After it got canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, the annual Ski Swap returned for its 70th year.

The sale began Friday and ran through Sunday at Expo Idaho at the fairgrounds on Glenwood Street.

There were more than 20,000 items this year, according to KTVB.COM, at what’s billed as the largest ski swap in the Northwest. The sale benefited the Bogus Basin Ski Education Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at providing access to competitive mountain sports for young people in the Treasure Valley.

Entry was $5 or free with a canned food donation to benefit Boise Rescue Mission, the event’s website states. There was no admission fee for children ages 11 and younger.

To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the swap operated at 30% capacity. The layout also changed to allow for more social distancing and doors and windows were left open to improve ventilation, KTVB.COM reported.

Volunteers were required to wear masks and attendees were encouraged to do so.
