By The Nelson Daily Sports
Want to find a good deal?
Simply head on down to the Hume Elementary Gymnasium on Nelson Avenue Sunday for the 19th annual Ski and Snowboard Swap. The event is the annual major fundraiser for the Whitewater Ski Team.
Snowboard, telemark and touring and ski gear and clothing can be dropped off at Hume between 9-11 a.m.
Twenty percent of sold items goes to the Ski Team with a $3 charge on all unsold items (maximum $10).
The swap runs from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Pick-up and payout goes between 4:30-6 p.m.
The Whitewater Ski Team is a non-profit organization that develops ski racers’ skills and promotes the fun in skiing through competition.
The youngest skiers on the team (six to 11 years) compete on the Nancy Greene Racers. The skiers learn agility, balance and coordination from certified coaches who focus on fun and technical instruction on varied snow conditions.
The Nancy Greene skiers train Saturdays from January through to March and race Sundays at local ski hills, including Phoenix near Grand Forks, Salmo, Whitewater, Summit Lake near Nakusp and Rossland’s Red Mountain.
The Advanced Racers Program (11-16 years) emphasizes strong technical skiing and fun through training and competition, with coaches promoting mountain safety and technical instruction.
