Updated Schedule

Because of unseasonably warm weather and thinning of the ice on the pond, we have moved the racing venue to the ski hill. There is no racing tonight, but by 8 am Saturday, we’ll be ready to go with the first toboggans. All the Winterfest events are going on as planned in town and, with the new 6+ inches of snow, the skiing and riding at the Snow Bowl are excellent! We recommend riding the shuttle bus from town: parking at the Snow Bowl is even more limited than usual.

10 a.m. to 7 p.m. — Team registration and toboggan inspection in Tobogganville

10 a.m. to 8 p.m. — Bonfire, food vendors, souvenir sales in Tobogganville and skiing and snowboarding on Snow Bowl slopes

The most revered prize of the past 25 years of U.S. National Toboggan Championships is to win first place in the 4-person division. The division has twice as many teams as the other two combined, and has twice as many teams in the finals, based on fastest times. The 2015 4-Person Division first place winner is #285 4 LO with times of 9.05 and 8.98, for a combined total of 18.03. (Photo by Dave Ridley)
