Looking for Gear for YAN Shreds program

The YAN Shreds program is once again underway, and we've been busy organizing gear for the biggest year yet! This is a program designed to get teenagers skiing/snowboarding on Red Mountain who wouldn't otherwise be able to. They are hooked up with gear, lessons and season's passes after they are accepted into the program, and they are part of a mentored group of riders. Thanks to sponsorship from the Columbia Basin Trust (Rossland,Trail,Beaver Valley YANs), Red Mountain and other organizations like the Give'r Foundation and Bear Environmental Ltd, we are able to accept 25 (!) riders into the program this year.
Every year, we ask for gear donations from the community, and each year, these youth are stoked to get hooked up with your donations. We are also open to buying gear from you, as we have a bit of a budget for this. If you're donating, we ask that the gear is in good condition (no rips or stains), that you check the outerwear zippers to make sure they work, that all boot buckles work, helmets have no dents & padding is intact, and that the skis/snowboards and boots are less than 10 years old (& in good condition).
This year, we are specifically looking for:
27-27.5 boots
26-26.5 boots
30-30.5 boots
