A trip to Shames Mountain

On New Years Day, Marc Page and Loaded Sports filled a bus with 27 young skiers and snowboarders for a free trip to Shames Mountain. This is the fourth time Loaded Sports has sponsored the trip, which gives young wintersports enthusiasts an opportunity to enjoy the mountain.

“The majority of them had no transportation and normally a lack of funds to participate in this sport,” said Page. “But the free bus and free day pass made it affordable for those who normally can’t partake.”
