Founded in 1910 by members of the Dartmouth Outing Club who wished to promote the then-fledgling pastime of recreational skiing, participants from nearby colleges trekked to Hanover, New Hampshire, attempting to defeat Dartmouth men at skiing and snowshoeing events. It didn't take long for the Dartmouth event to develop into the most celebrated college weekend in the nation.
