Mother Nature may not be cooperating in the snow department right now, but the New England skiing community is finding fun ways to share their excitement for winter. We have three great events on the calendar this weekend, with something for everyone – whether it be a guided hike and evening around a fire pit or racing for all ages on fantastic snowmaking loops in classic and freestyle formats. Gather your family or friends and enjoy the weekend’s adventures!
