Through the decades snow sports fashion has played an important role in Vermont’s economy spawning ski and snowboard shops, manufacturers, distributors and designers. The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum is seeking assistance from the snowsports community to help source a new exhibit entitled Slope Style; Fashion on Snow 1930-2014. The exhibit, opening November 28, 2014 in Stowe, Vermont, will document the exciting evolution of ski and snowboard fashion from the 1930s to the present. The museum is currently accepting one-year loans of on-snow or après outfits. A number of sponsorship packages and partnership opportunities are also available to support the exhibit.

 According to museum curator, Meredith Scott, “The Slope Style exhibit idea was born from the recent acquisition of twenty-five iconic ski outfits from former Bogner model, Sandra Heath. By showcasing these items, as well as other important pieces from the museum’s permanent collection and loaned items we hope to build a definitive exhibit of snow sports fashion.” 

 The museum is encouraging businesses and individuals to share one or more of their favorite fully accessorized vintage outfits from their personal collections. The outfit will be highlighted in a pre-exhibit opening fashion show and displayed for one year on life-like mannequins. Each outfit will include anecdotes, images, and memorabilia showcasing the sponsor’s association with the snow sports industry.

For more information about the exhibit and sponsorship opportunities, visit www.vtssm.com/exhibits or contact Pamela Schmuhl, Development Director at pschmuhl@vtssm.com . The museum is also seeking volunteers to help with the exhibit.

 The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum thrives by collecting, preserving, and celebrating Vermont’s skiing and snowboarding history. The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum is a 501c3 non-profit organization that welcomes visitors from around the world to share, to reminisce, and to enjoy the collections and their stories. The museum creates visually stimulating and historically in-depth exhibits, along with year-round educational programming and statewide community events.
