Benefit ski race for Quarry Hill School to be held March 19
MIDDLEBURY — Quarry Hill School is proud to announce the seventh annual Iguana Cup Ski Challenge Sunday, March 19 at the Middlebury College Snow Bowl. Team and individual racers — skiers, snowboarders and telemark and norpine skiers — will compete for the handmade, whimsical and prestigious cup.
Quarry Hill celebrates more than 40 years of providing preschool experiences to hundreds of Addison County children. The Iguana Cup is named after Warren, the beloved green iguana who lived at QHS for many years. The Iguana Cup Ski Challenge is a valued fundraiser for the school and a way to bring together a community of families of all ages to share a fun outdoor day at the Snow Bowl.
The Iguana Cup is open to skiers of all ages and abilities. Pre-registration is available until March 16 at noon and includes a raffle ticket for each participant. This year’s grand prize is a Rossignol snowboard and $150 gift certificate to Outdoor Gear Exchange. Other prizes will be awarded thanks to the generosity of many local sponsors.
Day-of registration/sign in is from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Snow Bowl. The course will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on lower Allen. Unlimited runs on the course for participants will provide fun for the whole day. Awards and prizes presented after the course closes at 2 p.m. Cost for each pre-registered skier is $20 and $25/skier on race day. The Snow Bowl will offer a special discounted lift ticket of $35 ($55 value).
