Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow will light up the night sky with help from the Ludlow Fire Department on Saturday, Feb. 26.
Okemo's Light the Night Rail Jam will showcase skiers and snowboarders during an illumniated event. The multi-million candlight power of Ludlow's fire truck searchlights will be on site to provide searchlights all along Okemo's Bull Run trail. The Killarney Irish Pub will ante up $250 in prize money and host a party following the event.
The competition will be a jam format. Half of the proceeds from the
$20 entry fee will go to support the Ludlow Fire Dept. for their help in
supplying the illumination. The other half of the entry fee proceeds and the prize purse from the Killarney will go to the event winners. There will be no lift service for this event.
Registration for the Light the Night Rail Jam will take place in Okemo's Clock Tower Base Lodge starting at 4 p.m.
The competition is slated to begin at 6 p.m.
Spectators are welcome and the Sitting Bull will be open for refreshments. D.J. Dan from Okemo's Parks Crew will be spinning the wheels of steel.
