Titletown will transform into a winter sports wonderland on Feb. 19 and 20 for the Titletown Winter Games presented by U.S. Venture. This free event will offer community members the chance to experience the thrill of luge, curling, figure skating, biathlon, ski jumping and cross-country skiing.
Attendees are encouraged to bring bike or ski helmets to wear while participating in all activities. Participants must wear rubber-soled shoes to access the ice for curling. All participants must sign waivers before beginning activities. Waiver can be signed in advance here.
USA Luge will create a special course on Ariens Hill for the Luge Challenge. Participants will compete in four categories (boys, girls, men and women) with a prize awarded to the fastest run in each group. Participants must be at least 9 years old and are encouraged to bring bike or ski helmets. Please note: To accommodate the luge course, Ariens Hill will be closed for tubing during the Titletown Winter Games.
