On Saturday, February 4, 2006, Virginia’s Bryce Resort will celebrate its 40th year of ski operation by throwing a WinterFest party. In 1965, Bryce became the first ski area to open in the Shenandoah valley. Back then, the resort did not have snowmaking equipment; according to the resort, ice was dumped on the ski run the first year.
The party on February 4 will last from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Children’s activities will begin around 11:30 a.m. Contests for adults and children will be held throughout the day. From 12:30 to 3 p.m., the Charles Parker Band will provide live musical entertainment. One dollar hot dogs will be sold on the outside deck, along with other food. Volkl USA will also be demonstrating ski gear.
There will be prize giveaways throughout the day, including skis, a snowboard, apparel, and gift certificates. Weather permitting, tethered balloon rides will be offered.
The Charles Parker Band, specializing in classic and modern rock, will also provide evening entertainment in Braxton’s Bar.
