Inside Edge: Come get your ski gear

Print Article

We need some snow ... One more week and it’ll be time for snow dances and ski bonfires. We’re anxious to ski the “new” mountain. The Schweitzer skiing experience will change significantly. The mountain staff was busy all summer installing two new lifts and opening additional terrain. The entire customer flow will change for the better.

Ski Swap — SARS will be hosting the annual Ski Swap at the Bonner County Fairgrounds on Saturday so come find that great deal!

Not only do individuals bring in their gear, but all the shops in the region bring in unused merchandise from last year. Skis, boots, boards, helmets, clothes and goggles are available at great discounts. Equipment turn in for sale will be available noon-7 p.m. Friday.

SARS charges .50 per item you check-in and 20% of the sale price if sold. Sales will be Saturday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Entry is $2 per person or $5 for a family.

If you are selling, you can retrieve unsold items or your profits from 5-7 p.m. Saturday. Items not picked up will be donated to charity.

Warren Miller returns — It’s not winter until the Warren Miller says so. This year’s show, brought to you by the Alpine Shop, is this Saturday at 7 p.m. inside the Panida Theater.

Get ready to celebrate winter with Warren Miller’s “Timeless,” celebrating the 70th consecutive year of these great productions. Featuring ski legends like Glen Plake, alongside newcomers Caite Zeliff, Jaelin Kauf and Baker Boyd.

Road-trip with rippers from Arlberg to the Matterhorn, be immersed in the hometown hill of Eldora and discover a different side of Jackson Hole, plus much more. Once again, winter begins with Warren Miller. The event will include prize drawings during intermission, a silent auction and drawings for the Independence Racing Team Super Outdoors Raffle, which is currently underway.

The raffle features six major prizes, including a Schweitzer unlimited season pass, a six course golfing package for two, a paddleboard, a cruiser bike from Greasy Fingers and a week stay at Pend Oreille Shores. So bring a few extra bucks and win big!

Show tickets are available at the Alpine Shop for $15 or online at panida.org. This show always sells out so please buy early.

Junior Race Series sign-up — This popular series features free coaching, lots of prizes, lots of kids and lots of fun! Racers meet four Friday evenings in January from 5:30-7 p.m. No excuses – come join the fun!

Historically we get an 80 percent participant return rate, so you better register now. Entry forms can be found at the Alpine Shop in Sandpoint and at the Warren Miller Show.

Potpourri — The Edge will appear every Thursday until April with all your ski racing news. Any comments, recommendations or contributions to this column may be sent to Shep Snow by email at shep@thesnowschool.com.
