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.

The Legend's GS Race was held on March 12th at Mt. Abram. As usual, Mt. Abram did a great job setting the course and we had 37 racers this year!! Unfortunately, the weather on Friday caused the cancellation of the Tom Kendall 5K Nordic Race at Black Mountain. 

April 4th Event: CAT RIDE UP MEMORY LANE - Tales of the '71 World Cup Races -has been cancelled. We will hopefully be able to reschedule this event next fall! 

The Skee Spree Silent Auction at Sunday River's Barker Lodge on April 18th has also been cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus.

Our Annual Spring Online Auction will be held in May. We will be updating our website as the time draws near.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff here at the Ski Museum - we extend our best wishes during this trying time and we look forward to re-opening our door to the public when it is safe.
