LINCOLN, New Hampshire ??” Loon Mountain celebrates its annual Ring in the Winter on December 10 and 11. Jingle bells will be sold throughout the resort over the weekend with all the proceeds being donated to the Angel Tree Project in Plymouth, NH. The Angel Tree projects works with local families to supply gifts for kids for the holidays. Bells sell for $5 each or 3 for $10.

Kids can enter fun contests during the weekend. The Jingle Bell Juggle will take place on Saturday, December 10, at noon and will challenge children’s ability to juggle 3 or more bells with prizes available to all who participate. On Sunday at noon, kids will have to find the buried bells in the buckets of snow.

Friends and family began Ring in the Winter in remembrance of long-time Loon skier and friend Marcia Stahler who passed away from cancer in 2002. Marcia and her husband Bob were well-known at Loon, as they could always be heard on the slopes with jingle bells on their poles.

Loon will host its annual Demo Day on Saturday, December 17 at the Governor’s Lodge. Skiers and riders can test equipment from companies such as K2, Marker LTD, Rossignol, Technica, Utopia, Volkl, Winterstick, and many more from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Those wishing to participate must be 18 years or older, have a valid driver’s license or credit card. Registration is $10 with a lift ticket or season pass.
