Vermont stick season ski movies, swaps, bashes and jams

Posted Tuesday, November 3, 2009
— Fall & early season, Ski movies, Ski swaps

Good news: Some Vermont ski resorts are firing up their snowmaking systems as temperatures drop again. On Jay Peak, for example, the weather service says it will get down to around 20 degrees (F) each night this week. Brrrrr. Sounds like perfect weather for making snow.

Here are a few events in northern Vermont in the next two weeks that can help get you in the mood for early-season skiing.

  • The Cochran's ski swap is this weekend and the Waitsfield ski swap is the following weekend.  My entire <link post northern-central-vermont-ski-swaps-in-2009 external-link-new-window ski>list of swaps is found in this post.
  • Friday night's <link http: external-link-new-window>Barn Bash in Cambridge, Vermont, includes ski movies, food, drink and live music.
  • At Champlain College in Burlington, they'll truck in some ice shavings for a <link http: external-link-new-window>Rail Jam on Friday night on the lawn by Aiken Hall.
  • Vermont Ski Museum presents "<link http: external-link-new-window>Memories of Stowe in the 50's and 60's: A special evening of stories" on November 11 in Stowe.
  • Vermont Ski Museum hosts "<link http: external-link-new-window>Vermonters in the 10th Mountain Division Lost in Battle," a presentation by Brian Lindner, on November 13 in Stowe.
  • The Catamount Trail Association offers a showing of "<link http: news cta-annual-meeting-and-bring-on-the-snow-celebration external-link-new-window>Skiing in the Shadow of Genghis Khan" on November 14 in Waitsfield. Come early for the CTA annual meeting, but be sure to RSVP by Nov. 6 to see the film.
