Elizabeth Holste, noted author and lecturer on the history of skiing in New Jersey, will be displaying antique ski equipment and local memorabilia at the annual Sparta Community Ski Swap December 3, 2011. Holste will have copies of “Skiing In New Jersey” available for purchase, a book that examines the development of the sport that started in the Garden State during the 1920s. Only three ski areas remain open in New Jersey, but thanks to Liz you can relive the thrilling descents of yesteryear at dozens of lost areas throughout the state.
The community ski swap & exhibit will be at the Mohawk Avenue School in Sparta, NJ for used & new skis, snowboards, ice skates, ski & snowboard boots, poles, apparel and accessories. Selling and buying are both open to the public; admission is free. Consignments must be dropped off at the school on Friday, December 2 from 5-8 PM. The sale runs Saturday, December 3, from 9 AM – 2 PM. There is no charge to consign; a 20% commission is taken on all items sold. All proceeds benefit Sparta High School Ski Team. The Mohawk Avenue School is located off Route 181 in downtown Sparta. For further information: http://sparta.snow.ws/swap.html or call 973-975-6159
