October is over, now it's time to dust off the lingering cobwebs from last year's winter gear that's been cooped up in the garage. Instead of throwing out last season's skis or those snow pants that no longer fit, head over to Bogus Basin's 69th-annual Ski Swap. While dropping off no-longer-needed gear for resale, shop for gently used items for the upcoming snow season. Snow apparel like goggles, pants, snowboards and anything winter-related may be among the gear waiting to be found. The last day of the swap there will be free admission for anyone who brings in a canned food item designated for Boise Rescue Mission. Whether this is your first time picking up snow sports gear, or if you're a seasoned hand on the slopes looking for some goods on the cheap, this is a tradition not to be missed.
Times Vary. $3-$5. Expo Idaho, 5610 N. Glenwood St., Boise, bbsef.org.
