Supports the Largest Volunteer Ski Patrol in the USA

PENINSULA, OHIO (Sept. 7, 2017) – The largest ski patrol in the country will be holding their annual fundraiser ski swap from Friday, Oct. 13 until Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017 at Boston Mills Ski Resort in Peninsula.

“The ski swap provides families with a convenient way to buy and sell used skis, snowboards and boots when their kids outgrow their equipment,” explained Tom Ciranna, Patrol Director of BMBWAV Ski Patrol. “This annual ski swap kicks off our winter season and is our only fundraiser.”

Gently used ski and snowboard boots, skis, snowboards, and snow sport apparel will be accepted from Monday, Oct. 9 through Saturday, Oct 14 by ski patrol volunteers at the swap tent set up at Boston Mills Ski Resort, 7100 Riverview Road, Peninsula, Ohio.

The ski swap is organized by the BMBWAV Ski Patrol, which volunteers seven days a week at three locations in Northeast Ohio, helping the skiing and snowboarding guests.

More than an estimated 7,000 items will be available for sale, making it one of the largest ski swaps in the Midwest. Those who want to buy boots, skis, snowboards. and snow sports apparel should come to the swap Friday morning Oct. 13 through Sunday afternoon Oct. 15. Volunteer patrollers will help people to find suitable equipment.

This is a consignment sale where the equipment owners set all the prices. Twenty percent of the proceeds are donated to the non-profit ski patrol as a 501c-3 tax-deductible donation. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted. Unsold items must be picked up by 6 pm on Sunday, Oct. 15.
