The Newport Swap already has nearly every type of snow sport gear that you may want or need but we have also always had booths that offer related services. For instance local and sometimes remote Ski Areas marketing their area and programs and also selling Seasons Passes, training and other services. Local snowsports schools such as Bellevue Ski School offering snowsport training.
