Great Glen Trails to Host 2012 New England Bill Koch League Festival

Pinkham Notch, NH—On Saturday & Sunday, March 3 & 4, 2012, Great Glen Trails will host the New England Bill Koch League Festival—a weekend-long celebration of Nordic skiing for children, which will bring families from throughout New England and New York to the base of Mt. Washington.

The New England Bill Koch League Festival is an annual event bringing together skiing families from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and New York for competitive and non-competitive ski events and is overseen by the New England Nordic Ski Association. The Festival at Great Glen Trails will feature relay and individual races, a non-competitive ski tour, an on-snow obstacle course, opening ceremonies with a parade and a Saturday evening dinner followed by awards. Great Glen Trails anticipates more than 400 children will take part in the Festival.

All ski events will be held at Great Glen Trails in Pinkham Notch, New Hampshire at the base of Mt. Washington. The Town & Country Motor Inn in Gorham, New Hampshire is the official host hotel of the Festival in 2012.

Run by volunteers and parents, Bill Koch League Ski Clubs meet throughout the Northeast during the winter. Designed for ages 6-13, the Bill Koch League Clubs strive to improve the health and fitness of children through cross country ski instruction, games and races. The Great Glen Bill Koch League Club meets Sundays throughout the winter season and also includes professional instruction.
