Raise funds for the park while selling or buying cross-country gear

Fahnestock Winter Park will hold its fifth annual ski swap and fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 25, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Taconic Outdoor Education Center, 75 Mountain Laurel Lane, Cold Spring.

The ski swap is a place to sell and purchase new and used cross-country ski gear, including cross-country skis for children and adults, boots, poles, bindings, snowshoes, ski bags, roller skis and blades, car racks and ski boxes. New gear is available from Fahnestock Winter Park and Pawling Cycle and Sport.

Those who wish to swap their gear should drop it off the day of the swap between 7:30 and 9 a.m. or make an appointment prior to Oct. 25 by calling 845-265-3773. Equipment should be in good shape and set at reasonable prices (in whole dollar amounts). Ski Swap Forms can be requested by emailing [email protected].

A donation of $1 is requested for each item dropped off. If an item is sold, 20 percent of the sale price is retained by the Friends of Fahnestock and Hudson Highlands State Parks to be used for sales tax and improving Fahnestock Winter Park. Any unclaimed goods at the end of the day will become the property of Fahnestock Winter Park. If an item sells, a check, less 20 percent of the sale price, will be mailed to a home address within two weeks.

For those wishing to buy gear, admission is free. Displayed prices are non-negotiable and sales are final. Small denomination bills or checks are accepted, along with Visa and MasterCard for consignment items. For more information, visit fofhh.org.
