An antique ski race held each year as part of the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum's annual fun weekend is set for Feb. 13.
The race has three categories: Wooden, metal/fiberglass and "strictly vintage."
The rules: All skis must predate 1975, and "strictly vintage" competitors must ski in pre-1975 boots, bindings and skis. The two-run slalom begins at 10:30 a.m., with awards to the top three male and female finishers in each category.
On Feb. 12, there'll be a vintage snowboard demonstration featuring the "Snurfer," the sport's original prototype board, which will be on display along with other old boards.
Proceeds from the weekend benefit the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum, in Stowe.
