Outdoor Sports Center is hosting an Opening Day Celebration to celebrate the start of ski season. They’re teaming up with The North Face to throw an opening day party on Saturday, Nov. 5, complete with giveaways, raffle items, and free waffles! The event runs from 11 a.m.-3 p.m..

The experts at Outdoor Sports Center know that no day of skiing is complete without a warm, chocolatey waffle waiting at the bottom of the slope. So in commemoration of the traditional waffle hut at the base of many ski mountains, Waffle Cabin will be on site all day handing out free waffles to kick off the excitement for the season.

Outdoor Sports is incorporating an important philanthropic element and will be collecting gently used winter coats to donate to those in need. In exchange for any coat donation, shoppers will receive a $10 gift card to use on North Face product.

Outdoor Sports is located at 80 Danbury Rd..
