Okemo Mountain School raises over $37,000 at its Ski and Snowboard Swap

This year’s Ski and Snowboard Swap had a record-breaking year and raised over $37,000 for Okemo Mountain School. The proceeds from the swap will go toward operating costs to keep tuition as affordable as possible for all students.

The event was extremely well attended this year and customers were excited with their purchases, finding outstanding deals on all sorts of new and used winter outdoor gear.

Since it is never too soon to look to the future, mark your calendars for the 2023 OMS Ski and Snowboard Swap:  Equipment Drop-off: Nov. 11, 12 and 15. Swap open: Nov. 17-19, 2023.

Okemo Mountain School, celebrating 31 years in operation this winter, is a non-profit educational institution dedicated to the academic and athletic development of serious snow sports athletes.  Student-athletes are given the opportunity to train in alpine ski racing, snowboarding or freestyle skiing, while pursuing a rigorous course of academic study.

Okemo Mountain School relies heavily on fundraisers like the Swap to provide financial aid, scholarships, and to keep tuition affordable.
