Coming up this Sunday, March 30, at Mt. Timothy Ski Area is the popular Dummy Downill Race and Hawaiian Day.
For the Dummy Downhill Race hill guests, or anyone interested, are asked to design and build a ‘dummy,’ on skis or a snowboard, in attempt to see which one can take the best plunge off the big-air jump to its demise.
Piccolo added Mt. Timothy Ski Area may stay open the following weekend of April 5-6, before closing.
“The snow conditions are amazing,” she said. “We just haven’t made a solid decision.”
