Wausau area ski swapI’m an avid nordic skier, so when the kids where young, I introduced them to the sport. Well, the first you learn when outfitting small children with sports equipment is that they outgrow the stuff really fast. So where do you go to find quality skis and accessories and get rid of the stuff that is too small to use? The Wausau area Ski Swap may be the answer.

Sponsored by the Rib Mountain Ski Club and the Wausau Nordic Ski club, the ski swap offers both cross country and downhill skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, helmets, and clothing. Items will be inspected for safety and may be not be allowed for sale if too old or damaged. Please see the club’s websites for more information and sale guidelines.
