Snow Golf, you ask? Yes, golfing in the snow. According to Wikipedia, ‘Rudyard Kipling, living in Vermont in the 1890's, invented the game of snow golf.' It's a game that requires regulation snowgolf balls (able to be found in the snow... Kipling painted his red), costumes, ONE club (can be altered to enhance play) and a Team Bartender.

One might find die-hard Golfers playing on ice covered ponds (with tennis balls), but here in Attitash, New Hampshire (http://www.attitash.com/events.html), golf is played off a snow-capped mountain. Check out this YouTube video taken last year and uploaded from attitashman (watch from minute 2:15 on)."
With 9 holes on mountain, a golf club, skis, themed golf teams, and day-golf balls, this event is as fun to watch as to participate in. Pre Registration is located in Attitash Guest Services and Day of Event from 8 to 9:30am in the South Wing, tee times start at 10am on Spillway, $25 per team. In addition, during the day there will be live music entertainment at the Attitash Base Lodge on the snow stage, featuring the bands Duty Free, Silent Mind, and Audio Kickstand." From www.Whofish.org
