'Curious & Cool' Exhibit Opens at Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum

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.

Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum, located at 1 South Main Street in Stowe, VT, has been interpreting and sharing Vermont's ski and snowboard history for 15 years at its Stowe location.

For more information about the exhibit visit www.vtssm.com/exhibits.

Vermont Big Game Reporting Stations

Vermont hunters who take deer, bear or turkeys must bring them to a reporting station within 48 hours.

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department keeps an updated list of big game reporting stations on their website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com) with a map showing their locations. Here is a direct link to the map and list: http://tinyurl.com/hf7dd73 .

“Bringing your deer, bear or turkey to a reporting station is greatly appreciated because it enables us to collect important information on where and how many of them are taken during hunting seasons,” said Mark Scott, Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s director of wildlife, “and it also provides the opportunity to gather biological data at some of the locations during youth deer weekend and opening weekend of the November deer season.”
