A big thank you to all our newly trained docents/volunteers. As a result, the museum is open on the weekends. We have seen quite a few guests during February vacation week - it's great meeting potential new members. Membership benefits include receiving our new 4 color Bi-Annual Snow Trail Magazine which is filled with great ski stories from around the state and special invitations to our upcoming events.
Our second annual John Christie Heritage Classic Event was held at the Sugarloaf Inn February 15th. The museum is thankful to all that attended, and especially to our business donors that provided us with a great lineup of items in our two auctions. The programs "Tales from the '71 World Cup" were exciting to listen to. Thank you to our panel - Kip Files, Don Fowler, Bruce Miles, Jean Luce and Peter Roy.
In March we will have our two "Legends" races - the Alpine GS will be on March 12th at Mt. Abram and the Tom Kendall Nordic Race will be held on March 14th at Black Mountain. The 5K Nordic race will be set up to ski both Classic or Skate - You may to either or both! So if you still feel the need for speed and want to spend your afternoon having a great time - register for these races. Registration pages located on our menu.
