Saturday’s admission fee is $2 for individuals and $5 for families, and Sunday’s admission is free. The admission fee includes entrance into the ski swap and two complimentary Oktoberfest beers from Backcountry Brewery. The event will also be catered by Hearthstone Restaurant.Anyone interested in selling their used ski or snowboard gear can drop it off at the Riverwalk Center between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Wednesday or Thursday. The deadline for submitting items is Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. Several local venders will also be selling new ski and snowboard equipment at the event.
