Skyliner Ski Swap – October 7 & 8, 2022

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 Skyliner Ski Swap. It’s an opportunity for those with excess gear to give those needing new and used gear to fill those needs at a fraction of retail prices. It also is a fundraiser for MBSEF that supports our programs.

Ski Swap is held at the Pavilion ice skating facility on the corner of Colorado and Simpson Avenues, right off of the fish roundabout.
