StorySki Event
Feb 25 @ 10:30 am – 2:30 pm

This year’s StorySki event is set to take place on Saturday, February 25th and is open to skiers aged 3 to 10, the panels will be displayed in the woods to the skiers’ right next to Lower Panther. Check-in and day-of registration will take place at the Nature Center beginning at 10:30 AM. The StorySki panels will be in place at Mad River Glen from February 18th through March 5th and can be enjoyed by all ages.

The StorySki is based on the idea of the StoryWalk, a project that originated in Montpelier at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library and has spread throughout the world. Laminated pages from a children’s book are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story. It was created as a way for children to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time.

This year’s StorySki will feature “The Red Sled” –  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwV7GMLq84Y

The book, Red Sled by Lita Judge will be featured in this year’s StorySki. This whimsical book depicted in bold, beautiful watercolors is a wintertime story about woodland creatures. The adventure begins when they find a well-loved, red sled outside of a cozy cabin and take a nighttime joy ride. We hope you enjoy skiing from page to page and reading this beautiful story.

The clinic will be led by Rick Ruback who has been coaching ski racing at Mad River for over twenty years. Rick is excited to bring some racing skills and drills into adult teaching as a way to help the participants improve their skiing. Joining Rick will be a collection of some of the most experienced members of the Mad River Glen Ski School.
