AVSC ski swap moving to midvalley

This week’s snow is a reminder that the ski and snowboard season is just around the corner.

The Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club will have its annual Winter Sports Swap in the parking lot of Whole Foods from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 13. This is a new location for the event.

Fees from individual and commercial vendors at the Winter Sports Swap directly benefit AVSC’s Scholarship Fund.

So does the Community Giving Day on Oct. 9, when Whole Foods in El Jebel will donate 5 percent of its proceeds from store sales to the scholarship fund.

One in three athletes receives some kind of financial assistance, and between scholarships and program subsidies, AVSC provides close to $1 million annually to its 2,250 Base Camp and team athletes.
