Polar Peak, the popular portable snowhill that operated last winter at Rosemont’s entertainment district, will be making a return in mid-December.
Rosemont Village Board members today (Wednesday) are expected to approve hiring Stackbox, Inc.to provide the equipment and services to set up the sled hill in front of the Hofbrauhaus Restaurant in MB Financial Park at Rosemont. They will be paid an amount not to exceed $190,000.
According to Mayor Brad Stephens, Polar Peak this year will be slightly smaller than last season’s that reached 40-ft. in height. This time, the height will be around 20-ft. in order to better accommodate smaller children.
The sled hill’s opening is to coordinate with the time local youngsters begin their winter break from school. It will remain open until mid-February.
Stackbox, Inc. has set up mobile entertainment features, such as sled hills, throughout the country including Fenway Park in Boston. It is headquartered in Scarborough, ME.
