atThe Beaumier Heritage Center and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame are planning a Vintage Ski Day for Saturday February 6 at Marquette Mountain. 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 1p.m, with a vintage ski race on Snowfield. Racers will receive a handicap based on their age and the age of their equipment. At 2p.m. the vintage costume fashion show will start in front of the main lodge. Marquette Mountain will donate $5 to the museums for each person who buys a day ski pass in a vintage ski outfit. At 3p.m., the fun continues with a ski contest, judging the oldest skis being used on the mountain that day. Throughout the day, Warren Miller films will be shown on TV monitors in the Lodge and T-Bar. There will also be displays of ski equipment and memorabilia from the Hall of Fame’s collection. The evening will conclude with the Beaumier Coffee House Series. This free concert will feature performances by two of Marquette’s best folk groups, Great Lakes Graham & the Fiddleman at 7p.m. and Wildhack at 8p.m.
