There are two great events for skiers in the Seattle area this weekend.

I just got back from Ski Dazzle, at WaMu Center, just around the corner from famous Century Link Field! There are several ski gear retailers offering great deals on all kinds of equipment, including Sturtevant’s, Mountain 2 Sound Outfitters, and Helly Hansen. Many ski resorts in the areas have booths as well, so you can get info and deals on where to ski this winter. Admission comes with 2 free lift tickets, and there are many promotions for all kinds of goodies. This event is Nov 6th, 7th and 8th.

If you have a chance on Friday or Saturday, head over the Bellevue for the Newport Snowsport Swap. This is a fundraiser for Newport High School, where local ski enthusiasts and retailers consign ski gear and a portion of the proceeds supports the school. Great deals for a good cause, what more can you ask for? This is one of the largest Ski and Snowboard Gear Swaps in the area this year, taking place Nov 6th and 7th.
