About 300 skiers, snowboarders and snow park visitors gathered at Ski Wentworth Saturday with a focus on setting a new world record.
The Canadian Ski Patrol held their annual Snow Angel Challenge at ski hills across Canada in an attempt to break the Guinness Book world record for Most People Making Snow Angels Simultaneously (Multiple Venues).
The record was previously set in 2004 by the London District Catholic School Board, when 15,851 parents, teachers and students simultaneously making snow angels in Ontario, and hasn’t been broken since.
Shortly before 2 p.m., the bunny hill at Ski Wentworth filled up with 298 people, some so eager to break the record, they began making snow angels early.
Ski Martock also took part in the attempt, and indicated there were 243 participants.
Saturday was the Canadian Ski Patrol’s third attempt at the record. Although final counts and the results on the attempt won’t be available for a few days, the inclusion of ski hills across the U.S. is keeping hopes high.
