A Sea of Pink

The Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series returned to Mountain Creek this weekend for it's fifth annual New Jersey 3k snowshoe race and 3k & 5k walks. The festivities kicked off on Friday with an evening stroll followed by hot cocoa, cookies and good company at The Appalachian.

Racers and walkers arrived to 6" of fresh snow Saturday morning, which provided perfect romping conditions and allowed many snowshoers to hit the trails for the first time this season. To say these winter enthusiasts were in their glory would be an understatement. Nearly 400 out 550 registered participants braved the storm to take a snowy step closer to ending breast cancer - the leading cause of cancer death among women.

Rompers made their way to the top of Vernon Peak by way of the Cabriolet. The spirit was vibrant as first-time and returning participants dressed in bright pink boas, tutus and winter accessories took to the slopes in memory and honor of loved ones affected by breast cancer.

Over $65,000 was raised to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure North Jersey Affiliate.

Skiers, snowboarders and snow tubers can 'Paint the Mountain Pink' this weekend with a $1 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure at the Red Tail Lodge and South Lodge ticket windows.
