A group of Falmouth, Maine, firefighters ski down a slope on their way to the starting line before competing in the 21st Annual Firefighter's Fundraising Race on March 27, 2011, at the Sunday River ski resort in Newry, Maine. Teams of five wearing firefighting gear carried a 50-foot hose while negotiating a giant slalom race course. The Wolfeboro, N.H., fire department took first place, with teams from Livermore Falls and Bethel, Maine, taking second and third. The race benefits the Maine Handicapped Skiing program.
