Vermont Business Magazine 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 in Stowe.

"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.
