Traditionally, the Eat the Heat Chili Cookoff and Firefighters' Race combines fiery chili and even hotter firefighters careening down the slopes. But this year, there's a twist.

The firefighters' race will now pit hot against cold with the Masters of the Hose Race, which invites snowmakers from around New England to compete against our brave firefighting teams. Then, instead of a restaurant-only competition, anyone can enter the Eat the Heat Chili Cookoff to be awarded Best Chili. Top it all off with live music and a Bloody Mary Bar from Shipyard Brew Haus, and you've got yourself one heck of a Sunday. All to benefit the Sunday River Community Fund.

And I get to be right in the middle of it all judging away!

It's all on the heels of the amazing Maine Adaptive Ski-A-Thon! Make a it a weekend of fun and skiing for some of the best spring skiing around at Sunday River.
