Visitors to the breakfast can expect a delicious spread of pancakes, eggs, Merck’s sizzling pork breakfast sausage, hot coffee, juice, and, of course, Merck Forest’s house-made Vermont-certified organic maple syrup.
The celebration boasts other happenings as well. A variety of children’s activities will be held, a tree tapping demonstration, and tours of the sap house will be offered this year. There may even be newborn lambs in the barn! Wagon or sleigh rides will convey visitors from the parking lot to the sap house. Our staff looks forward to hosting another great event this year. We hope to see you there, and, please call 802.394.7836 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions. Tickets are sold at the door. Interested in volunteering? We’d love the help.

Rando – short for randonnée – ski racing hearkens back to skiing’s early years, when skiers challenged the mountain both up and down, without the help of chairlifts. Using climbing “skins” with alpine touring or telemark bindings (or even “split” snowboards), racers start at the base of the mountain, ascend it, then descend it (on marked in-bounds ski area trails), as fast as possible, over multiple laps, up to 5,000′ cumulative vertical, in the truest test of the most complete skier overall. For course layout details and updates, follow them on Facebook.
