CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - Nearly 100 winter sports enthusiasts participated in the 5th annual World Snow Day held Sunday at a small New Hampshire ski and snow tubing hill owned by the city of Claremont.

The Eagle Times reports (bit.ly/1ZB1K41) that the event featured “Sleboggan” rides on sleds invented by Bill Herrick of Wilmot that resemble steerable toboggans. During the event, the Sleboggans pulled trains of two to five toboggans hitched together.

The Sleboggan Club of New England and Arrowhead Recreation Club - organizers of the event - were clocking Sleboggan speeds on a new course to lay the groundwork for future record speed attempts.

The event took place at Arrowhead Recreation Area on Robert Easter Way. Participants ages 4-14 were offered reduced ticket rates of half the usual $9 price.
