The Stowe ski season is coming to an end and so to is the Retro-Ski season. I’ll start with a reminder of a special event next Thursday, April 22, 7 p.m. The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum will livestream a one-on-one conversation with Phil Mahre as part of its Red Bench series. The event is free and you can register at vtssm.org.
