The Boise Community Ski Swap is back for its third year, promising an exciting weekend for winter sports enthusiasts and a chance to support two noteworthy causes. This popular event will be held at Five Mile Plaza, located conveniently at the corner of Overland and Five Mile, near Country Time Doughnuts at 10370 West Overland.

Supporting NubAbility and Volunteer Ski Patrol

One of the standout features of this year's ski swap is its commitment to giving back to the community. The beneficiaries of this event are the NubAbility organization and the dedicated Volunteer Ski Patrol at Bogus Basin.
NubAbility, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to empowering individuals with limb differences to participate in sports. They host a winter camp at Soldier Mountain, where they teach adaptive skiing techniques to children and young adults. This life-changing experience gives participants the skills and confidence they need to conquer the slopes, demonstrating that nothing is impossible. The funds raised during the ski swap will go towards supporting this vital winter camp, ensuring that more young athletes can benefit from these transformative experiences.

On the other hand, the Volunteer Ski Patrol at Bogus Basin is a group of passionate volunteers who play a pivotal role in ensuring the safety of visitors to the beloved Bogus Basin ski area. They provide first aid, conduct rescue operations, and help maintain the safety and enjoyment of the slopes for all. Your support at the ski swap directly contributes to their efforts to keep the slopes safe for everyone.
