It is that time of year again! The WMSC SWAP is just around the corner! This year the SWAP will take place over 1 day only (Saturday October 9th). The WMSC SWAP operates 100% through volunteers and there are plenty of shifts for everyone – but get your choices in fast!


The Fairmont is hosting the SWAP in the MacDonald Ballroom and we will be following all provincial Covid guidelines including mandatory masks.


Volunteer shifts are:

Parents, please note that while there are many shifts needing to be covered, we only have shifts for U16 and FIS athletes. The area behind the check-in tables and cash tables is for adults that have signed up for those shifts only please.

The net proceeds from the SWAP support the ski club, race programs and WMSC athletes. Please come and support your club. The SWAP is a tremendous opportunity for families and racers to exchange gear.
