March Sledding Days Cancelled

Unfortunately, the weather forecast is not favorable for holding the event this weekend, March 12th and 13th, so we will officially cancel.  We can look forward to final Longboards race next Sunday, with much nicer weather in the forecast.  Thanks to all for your volunteer support of JHSB and Sledding Days.

Sledding Days event was held on Saturday, February 13th and Sunday February 14th under warm and sunny skies.  Groomed slopes held up very well all day with the warm temperatures.  Over 300 people attended the two day event and everyone had a great time.  We raised nearly $900 for ski hill improvements. Special thanks to surrounding fire agencies for their EMT support.

SLEDDING DAYS–DAY THREE, FUN TO THE LAST

SLEDDING DAYS–DAY THREE, FUN TO THE LAST

The third Sledding Day was full of sliding fun and great memories.  The cold gray skies kept the groomed snow hard and fast. Hot chocolate and a roaring fire inside the Intorf Lodge provided warming relief. It was satisfying to see how the slope used for the Longboard Races doubled as a true community sledding hill.  Lots of folks asked about the next one. (We are talking about the Martin Luther King Holiday in January.)  Stay in touch for the next event.

We thank all those who donated.  The money will be used to hold future events and to improve the amenities at the Ski Bowl.

Special thanks to those that volunteered their time and talents: Glenn Bardet, J.D. Defenbau, Kathy Bardet, Ben Bardet, Mitchell Bardet, Curtis Cross, Scott Sibbald, Jessica Nelson, Don Fregulia Jr., Max Breedlove, Geoff Newsted, Susan Jacobson, Vicki and John Rowden, and Jeb Ellermeyer and crew at Pisten Bully in Reno.  Their efforts helped make the first Sledding Days at the Historic Johnsville Ski Bowl a complete success.

Thanks Glenn

The day started a little gray, but visibility quickly improved.  The snow was hard and fast.  We sold all the hot dogs, hamburgers, and donuts we had purchased for the three days.  Nothing but hot chocolate will be available for today.  So bring your lunch, the lodge will be open and the hill is groomed.  Hope to see you there.
