Bright skies and warmth welcomed the IZStyle World Tour to the Sunday River Ski Resort in Newry on Saturday.

The two-day stop in Maine is part of an effort to educate skiers and snowboarders about reducing their environmental impact. Reverb, a Portland-based organization dedicated to greening concert tours, set up an Eco-Village with booths offering information about alternative transportation and renewable energy.

The event also featured gear demonstrations and samples of natural foods. The Pete Kilpatrick Band was set to entertain at the Barker Pub on Saturday.

The event continues today from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Barker base area.
