“Schlitz on Mount Washington” Showing at Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum Annual Meeting
Back to Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum
The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum invites members and the public to its Annual Meeting and a showing of the 1935 film “Schlitz on Mt. Washington” at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 20, 2019.
“Schlitz on Mount Washington“, an entertaining 20 minute skiing farce is narrated by Lowell Thomas and shows where Warren Miller may have gotten some ideas for his later movies. The plot follows the adventures of the adventurous Dr. Wolfgang Schlitz who attempts to climb Mt. 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 fast paced hilarious descent through the rock hung cliffs of 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 both in the past year and over many years will be recognized.
Shawn Sullivan will be recognized with the Trailbreaker award which is given to prior members of the Board or significant Museum supporters that deserve permanent recognition. Shawn was first introduced to the Museum while working in Sugarbush’s marketing department. He coordinated the Museum’s Golf Across Vermont Tournament from 2003-2010 and served on the Board of Directors from 2004-2014.
