Time to gear up for Nordic fun...at the Black Jack Ski swap--this weekend!
This Saturday, Nov 3, Black Jack is hosting its annual ski swap at the Prestige Resort in Rossland. Equipment drop-off is from 8:30-10:30am. Selling starts at 11am.
Says Wannes Luppens, "Sign up for all of our programs, buy your season pass, get your skis waxed by the Junior Racers, and put your name in the draw for some fabulous door prizes."
Prizes include Mountain Nugget Chocolate, a Red Mountain Day Pass, a $30 gift certificate for Gabriella's Restaurant, a book from Cafe Books West, a dozen cupcakes from Sweet Dreams Cakery, the famous Black Jack coffee mug, and more!
Gerick’s, Betty Go Hard, Petite Fromage, Andy Morel (Kootenay Nordic Ventures) and more will be representing their wares. For more info contact
