Friday through Sunday, Feb. 6 – 8, two to four-person teams — outfitted in often-hilarious costumes — will compete for the fastest time as their toboggans rumble down a 400-foot long wooden chute and fly out onto a frozen pond. This is the 25th annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships at the Camden Snow Bowl, part of Camden WinterFest, and it’s almost as fun to watch as it is to participate in. If you do want to take your chances on the famous chute, you can still register your team Saturday morning from 7 to 11 a.m. Find more information at
