Though 61 skiers signed up for the Ski Your Age event on Monday, Dec. 26, more showed up, making a total of about 80 skiers on the trails between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Overall, the conditions made for a fun day for all, said Janna Davis in a press release.

“Lookout Mountain did not get the rain that we saw in town and our groomers worked their magic as they always do so that we all had amazing trails to ski on,” Davis said.

Pete Alexson, who skied 72 kilometers, clocked in the most distance of the day.
