The Vernon Township Board of Recreation will hold the Viking Snowshoe Invasion on Jan. 27 at Mountain Creek.

Ride the cab up to the top of the mountain and then choose to tromp out a 5k or master a one mile downhill dash. Spectators can gather by the outdoor fireplaces and cheer their Viking on as they make their way down the mountain. Plenty of hot cocoa will be on hand for everyone!

Registration forms are available at www.vernontwp.com.

There are two registration options — $80 includes a pair of TUBBS snowshoes for those who register by Jan. 7, or $30 for bring your own shoes.
