Tahoe Ski Swaps
Tahoe.com Staff, 10:06am, 10/15/2012
Prepare for your 2012-2013 Lake Tahoe ski vacation by attending one of the region’s many ski swaps.
Lake Tahoe ski swaps are for those looking to buy and sell winter gear, swap stories from that perfect winter and get excited for the next big Tahoe storm. If you don’t mind riding gently used or season-old new gear then attending a local ski swap is a great way to get gear at a fraction of the retail price. Or, if your garage is full of used gear then it’s also a great way to free up space by selling it off.
