October is unofficially 'pre-ski' season a.k.a time to swap your stuff and load up on new/used gear.
2nd Track Sports starts the swappage this weekend with a buy/sell for gear. The outdoor consignment shop swap offers free admission, slightly used winter gear and raffles both Fri/Sat to benefit local Wasatch Adaptive Sports programs.
On the same snow front, Snowbasin's early season pass sale wraps up Sunday, Oct. 3. Season passes are $975 for adults, although prices increase Monday to $1,100. Youth, teen and young adult passes (ages 7-26) are on sale for $225-$600; prices will increase by $50 after the sale.
