Bellingham Ski to Sea Gear Swap May 1

Since 1973, Bellingham‘s Ski to Sea Race — and the festivities surrounding it — have been a big part of life in Whatcom County. This year’s race is only a month away on May 30!

If you’re not familiar, Ski to Sea is a 90-mile race completed by hundreds of 8-member teams from all over the world. Racers start at Mt. Baker on cross-country skis. Downhill skiers or snowboarders take over from there, followed by running, road biking, canoeing, mountain biking and finally kayaking. The race ends in historic Fairhaven.

If you’re looking for gear for the race, or if you’re just looking for some good outdoor gear as the temps warm up, make sure to stop by the Community Building at Bloedel Donovan Park in the Silver Beach neighborhood, 2214 Electric Ave, from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, May 1. You’ll be able to find skis, snowboards, canoes, kayaks and bicycles at great prices!
