Annual Meeting - Snowboarding in Southern Vermont

Author Brian Knight on the History of Snowboarding in Southern Vermont – June 6, 2019

The Londonderry Arts and Historical Society hosts author Brian Knight on Thursday, June 6, 6 PM at the Middletown Road School House (parking across the street at the Custer Sharp House, 2461 Middletown Road, Londonderry).  This program is free to the public.

During the 1980s and 1990s, the "Manchester and the Mountains" area of Vermont was the epicenter of the fledgling sport of snowboarding. With the presence of Burton Snowboards, the U.S. Open Championships and one of the earliest machine-built halfpipes at Stratton Mountain, the local population led the vanguard as the sport ventured from the fringe to mainstream. Ranging from Olympic gold medalists to backhoe operators and converted skiers, locals contributed immensely to the development of the sport. Author Brian Knight details the birth, growth and development of a new worldwide sport from humble beginnings in southern Vermont.
