Woods Valley gears up for Family Fun Day


WESTERNVILLE — The 29th annual Family Fun Day and Chicken Barbecue, hosted by Woods Valley’s all-volunteer ski patrol, will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 13, at Woods Valley Ski Area on Route 46.

The day features activities both on and off the slopes, including family favorites like the fourth annual Cardboard Sled Derby.

The Cardboard Sled Derby will start at 11 a.m. in the tubing area. Sleds are built out of cardboard for speed and show, showcasing some unique, fun and creative entries. This event has grown to become a favorite for participants and spectators.  

A craft beer tasting will be held between 2-6 p.m. on the newly-expanded outdoor patio. Purchase a punch card, with a valid ID, and sample five different beers from area distributors.

The event’s popular chicken barbecue begins at noon, and tickets will be on sale beginning at 9 a.m. Tickets at $1 each for the 50/50 raffle will be on sale until the 5 p.m. drawing. 

The Woods Valley volunteer ski patrol hosts one major fund-raiser each year to raise money to replenish first aid supplies, to purchase new toboggans and on-the-hill equipment, and to maintain communication devices.  

The Family Fun Day is a way for skiers and non-skiers to be active and safely enjoy the family atmosphere at Woods Valley while supporting the patrol.
