The New England Ski Museum Hosts five Annual Events:
In early March, two major benefit races, one for Alpine and one Nordic skiers, raise funds for the Museum:
TD Bank North Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon
at the Omni Mount Washington Resort, Bretton Woods Nordic Center, Bretton Woods, NH
Hannes Schneider Meister Cup Race at Mount Cranmore, North Conway, NH
The Exhibit Opening Party in early June at the Museum showcases the new annual exhibition. This reception with appetizers and refreshments from 5 to 7 PM also includes the presentation of the Golden Ski Award to the top Eastern amateur ski racers by Eastern Ski Writers Association.
The Annual Meeting and Dinner is held in the fall at a New England ski area and features the presentation of the Spirit of Skiing Award by the Museum to an individual or organization that embodies the Otto Schniebs dictum that “skiing is not just a sport, it is a way of life”. Winners of the Spirit of Skiing award include Tom Corcoran, Stein Eriksen, Herbert Schneider, SE Group, Penny Pitou and Georg Capaul.
The Holiday Party, held in the week before New Year’s Eve, is an evening reception with appetizers and refreshments at the Museum
