This Thursday night, you can ski or ride for free at Black Mountain in Rumford.

From 4-9 pm, all skiing, snowboarding and tubing is free thanks to River Valley Healthy Communities, a non-profit organization working to make a positive difference in the health and well-being of our communities in the River Valley region.

The cafe will be open during this free ski event, but the pub will not be. Also, please note that all tubers must sign a release form. If you need to rent equipment, it will only cost you $15 dollars.

Black Mountain currently has 23 trails open with 2 chairlifts and T-bars to get you there.

They are located at 39 Glover Road in Rumford.
