Outside winter sports activities see large growth in pandemic

CANNON TOWNSHIP, me. (WOOD) – Skiers, snowboarders, and cyclists pack the Cannonsburg ski area in search of a reason to get out and have fun, even if it means braving the cold and snow.

Zac Truskowski has not put on a pair of skis in 25 years. An ice-covered beard didn’t ruin his return to the slopes.

“Hasenhügel was my best friend, but after that I fell, that’s okay,” said Truskowski.

Cannonsburg is seeing a bigger crowd this year as people want to get out of their homes after a year of many restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The strongest month is Christmas until mid-January. There was no end to this year, ”said Danielle Musto, Cannonsburg’s director of marketing. “People who got out of here came here repeatedly.”

Bella Ebright, a runner and gymnast, is a freshman snowboarder. She is happy that she has taken up the new sport.

“It’s a lot more difficult than my other sports, but completely different,” said Ebright. “Have fun and I’m glad I got the chance to try.”

The winter season in Cannonsburg usually ends in mid-March. If the conditions for activities remain ideal until then, the ski area could stay open longer.

“Those cold temperatures were incredible,” said Musto. “We want people to spend the spring here.”
