The new owners of the Scotch Valley Ski Resort, Oorah Boy Zone and Girl Zone camps, are handing out free gear this Sunday. Beginning at noon, you can walk away with new ski gear without paying dime. Go pick out skis, boots and poles – the equipment will be handed out with a limit of two sets of equipment per person until it is gone.
Oorah recently finalized the purchase of the resort on state Route 10 between Stamford and Jefferson. The resort and Deer Run condominium complex will be home to a new summer camp for Jewish children in 2010.
Eli Mintz, Oorah chief executive officer, said previously that he was open to the idea of the property being operated as ski resort during the winter if someone with experience can run it as a money-making operation.
“If we’re able to open up again to skiers, we will have new, state-of-the-art equipment for them,” Meth said. “We came into an abundance of older equipment and realized we could sell it on eBay or elsewhere, but thought that it would make a nice gift to our new neighbors.”
With that said, if you’re in the neighborbood, stop by Scotch Valley on Sunday to pick up some new gear!
