Your holiday shopping dollar will go a long way at the Sky Tavern Ski Swap and you will be helping get local kids on the snow. This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the nonprofit. You can feel good about where your money is going. You can see it right out there on the snow at Sky Tavern! Got gear cluttering your closet? Bring it down Thursday or Friday until 7 pm, tag it and sell it. Sky Tavern gets 18% and you get the rest. Some items such as gloves and hats will not be accepted this year because of health concerns.

"Teaching is how I give back to Sky Tavern. I was a SkyKid and I had no idea the teachers were just everyday people volunteering to make skiing accessible to everyone."
