space
Kettlebowl Ski Hill hosted its annual season-capper Fun Day on Sunday, and there were plenty of leprechauns on the slopes in honor of on St. Patrick's Day.

“The ski hill was in excellent condition,” Judy Peterson of the Langlade County Ski Club, which operates Kettlebowl, said. “The weatherman cooperated with sunshine and temperatures above freezing.”

Kettlebowl also started a new tradition with its first annual Cardboard Classic sled race, which drew 11 decorative, innovative and in some cases very fast entries.

“It was very exciting to watch and even the racers who hadn't done something like this before were happy to see their sleds cruise down the hill,” Peterson said.

Many of those at the hill came dressed in green for the costume contest. There was also an opportunity to roast marshmallows and enjoy s'mores by the firepit.

Fun Day ends a special season at Kettlebowl with nearly 2,000 skiers enjoying the facility during a season marked by a lack of snow early in the year, some frigid conditions at times and heavy snows.

“The hill is supported by a lot of wonderful volunteers that make this ski hill a special place in Langlade County,” Peterson said. “It is also known all around the northern and central area of the Wisconsin as a great place to ski.”
