2017 Annual Meeting

Public Invited to VTSSM Annual Meeting June 21 Featuring the Film "100 Years FIS"


The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum invites the public to its Annual Meeting at 5:00PM June 21, 2017 in the Museum located at One South Main Street in Stowe, Vermont.

The featured presentation will be the film “100 Years FIS”. The European Broadcasting Union put this film together to celebrate the FIS (Federation International de Ski or the International Ski Federation). It contains filmed highlights from 100 years of skiing competitions and also some snowboarding competitions from recent years. Rick Moulton of Keystone Productions in Richmond, Vermont has made this film available to us for its only local showing.

The meeting will also review some of the highlights from the past year, introduce the Museum staff and new officers on the Museum Board of Directors, and take a look at what’s ahead for the Museum. 2017 is the 15th anniversary of the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum residing in the Perkins Building in Stowe. There will be light snacks and liquid refreshments.
