Cracker Barrel

Join us for a casual cracker barrel talk featuring memories of the King Ridge Ski Area, the upside-down mountain where you parked at the top, skied down the mountain and rode the lift back up to the lodge.
King Ridge was where so many area children learned to ski and many more enjoyed decades of family fun. Come and listen, or come and share a story or two! Feel free to bring along any memorabilia you may have.

Check our Facebook page or Kearsarge Shopper for details.
