StorySki

February 24 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

The Stark Mountain Foundation will be sponsoring the 6th Annual StorySki on Saturday, February 24, 2024, from 10:30 to 2:30. A StorySki is an event where printed pages from a children’s book are installed along the sides of a gentle ski trail that meanders through the woods. Participating children will be able to ski, read, and enjoy this year’s book, Ten on the Sled, by Kim Norman, illustrated by Liza Woodruff.

Pre-registration for the event is strongly encouraged.  The event is free, but everyone will need a lift ticket to participate. Check-in begins at 10.30 AM at the Kent Thomas Nature Center at the Snail and the Slalom Hill junction. The StorySki panels will be in place at Mad River Glen the week before and after the event so skiers can enjoy the story even if they can’t make it on the 24th.

Register Here for the 2024 StorySki

This year’s StorySki event is set to take place on Saturday, February 24th and is open to skiers aged 3 to 10, the panels will be displayed in Ben’s Glade between Loon and Wren. 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 17th through March 3rd 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.
