March Meltdown – the 7th Annual Subaru Ski ‘n’ Board Day on Saturday

The private hills of the Heights of Horseshoe are inviting skiers and boarders on Saturday, March 8th to the March Meltdown – the 7th Annual Subaru Ski ‘n’ Board Day.

The event is once again presented by Davenport Subary of Orillia. The March Meltdown is a family-oriented event that will include activities both in the chalet and out on the hills. All proceeds from the event will go to United Way Greater Simcoe County (UWGSC).

This is the seventh year that the event is taking place and it is a great opportunity to enjoy winter with the family and support community events. It is also an exclusive opportunity to ski at a great venue that is normally available only to members of the club.

The event will be running from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 8th and will feature free beginner ski lessons for children aged six and older, races and games, door prizes as well as a silent auction and vendor fair.

Ski and board rentals will be available at the spot. Helmets are optional but recommended and are not available for rent so participants are encouraged to bring their own.

This was quite a good season for winter sports, and winter sport enthusiasts are invited to enjoy the snow once again before spring comes.

Last year, the event managed to raise $12,000. Hopes are that this year there will be a bigger sum of money.

Tickets are available in advance for $25 each (rentals are not included) and are available online at or in person at Davenport Subaru of Orillia, UWGSC and at The Heights of Horseshoe in Horseshoe Valley.

Tickets will be also available at the door for $30. Non-skiers and non-boarders are also welcome to drop by at no cost.
