Hannes Schneider Meister Cup

Get out the vintage skiwear. Saturday, March 3rd Cranmore Mountain will be hosting the annual Hannes Schneider Meister Cup. If you can ski around a few gates on intermediate terrain, you are qualified to participate in this unique race honoring the founding father of ski instruction, Austrian Hannes Schneider (at left executing his famous jump turn.)

While you are having a blast on the hill your participation will be helping to fund the collection and conservation of our skiing heritage exhibited at the New England Ski Museum located at the foot of Cannon Mountain in Franconia, NH. This important museum offers an archive of skiing history with colorful exhibits, an extensive library, and growing collections of ski-related artifacts.

Registration closes March 1, 2011 so get online and visit the New England Ski Museum website or call the Ski Museum at (800) 639-4181. Download the event brochure here.
