Ski Swap

Each year the Bogus Basin Ski Education Foundation (BBSEF) looks forward to hosting the annual Ski Swap, presented by Toyota. BBSEF volunteers enjoy helping outfit winter sports enthusiasts for the season ahead.

In addition to kicking off the ski season, this community event is a major fundraiser for the Bogus Basin Ski Education Foundation. BBSEF’s mission is to provide access to competitive mountain sports programs for the youth of the Treasure Valley.

1,700+ volunteer hours go into this 4-day event. Most Ski Swap volunteers are current and past BBSEF families. Members of the Bogus Basin Ski Patrol and Bogus Basin Ski Club also pitch in to help. We could not bring the Ski Swap to you without the hundreds of hours our families and friends volunteer each year.
