge in the rescue and first aid treatment of the injured, offering this service in a courteous manner, affording the best public relations possible for Snow Trails and the skiing/boarding public.
The National Ski Patrol (NSP) was founded in 1938, and has evolved into one of the largest outdoor-winter rescue organizations in the world. It is composed of more than 28,500 members serving over 600 patrols including volunteer, paid, alpine, snowboard and Nordic throughout the United States and certain military areas in Europe. The NSP membership provides countless years of service and devotion to the skiing community by providing safety education, emergency care, and rescue services.
In 1980, the National Ski Patrol was recognized as a Federal Charter by the United States Congress. This is a coveted endorsement that only a few other American institutions, such as the Red Cross, the YMCA, and the Boy Scouts, have earned. The Charter stipulates the promotion of safety and health in skiing and other outdoor winter recreational activities. The NSP reports directly to Congress.
