Brattleboro’s Harris Hill Prepping for Weekend’s Event

It’s no secret that this winter hasn’t been the most generous when it comes to snow, however that isn’t stopping the Harris Hill Ski Jump in Brattleboro in gearing up for this weekend’s annual events.

The events are the Pepsi Challenge US Cup and the Fred Harris Memorial Tournament, the latter of which has been held almost every year since 1922, save for a few years when there was no snow. But not this year! On Friday, the ski jump was busy blowing snow onto the ramp and landing and last night’s snow shower added more on top of that.

The Pepsi Challenge will take place on Saturday beginning at 10 AM for trial rounds with the competition itself kicking off around 12:45 in the afternoon, followed by awards. The next day, on Sunday, the Fred Harris Memorial Tournament will be held, following the same schedule as the day before.

As part of the two day event, ski jumpers from around the nation will compete on New England’s only Olympic-size 90 meter hill, offering concessions and a warm beer tent for spectators.
