"We feel terrible abut the people and children affected by the floods, we want to do anything to support our community and the children to ensure they have a positive holiday and winter season, said Kate Michener Marketing/ Special Events Coordinator at Maple Ski Ridge." "Schalmont is our School district, we have had a long standing after school program with Jefferson elementary, and have become the winter place to go on Friday nights. Our after school program and weekend programs have welcomed thousands of children as they come to learn on the rolling Rotterdam hills. We know some of our communities children and their families had some major setbacks this year, that is why we didn't give it a second thought to make sure families from the Junction could come over with free passes to ski or snowboard. This is the least we could do to try to help children and families through what they are going through, especially around the holidays. This offer even extends to families with children who have never been on skies or a snowboard in an effort to be a bright spot in hearts and minds as they battle a tough year. This is our way of giving them all a big Maple Ski Ridge hug, sending them up the hill to give them a break to enjoy an awesome winter activity."
