The Vermont Antique Ski Race
The 11th Annual Vermont Antique Ski Race comes to Pico Mountain! Bring your best old school gear and vintage outfits, because we'll be hitting the slopes the old-fashioned way. Proceeds to benefit the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum.
Sat Mar 15 2014
It’s time to dust off the old woodies standing tall in your attic for the 11th Annual Vermont Antique Ski Race. In the spirit of a long standing skiing and racing tradition, Pico will host this signature event along with the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum on Saturday March 15, 2014. With Pico Mountain’s rich racing traditions that go back to 1937 when Brad and Janet Mead started Pico, and their daughter, skiing prodigy and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Andrea, it’s most fitting that they are playing host to the event’s 11th Anniversary to benefit The Vermont Ski Museum.
Since its 2004 inaugural year, the event has been a homecoming of sorts for many Vermont-based ex-Olympians and U.S. Ski Team members including Marilyn Cochran, Bobby Cochran, Suzy Chafee, Rick Chafee, Cece Teague and others, such as 1984 Olympic Downhill Gold Medalist Bill Johnson. For years, event participants have enjoyed racing against these old pros (and sometimes winning) as everyone racing must ski on skis from days gone by.
