As the snow continued to fall, more than one hundred skiers and snowboarders took the Slush Cup challenge at Mount Sunapee Resort in Newbury on Saturday. Most participants successfully skimmed across the icy-filled water, but some rides ended with a cold splash. Proceeds went to the Make-A-Wish foundation.
