Troll trolling is an ongoing activity that entices children to ski in search of Trolls. Trolls are handmade wooded figures that are placed on the ski trails. The Trolls are moved to new locations once a week and a map that shows where the Trolls are located is posted in the Ski Shop. Using a map, children must ski through the trail system to each of the Trollls.
Five trolls are hidden along the ski trails. Each troll is in a different place and each Troll carries a unique card punch. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to:
Obtain a Trolling Card from the ski shop.Search the ski trails for Trolls (trolling).When and if you find one, carefully approach the thing and use its unique card punch to punch holes in the Trolling Card.Return the card with all five unique holes to the ski shop.Collect the reward.
All persons bearing a Trolling Card with all five unique holes punched will be awarded a really big and very tasty cookie.
The Forrest Troll
(Scand. Skovtrold, Skogstroll)
Sometimes mistaken for a gnome or a dwarf, the forest troll lives in remote Swedish, Norwegian, and Finnish forests and seems to be very close to extinction or perhaps really good at hiding. According to some experts, the forest troll is attracted to its mirror image. Trolls main source of food is mushrooms, including some that are poisonous to humans. This unhealthy habit could explain its legendary unpredictable temper.
According to one recent theory, trolls of Scandinavia are descendants of a small group of Neanderthals that became isolated between ice masses at the end of the last ice age. Gradually these animals developed very special characteristics, abilities and hats.
However convincing this theory sounds, there is simply no evidence to prove Trolls existence, nor any indicating that Trolls are related to Homo Sapiens Ferus (forest Man) i.e. Big Foot in North America and Yeti in the Himalayas. This complete lack of evidence or reasonable scientific explanation only leaves two possibilities:
1) Either Trolls are a mere figment of our collective imagination with roots in a remote past representing a complex and poetic expression of our basic fears and longings, or
2) this race of creatures has simply chosen not to be discovered by humans
Until now, Trolls have managed to do this with great success.
