Join the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum and Pico for the 10th Annual Vermont Antique Ski Race
March 23rd, 2013
The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum and Pico will host the Vermont Antique Ski Race, a fundraiser for the Museum and a celebration of Pico’s 75th anniversary. This is your chance to dust off those old wood skis, your VR17s, or your Rossi Stratos and compete against Vermont’s finest. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, March 23rd at Pico, Mendon, Vermont.
This race is FUN – a chance for competitive racers to relive or to make history and for those interested in just a taste of the past to test skis. Racers can register on Saturday, March 23rd from 7:30-10am in the base lodge. Upon registering, the racer will chose to compete in one of four categories: Wood, Metal/Fiberglass, Straight, or Strictly Vintage. Strictly Vintage registrants must have pre-1975 boots, bindings, and skis. Warren Witherell, “the father of the carved turn”, will be our official. The race, a two-run slalom, will begin at 11am.
This Vermont Antique Ski Race has become “a reunion” as described by 1968 Olympian Rick Chaffee. In years past, participants of this fun race have included Rosie Fortna, Jimmy Cochran, Suzy Chaffee, Marilyn Cochran, Doug Lewis, and Cece Teague. Don’t be surprised to see other big names in this year’s event. This is a rare opportunity to share a race course with the best Vermont has produced. Commemorative t-shirts and posters will be available.
After the race, join the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum at the awards ceremony at 3pm. Prizes will be given to the three top male and female finishers in each category, and there are many special awards to be given too. Race registration is $29 and includes lunch and a commemorative pin. Lift tickets for non pass olders are available for $49.
On top of all the fun, racers and participants will be supporting the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum. The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to collect, preserve and celebrate Vermont skiing and snowboarding history. The museum is located at the corner of Vermont Routes 100 and 108 in the center of Stowe village and is open 12-5 daily, except for Tuesdays. Donations and tax deductible individual and business memberships allow the museum to fulfill its mission.
