We received the following press release regarding the CT Winter Games at Ski Sundown too late for publication in our February 23 edition of the NH+ INDEPENDENT. Sign up is at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, February 26, the morning of the event.
Ski Sundown hosts the Connecticut Winter Games for Seniors on Tuesday, February 26, 2013. The event is co-sponsored by Ski Sundown and the Connecticut Ski Council. The event is open to individuals age 50 and older.
Events include Downhill, Giant Slalom, and a Snowshoe race. Each event is divided into classes with a total of nine age brackets for both men and women. While the events are competitive, the Winter Games also promotes enjoying snowsports in the winter months and staying active for “seniors” of all ages.
Registration begins at 8:00 am in Ski Sundown’s lodge. Participants can register online at skisundown.com or the morning of the event. Opening Ceremonies will be held at 8:30 am, events start at 9:30 am, and the Awards Ceremony will take place at 2:00 pm. Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals will be awarded in each age bracket for each event. The $35 registration fee includes 1, 2, or all 3 events and a discounted lift ticket.
