Winter is going well here in Wilmington & we are enjoying the seasonal travelers!  There is so much going on this winter in the Deerfield Valley so we thought we would share it with everyone.

Harris Hill Ski Jump 2018
More than 40 of the world’s top male and female ski jumpers from the US, Europe, and Canada are scheduled to compete this year at the Harris Hill Ski Jumping Competition in Brattleboro, Vermont. The event is sponsored by Pepsi and takes place on a 90-meter jump, designed to International Ski Federation (FIS) specifications. Jumpers launch from the take-off and soar more than 300 feet at speeds of nearly 60 mph. The event has a festive atmosphere for the whole family with food, music, souvenirs and beer tent.
2018 marks the 96th year of the Harris Hill Ski Jump & will feature the annual Pepsi Challenge and the Fred Harris Memorial Tournament, and serves as a stop on the US Cup competition of the United States American Ski Jumping (USASJ) series.

Whitingham Maple Festival

The Maple Festival celebrates an important aspect of Whitingham's economic and cultural heritage. Eight of our eighteen Whitingham sugar makers have graciously opened the doors of their sugarhouses and given their time so that residents, visitors, and guests, alike will gain a better understanding and appreciation of ‘the art and science’ of Maple syrup and sugar making and the historical importance of ‘sugaring’ to our town. Whitingham is known as the birthplace of Brigham Young and there are two monuments in town noting Young’s achievements.

The Open House Weekend is the public celebration of the maple syrup season in Vermont and an opportunity for the public to visit one or more “sugar houses” throughout the state. Activities during Open House Weekend will be different at each sugarhouse but will include the opportunity to watch maple syrup being made (weather permitting) and often sample maple products.
