Fast and Furious: An Insider's Look at World Cup Ski Racing; December 7th

STOWE, VT: (November 20, 2017)- What is it like to race on the FIS Audi World Cup against the fastest ski racers in the world? How do you hold an edge on concrete-hard ice while turning at 60 mph?

On Thursday, December 7, on the heels of the Killington World Cup, the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum kicks off the first of its monthly Thirsty Thursday speaker series with a roundtable talk with some of the top racers in the state.
 
Get the insider's view of racing on the FIS Alpine World Cup events around the world with Olympic and World Cup racer Jimmy Cochran, Igor Vanovac-a former member of the Yugoslav National Team and a Chief of Course for the Killington World Cup- and Tucker Marshall, (one of the upstart Redneck Racers) who is competing on the world circuit without support of the U.S. Ski Team but with a whole lot of humor. Marshall will also share some of his insightful and often hilarious videos from the Redneck's training and racing. The roundtable discussion will be moderated by Bill McCollom, a contributor to Ski Racing.
A photo booth will be set up so guests may have their picture taken with an authentic World Cup crystal globe. For this special occasion, Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum brings out one of the first crystal globes ever awarded. After ski racing legend Jean Claude Killy won the first two World Cups in 1967 and 1968, Austrian Karl Schranz won in 1969.
The event will be from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm with cash bar and light snacks. Admission is free with a suggested entry and photo booth donation. For the second year, the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum will be hosting Thirsty Thursdays parties and roundtables each month. The evenings are sponsored by Collective Arts Brewing, Hetta Glogg - a new après-ski liqueur - and Vermont Ski + Ride Magazine.

 ‘Curious & Cool’

Exhibit Opens December 1 with Party

CuriousCool for WebSTOWE, VT (November 13, 2017)— Unusual and seldom seen objects from Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum’s eclectic collection will be unveiled at an Opening Party for ‘Curious & Cool’, a new exhibit opening on December 1st.

Hundreds of items, many never displayed before, have been selected for the ‘Curious & Cool’ exhibit being underwritten by People’s United Bank, Darn Tough and Ferro Estate & Custom Jewelers. The exhibit will run through October 2018.

“Each item, serious or silly, has a unique story to tell about the evolution of skiing and riding in Vermont”, says curator Meredith Scott. “We are pulling a lot of amazing things, large and small, out of our archives and are excited to show them off”. ‘Curious & Cool’ will surprise viewers with harebrained inventions, kitschy memorabilia, technology bloopers, short-lived fashions and après ski fads.

The skiing and riding community is invited to celebrate the opening of ‘Curious & Cool” on Friday, December 1st from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Raffle tickets will be sold for a chance to win a Stowe Mountain Zip Line Tour including lunch for two and Darn Tough socks. A cash bar will be stocked with craft beer from Collective Arts Brewing, warm Hetta glogg, and non-alcoholic beverages. Donations at the door are appreciated.
