Ski for free!
RUMFORD -- Along with area businesses, Black Mountain has put the axe to the old adage..."nothing is free." For the fifth consecutive year, people can ski or snowboard for free on scheduled Friday nights from 4-9 p.m.
Developed by their sister operation, Big Rock, in Mars Hill, as a way of re-establishing skiing as a lifestyle in Maine, these Free Ski Nights have proved to be an enormous success for Black Mountain, attracting hundreds of winter sport enthusiasts from all over Western Maine. Beginning in January and continuing through March, Black Mountain hopes to have five locally sponsored Free Ski Nights scheduled.
To enjoy this evening of free winter fun, all you need to do is sign in. All dates will feature free skiing and snowboarding, with selected nights offering free tubing as well. When tubing isn't free, it will be available at a discounted rate. The Cafe will be open for snacks and the Last Run Lounge for your favorite beverages.
The Free Ski Nights are as follows:
Friday, January 28, 4-9 p.m. including tubing; sponsored by Oxford Federal Credit Union;
Friday, February 4, 4-9 p.m. including tubing; sponsored by Pine Tree Cellular and Advantage Insurance;
Friday, February 11, 4-9 p.m. including tubing; sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank and Medcare;
Friday, February 18, 4-9 p.m. including tubing; sponsored by Franklin Savings Bank.
