Sweetest Day on the Trails"

NORTH CONWAY NH – Wow… it is exciting to think this event has been gaining popularity for more than thirty years! People come from great distances to cross country ski, snowshoe or drive from inn-to-inn along the trails of our 45 KM network to enjoy the spectacular scenery, warm hospitality, and great chocolate treats at stops throughout the network, most located along the trails.

Known by many as the ‘Sweetest Day on the Trails”, this may be the only day of the year when chocolate indulgence is totally guilt-free! Chocoholics cross country ski or snowshoe the trails to enjoy chocolate prepared every way imaginable. Many return year after year to enjoy the Chocolate Festival, often returning with a larger group of friends each time! Trail-side businesses prepare a variety of goodies from hundreds of pounds of chocolate!

NORTH CONWAY NH – Celebrate the 27th Hannes Schneider Meister Cup Race, honoring the life of the renowned Austrian skimeister whose pioneering ski teaching brought excitement and prosperity to North Conway and St. Anton, Austria and the world of skiing at large.

Hannes Schneider was a mountain soldier on the alpine front in World War I, and his son Herbert and several of his instructors served in the 10th Mountain division in World War II. The race pays tribute to several generations of America’s mountain troops, and features the color guard and mountain instructors of the Army Mountain Warfare School of Jericho, Vermont.

The Meister Cup is more than a race—it is a spectator event with an Opening Ceremony with Color Guard, vintage ski fashion show, awards ceremony, the music of the Bavarian Brothers Band and a Sunday morning screening of an award-winning ski history documentary film. Race it or watch it, the Meister Cup has something for everyone.

If you can turn around a few gates on intermediate terrain on alpine or telemark skis or a snowboard, you are invited to participate in the race…and win! The fastest male and female finishers in ten age classes take home unique awards, as do the fastest telemark, snowboard, and junior racers. Teams of five racers compete for the Meister Cup Trophy, with winners’ names engraved on the award which is on display in the New England Ski Museum.

Competition is intense at the highest level, but for most racers the event is a simple fun run down a gentle racecourse on a day of slopeside pageantry and social events. Past racers have ranged in age from 4 to 95.

The Carroll Reed Cup, awarded to the fastest team made up of racers from the ski resort industry, honors the ski business pioneer whose early Eastern Slope Ski School provided the basis for Hannes Schneider’s arrival in 1939.

Apart from the ski race, the Hannes Schneider Meister Cup features a full slate of weekend social activities including a welcome reception and buffet, the opening ceremony, a silent auction, the popular vintage skiwear show, the awards ceremony, and a ski history presentation. Whether you race it or watch it, the Meister Cup has something for everyone.

There are many ways to be involved! As a racer, spectator, patron, or sponsor. Please see below for more information about these!
