Last August, Mt. Holiday board members made an urgent plea for funds to keep the struggling recreation area and community ski hill operating. Today, they announce a small but substantial victory in their fight to strengthen Mt. Holiday: Tuckers Tow, a new rope tow that will aid in reduced lift lines and allow Mt. Holiday to expand its teaching, training and racing capabilities. Aided by a generous grant from the Byl family of Traverse City, the installation of the rope tow will kick off with a groundbreaking on Monday, August 27 at 6 p.m. The public is invite to journey to the top of the hill aboard the Hoxsie Farm wagon and take part in a short ceremony at 6:30 p.m., then enjoy a social hour at the Lodge. The board's next goal: to raise more funds to refresh and expand the lighting on the hill. Want to help support Mt. Holiday? Volunteer or donate here.
