Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum will be showing renowned filmmaker Joe Jay Jalbert's short film "Rivals" documenting the 1983 FIS World Cup Downhill season Thursday, June 14th at 5:00 pm following a brief Annual meeting.

The 1983 season featured many familiar names in downhill including Franz Klammer, Peter Mueller, Ken Read, and Marc Girardelli. The downhill World Cup title wasn't decided until the last race of the season held at Lake Louise in Canada.

American Joe Jay Jalbert is an accomplished skier who started making ski films in the 1960s. Long before the invention of GoPros, Jalbert experimented with filming from the skier's viewpoint. Jalbert was the skier-double for Robert Redford in the film "Downhill Racer" and filmed many of the skiing scenes. Jalbert was inducted into the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame in 2014.

Admission is free and donations are always welcome. The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum is located at 1 South Main St. in Stowe. For more information 802-253-9911.
