Thanks to all of our volunteers, sellers and buyers. We had a very successful event. Proceed checks are in the mail this week. See you next year.
This event is very popular and busy. People line up early. Most demand is for high school racing equipment. Those shopping for youth sized equipment (170 cm skis or size 38 boots and smaller) will be advanced in the line. Find a line monitor.
