The Hope on the Slopes event had entertainment, demonstration skis, competition, bands, wine and cheese, snow sculpting and dog sled mushing. There were activities for all ages and abilities to participate in. As a technophile, I was impressed with the system set up to record the number of runs by the skiers. The skiers were given a chip to attach to their bibs and at the end of each run they skied through a finish portal that read their chip and recorded their run. An impressive way to assemble the data for the day. While photographing the set up I met the Sales Representative Nikita Dorcinvil from JustFinish.net. I didn't learn whether he was donating his gear and time for the event, but I hope so. And if he did, I guess I can give him a plug in my blog.
