Friday

All downhill: Thunderbolt Ski Runners and HooRWA present the documentary film “Purple Mountain Majesty” about Mount Greylock and the story behind the making of the movie tonight at 7 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, prior to the annual Thunderbolt Trail race on February 28.  Thunderbolt Trail is an iconic (1930s) ski trail located on the east side of Mt. Greylock, and is used to test one’s alpine skiing skills. It was also used in the 1940s to help train the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division for skiing the mountainous slopes of wartime Europe. Thunderbolt Ski Runners will share stories behind the making of the movie and how the Thunderbolt Trail is used today for hiking and skiing.
