Skyliners, Bend’s first ski club, was the brainchild of three Norwegians and a Swede: Nils Wulfsberg, Nels Skjersaa, Chris Kostol, and Emil Nordeen. The outdoor club was born out of a search and rescue effort in the Three Sisters area in September 1927. Within the first years, the club grew to 300 members and organized activities around mountain climbing and winter sports.
Fast-forward to 1986 – Skyliners was integrated into the Mt. Bachelor Ski Education Foundation, now known as Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation. (MBSEF).
Each October MBSEF hosts the annual Skyliners Ski Swap. This is a great community event and a really fun way to kick off the winter season. The swap is an opportunity for those with excess gear to sell it and those needing new gear to shop at a fraction of retail prices. It is also a fundraiser for MBSEF that supports our athletes by reducing program costs and allowing us to offer needs-based scholarships and travel grants so all of our athletes can chase their dreams on snow.
