SANTA FE, N.M. — Some are old and some are new, but winter sports enthusiasts will have piles of equipment, outerwear and accessories to browse through at this weekend’s Santa Fe Ski + Sports Swap at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center, 3221 Rodeo Road.

Admission is $5 today, while kids under 4 feet can enter for free, with hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The swap is open Sunday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., with free admission. Proceeds from the event benefit the Santa Fe Ski Team.

And you have seen that snow up in the mountains, right?
