Ski Swap is the largest fund-raiser of the year for Sky Tavern. Fees paid by Mom and Dad only cover 60% of what it takes to run the mountain, so events are a big help in closing that gap. It also takes a bunch of people to make this happen. We need help Thursday and more on Friday through Sunday.cleaning up a borrowed building, helping folks tag gear, running a ski shop we build for a weekend. Just stop in, please and lend a hand. You will get a new shirt for it. Just like any event, clean up is the hardest time to find help.
Sky Tavern is different. If you don't do it, it really does not get done and true for all season. Always keep in mind that Sky Tavern is a community effort, not a for profit company with staff in uniforms. It is simply Mom, Dad , Grandparents and not a lot more. And that is plenty.
Sky Tavern Junior Ski Program . Teaching kids and running a mountain since 1948.

This is where the term ski swap comes from. You really don't swap stuff. You put it in the sale and hope it sells while you are buying. We have a tag system to track it all. It works.
Sky Tavern retains 18% of the sales prices as our fund raiser.
Friday 5pm. Doors open for sales. Food trucks set up in our parking lot.
Saturday 9am. Sales until 3 or maybe later.
Sunday 10-2 is clean-up and giving individuals back anything that did not sell or their checks for what did!
Tell everyone, skiers or not, about the sale. Living in Reno means a cold winter. There will be something for everyone from coats to knitted hats. Skis, snowboards, boots and more.
