It is with much regret that we have decided to cancel 2020's 53rd annual Westborough Ski Swap due to the uncertainty around the ongoing COVID19 pandemic. 

For the past 52 years, the Westborough Ski Swap has been run as a fundraiser to support youth programs, with the past 20 years being run by and for the benefit of Explorer Post 85, the youth auxiliary to the Westborough Fire Department organized under Scouting BSA (formerly Boy Scouts of America). It is with much regret that Post 85 has decided not to hold the 53rd Annual Westborough Ski Swap due to the COVID19 pandemic. While it is unfortunate to miss this year, we feel that we could not reasonably hold the event in a safe manner. The Ski Swap attracts hundreds of families each year, with a very busy check in, sales floor and check out. We don’t believe we would be able to maintain adequate social distancing to ensure the safety of both our members and Ski Swap participants.


Please note that we fully expect to be back in December 2021 celebrating the 54 th anniversary of the Ski Swap! Those looking for a deal on ski equipment or looking to sell what you have will have to wait. If you are cleaning out your garage or basement and have ski equipment that is still current and in good working order, we are accepting donations. To donate equipment, call 508-366-1585 or email us at info@explorerpost85.com . To our loyal patrons, we thank you for your past participation, we wish you a great ski season and we’ll see you all again in 2021.
