CLAREMONT — The 5th annual World Snow Day is being celebrated at a small New Hampshire ski and snow tubing hill owned by the city of Claremont.
The Eagle Times reports that the event features "Sleboggan" rides on sleds invented by Bill Herrick of Wilmot that resemble steerable toboggans. During the event, the Sleboggan will pull trains of two to five toboggans hitched together.
The Sleboggan Club of New England and Arrowhead Recreation Club — organizers of the event — say it's possible participants will witness the Sleboggan speed record of 35 mph being broken.
The event takes place Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Arrowhead Recreation Area on Robert Easter Way. Participants ages 4-14 will be able to purchase Arrowhead tickets at half the usual $9 price.
