Mt. Mansfield Ski Patrol: 75 Years (a benefit for Gary Sudol)

Tomorrow night, at the Vermont Ski Museum, historian Brian Lindner will present the history of the Mt. Mansfield Ski Patrol, which is the oldest and probably the first ski patrol in the United States. This year the MMSP is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Lindner's presentation will cover the founding of the patrol and the often colorful story, with dozens of old photographs, of many of its legendary members. Proceeds will be applied to medical bills accrued by long-time Mt. Mansfield Ski Patroller, Gary Sudol, who has recently been diagnosed with a Glioblastoma grade 4 primary brain tumor. (Support for Gary and his family here.)

When: Saturday, March 14
Time: 7 p.m.
Where: Vermont Ski Museum - One South Main Street, Stowe
More Info: 802-253-9911
Donation: $10

  1. Just like the ones that you used to ski a Stowe Mountain is home to the infamous Front Four (Starr, Goat, National and Lift Line) which are arguably the most exciting runs in the East. For the novice skiers and snowboarders, there's an entire mountain (Spruce Peak) criss-crossed with easygoing runs.
