Littleton Food Co-op joins effort to help Mt. Eustis Ski Area open
“We can see the slopes of Mt. Eustis from the store, and it would be great to see the hill dotted with skiers again,” co-op general manager Ed King said in a news release.
In the early days of skiing in the region, many local children learned to ski at Mt. Eustis. With the growing popularity of larger areas, the local hill closed in the 1970s.
“There are whole generations of local kids growing up here and not learning to ski, because of the expense and having to get to a big mountain,” said Dave Harkless, owner of Littleton Bike & Fitness, who has been spearheading the Mt. Eustis revival effort for the past few years.
The group held a successful fundraiser in January and is planning a gala event at Bishop Farm in Lisbon this summer. For more information about the Mt. Eustis project and fundraising efforts, visit: www.mteustis.org. Members of the group will be at the co-op for “Pizza Night” on March 14, from 4-7 p.m.
