Along with area businesses, Black Mountain has put the axe to the old adage “nothing is free.” For the third consecutive year, people can ski or snowboard for free on scheduled Thursday nights from 4-9 p.m. Developed by our sister operation, Big Rock, in Mars Hill, as a way of re-establishing skiing as a lifestyle in Maine, these Free Ski Nights have proved to be an enormous success for Black Mountain, attracting hundreds of winter sport enthusiasts from all over Western Maine. Beginning in January and continuing through March, Black Mountain has five locally sponsored Free Ski Nights scheduled. To enjoy this evening of FREE winter fun, all you need to do is sign in. All dates will feature free skiing and snowboarding, with selected nights offering free tubing as well. When tubing isn’t free, it will be available at a discounted rate. The Cafe will be open for snacks and the Last Run Lounge for your favorite beverages. Come join the fun. This year’s sponsors include Franklin Savings Bank, Pine Tree Cellular, Bangor Savings Bank, Riverside Realty, New Page, Wal Mart, Irving Forest Products, & Oxford Federal Credit Union.
