Marquette Mountain

Free Event

The Beaumier Heritage Center and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame are planning together a Vintage Ski Day.  This will be a great opportunity for all skiers to be able to go back in time and possibly win some prizes while skiing on some old skis or bringing out some of their old ski clothes.  There will be lots of opportunities to experience and enjoy the old times of skiing. The events will begin at 12p.m, with a vintage ski race down Cliffs
Ridge.  Racers will receive a handicap based on their age and the age of their equipment.  At 1p.m. the very popular, vintage costume fashion show will start in front of the main lodge. Throughout the day, vintage ski films will be shown in the lodge and skiing trivia on monitors in the lodge and T-Bar. There will also be displays of ski equipment and memorabilia from the Hall of Fame’s collection.

Marquette Mountain will donate $5 to the museums for each person who buys a day ski pass in a vintage ski outfit.
