The Taos Winter Sports Team will be hosting its annual Ski Swap on Saturday-Sunday (Nov. 16-17) at the Sagebrush Inn, 1508 Paseo del Pueblo Sur, Taos. The swap starts at 10 a.m. on both days. If you're interested in selling snow sports equipment, you can drop it off on Friday (Nov. 15) between noon and 6 p.m.

There will be a silent auction and both used and new equipment will be sold. There will also be a bar for drinks and a concession stand for food.

On top of that, representatives from Taos Ski Valley will be on hand to sell season passes to attendees and Taos Winter Sports Team will be registering people for its program.

For more information on the event, follow Taos Winter Sports Team on Facebook.

Taos Swim Club to host Turkey Trot

On Nov. 23 - the Saturday before Thanksgiving Day - the Taos Swim Club will host its eighth annual Turkey Trot at the Taos Youth and Family Center, 407 Paseo del Cañón East. The race is a 5K run or walk course, and participants of all ages can compete in the event.

The race will start and end at the Taos Youth and Family Center and, along the way, will travel west past the roundabout, then past the hospital on Weimer Road and will follow a trail that parallels Paseo del Cañón.

For early registration - which runs through Saturday (Nov. 16) - the fee to participate is just $25. But after that date and through race day, the registration fee will be bumped up to $35. For children up to the age of 12, the fee is $10.

Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort is open

Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort's ski season has begun. On Halloween (Oct. 31), the resort announced its opening, the first to do so in New Mexico.

From Nov. 2-22, the resort is open on the weekends only. But after that, it is open daily from Nov. 23-Dec. 1 and again from Dec. 6-March 22.
