It was a cold, clear crisp November day as hundreds of deal-seeking skiers and boarders lined the fence of Hume School in eager anticipation of the doors opening for the 20th annual Whitewater Ski Team ski swap.
The November 6 swap was organized by the Whitewater Ski Team and is its single biggest annual fundraising event. Proceeds from the event go towards paying the team’s eight certified coaches who brave the harsh winter days to train future young athletes.
This year the event was another huge success which raised $7,500 for the team. At its peak there were between 500 and 600 deal hunters in the gym and the place was packed.
“Thanks a ton to all the volunteers who make this event such a huge success and without whose help we couldn’t run the swap,” said team president Paul Osak who added he was thrilled with the turnout. “And the club really appreciates the support of the local ski and board stores, and sponsors who contribute to the team’s continuing success.”
And don’t forget buy your Rock Star Parking tickets. One lucky pass holder will own the rights to a private reserved front row parking spot every day for the entire season at Whitewater. Tickets are only $10 and available at the WH20 office. Proceeds from the raffle go to the WH20 Ski Team and the AABBS.
