What a tremendous weekend for WMSC and our annual Ski Swap! This year brought a new look, new location (the club cabin) and new opportunities for which we can honestly say was a success on all fronts. It truly is amazing to see the membership, athletes, coaches and the community rally around our various initiatives throughout the season, the swap was no exception. We can’t thank those who assisted enough, without your generous donation of time and effort, this significant fundraising event does not happen. Thank you all so very much!
