The community came together and braved the cold weather to enjoy a day of activities and fun yesterday, at Mount Evergreen’s Harvest at the Hill Fall Festival.
“We started this to build community. We are a community at the Mount Evergreen Ski Hill, it’s a gathering place and more than just a ski hill,” said Mount Evergreen volunteer board member and organizer, Pam Viinikka.
Harvest at the Hill is a fundraiser for the non-profit, volunteer-based ski hill, that included a hay bale pyramid, blow-up slide, barnyard castle, live music, farmers' market, carnival games, ghost walk, campfire jam, a pie eating contest, fireworks, and of course, the much-anticipated return of the Sasquatch Bush Crawl.
“Part of the event was to raise money for other community fundraisers and groups. We all came together, everyone helped and we couldn’t do it without the community’s help. That’s what it’s all about.”
Viinikka added that both the ski hill and Harvest at the Hill wouldn't be possible without the help of sponsors and volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, feel free to send them the Mount Evergreen Ski Hill a message to their Facebook page.
