A wintertime sport that kids have enjoyed for generations just received a facelift in The County.

Do you remember the exhilaration of flying down the hill with a light dusting of snow flying up around you and the thought that you might never stop? Now do you remember thinking “this is the longest hill I have ever seen” as you trudge back up dragging your sled behind you?

Bigrock in Mars Hill offers all the excitement without the trudging. Enjoy a day of riding down and then taking  handle-tow back up the hill for another run.
