The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum will show the 1935 film “Schlitz on Mount Washington” at its annual meeting Thursday, June 20, at 5:30 p.m. at the museum, 1 S. Main St., Stowe.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend the annual meeting.
“Schlitz on Mount Washington” is a 20-minute skiing farce narrated by noted narrator Lowell Thomas and may offer hints on where Warren Miller got some ideas for his later movies.
In the film, adventurous Dr. Wolfgang Schlitz tries to climb 6,288-foot Mount Washington armed with an umbrella and a well-traveled suitcase packed only with a formal dinner jacket and spirits. After a bumbling ascent, and long night at Camden Cottage, Schlitz acquires a pair of skis and makes a speedy, hilarious descent through Tuckerman’s Ravine to the base at Pinkham Notch.
Light snacks and liquid refreshments will be available and admission is free.
A brief meeting will review highlights from the past year and take a look at what’s ahead for the museum. Several people who have helped make the museum a success will be honored.
Shawn Sullivan will receive the Trailbreaker award, given to prior board members or significant museum supporters. He coordinated the museum’s Golf Across Vermont Tournament from 2003 to 2010 and was on the board from 2004 to 2014.
The museum is open only weekends until July, when it’s normal operating house kick in. Ongoing exhibits are “Peak to Peak: 10th Mountain Division Now and Then,” “Shred Vermont: Iconic Snowboarding Photos from the ’80s and ’90s,” “Slope Style — Fashion on Snow: A ski fashion retrospective 1930 to 2014,” “Kick & Glide: Vermont’s impact on Nordic Skiing,” and a National Ski Patrol exhibit: “It All Started in Stowe.”
