Ski Free Day Sunday at Titcomb Mountain
Made possible through a donation from the FMH medical staff
February 27, 2013
Titcomb Mountain is hosting a ski free day on Sunday, March 3 from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. The event is made possible through a charitable donation from the Franklin Memorial Hospital (FMH) medical staff who wanted to sponsor the day as a way of encouraging youth to be physically active. Families can ski or ride on the mountain or explore the cross country ski trails.
“The mountain will be open for all, children and their families,” said Karlene Andrews, manager of Titcomb Mountain. “In previous ski free events, we have had a high percentage of youth having their first skiing experience. In most instances, families bring their children and teach them to ski or snowboard. Many parents say that they haven’t skied in 10 or more years and are appreciative to have the opportunity to share their love of the sport with their children.”
“With the recent abundance of new snow and a forecast of partly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-30s for Sunday, the conditions should be ideal for this event,” said Dr. Robert O’Reilly, FMH medical staff president.
Titcomb features 16 alpine trails for all skill levels, including a terrain park for skiers and riders. A great beginner trail with a handle tow and a gentle slope is also available. A wide array of nordic trails for classic and skate skiing totals 15.4 kilometers.
A limited supply of equipment rentals will be available from the Northern Lights Rental Shop for $5.
