One of the most anticipated events of the season is coming u this weekend. The annual Casper Mountain Racers Ski and Bike Swap is slated to begin on Thursday.

What started out many years ago as a marketplace and trading place for skis and ski equipment has transformed into a snowboard and gear swap and now a bike swap too. Check out your closets, storage sheds and garages and grab that gear that no longer fits, is no longer used or just really needs to find a new home and bring it out to the Hall Of Champions at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds in Casper on Thursday. Some great people from the racers will be on hand to help price your merchandise and to get you signed up. All sales start on Friday with an early bird session starting at 7AM. Here is the whole schedule
