Even as I write this, the wind is whipping and light precipitation comes and goes as the area tries to decide what season we’re in.  While the leaves have just turned in all of Fall’s glory, I’m really hoping these force 10 winds won’t blow them off the trees just yet.  That being said, it is obvious that winter will soon be blustering its way into the area and reminding us to get our gear in order.

Ski Swaps are great for that, especially for those with families. It’s no secret that ski equipment is pricey stuff and kids grow out of it all too quickly. For more advanced skiers, it’s a chance to upgrade equipment without spending ‘beaucoup dinero’ for brand spanking new items at the ski shops.

* Ski Swap Season kicks off this weekend at the North Lake Tahoe Ski Swap and Homewood Pumpkin Festival. The event has new owners and has changed its venue to Homewood Mountain Resort.  There will also be a raffle and bake sale with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the North Tahoe PTO, supporting their youth programs.

But wait! There’s more! Even if you’re not in the market for new equipment, Homewood is also having its Pumpkin Festival at the same time, so if you’re aching for some pumpkin pie or want to try your hand at being the best pumpkin carver ever, here’s your chance.

And don’t forget to buy your season ski passes if you haven’t already.  The further into the season we get, the more expensive they are. Go to the Ski Area Column on the left hand side of this page for links to your favorite local ski areas.
