Tour de Snow carries on, sans snow

Posted: Updated:
STOWE, Vt. -

Just in the nick of time the Stowe Tour de Snow got a little snow Sunday.
Organizers say this year is the 4th annual Tour De Snow, but due to the lack of white stuff they had to re-work the event. Usually a day focused on skiing, Sunday's activities were all about finding ways to enjoy being outside. Snow mountain biking, sledding, s'more making -- and even a creative dunk tank.

Event organizer Pascale Savard says no matter what Mother Nature brings, they will continue to find ways for the Tour de Snow to go on. "Because up to two days ago this field was all ice and grass, so we switched the games around and said, 'You know what, we are going to pull something together.' There are still plenty of games we can do in the snow," he said.

Proceeds from go towards SKIS, a program that brings nordic skiing into elementary schools.
