Kick off the winter season with the Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden at their Golden Ski Swap and Snow Show.

On Nov. 10, they will be bringing together multiple winter-themed events at the Mount 7 Rec Plex. General admission to the Ski Swap and Snow Show is free.

The Ski Swap, from noon to 5 p.m., is ideal for those with a limited budget, just getting into skiing, or those just looking for a great deal.

Sellers must drop off their gear at the Rec Plex on Nov. 9 between 7 and 9 p.m., or Nov. 10 between 9 and 11 a.m. Fees are $2 per item listed under $200, and $4 for anything $400 and up. The GLCG will also be accepting donated gear to either distribute to the community, or sell to raise funds for those in need.

There is also a Sled Swap from noon to 3 p.m., where mountain sledding enthusiasts can buy or sell used snowmobiles. The Commercial Fair, featuring the newest gear from retailers, is on from noon to 5 p.m.

The Canadian Avalanche Centre will also be at the event, offering mini seminars and a feature presentation from the professionals at the CAC. And finally, the premier of “Dream Factory,” a ski movie from Teton Gravity Research is at 7 p.m. Entrance fee to the movie (a fundraiser for the GLCG) is $10.

Food and beverages will be available all day, from noon to 9 p.m.
