Taste of Tennessee Ski Week approaches

KILLINGTON-For the past 20 years Lynchburg, Tennessee has invaded The Beast of the East and brought the "flavor" of the south here to Central Vermont. This year that tradition continues as Jack Daniel's and all of his friends come to Killington for the 21st Annual Taste of Tennessee Ski Week, Feb. 23-26.

It is a week filled with special Jack Daniel's sponsored events, contests, prizes, games and excitement and almost every restaurant and tavern on the mountain gets "in the spirit" when Jack stops by for his traditional visit.

From the Jack Daniel's Winter Olympics at the Grist Mill pond, to après-ski "iPad Jack Attack" parties, Jack Daniel's will be hopping around Killington.

The highlights of the week include the restaurant contests which include the "Dine Around Town" entrée contest, the "Paint the Town Jack" statue decorating contest and the Killington Bartender's Drink Competition at Outback Pizza where contestants vie for the top spot by incorporating Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey into their creative and delicious drink recipes.

A complete calendar of the week's events will be listed in the Mountain Times next week and can also be found posted at most restaurants in Killington. Event participants must be at least 21 years old.
