Beat the Winter Blues at Winter Fest!
Join us on Tuesday, February 26, from 5-8 p.m. at Blue Hills Ski Area
Join the Friends of the Blue Hills and the Blue Hills Ski Area for an evening of winter fun at Winter Fest! Come for a night hike or get your exercise on the slopes downhill skiing. Whether or not you choose the outdoor activities, there is plenty of inside fun too: you can tap your feet to the spirited Irish tunes of Songs for Ceilidh, taste chili from some of the best local restaurants, entertain the kids with crafts, and warm up in front of a blazing fire while enjoying the company of old and new friends. Update: Please call the ski area to confirm the Night Hike. We may have to cancel, due to inclement weather. Ski Area phone: 781-828-5070.
The event is FREE!
Blue Hills Ski Area will be offering discounted ski tickets for the night. If planning to ski, print the front page of www.FriendsoftheBlueHills.org or the FBH Facebook page and bring it to the event. For more information, email info@FriendsoftheBlueHills.org.
If you’d like to join us for the night hike, here are a few tips for what to wear and what to bring:
- Wear good hiking shoes or boots. One never knows the conditions, mushy, icy… but appropriate shoes with some traction would be smart.
- Bring a flashlight or a phone with a flashlight. It’s always helpful to see the roots, rocks or ice on the trail.
- Carry a ski/hiking pole if you have one. We have a limited supply if you don’t have one to bring. You may find it helpful, particularly if it’s icy.
