Ski Sale 2019
Another record breaking ski sale. Thank you to our volunteers, consigners and patrons.
We set a record for sales for the second year in a row - in spite of a power outage on Friday evening that lasted over two hours, forcing us to close early. We opened early and closed late on the Saturday and Sunday to make up the time loss.
An extra big thank you to those volunteers who answered the call for extra shifts and those who arrived very early on Saturday morning to clean up.
I am happy to say we almost doubled the number of ski club volunteers this year and I saw many of you working multiple shifts.
The Calgary New & Used Ski Sale is a great way for skiers to sell gently used gear, and for families to outfit themselves with new or gently used gear inexpensively.
It is a fundraiser for ourselves, the Canadian Ski Patrol, Calgary Zone, and the Lake Louise Ski Club. Funds raised are used to promote skier safety, skier development and other winter programs.
Equipment that is deemed unsafe or is unclaimed at end of sale is repurposed into unique furniture, recycled or otherwise utilized to avoid landfills.
Once again thank you.
Remember, the sale is 100% volunteer run. Please volunteer again next year.
