In this episode, we take a trip down memory lane with two of the people who helped bring the vision of the Downhill 24 to life back in 2013. Will Stiles played an integral role in kicking off year 1 at Mt. Abram and transitioning the event to Sugarloaf where it remains today.

Jon Morrill was the founding sponsor of the Downhill 24 (originally, the Downhill Derby), partnering with WinterKids to launch the event at Mt. Abram. 

Listen to learn:

  • The initial conversation about having a 24-hour ski event for WinterKids 
  • Why WinterKids moved the event from Mount Abram to Sugarloaf, and what it took to make that happen
  • How the spirit of FUN and COMPETITION first began
  • Why Kittery Trading Post bet on WinterKids back in 2013 and still does today
