This event is a townwide potpourri, with shops providing snacks, extra discounts, tastings, demonstrations, and special events on Saturday afternoons from 3 until close.
Throughout the month, people can also play Spot the (Après) Skier.
Look for a Skip Morrow original cartoon, hidden in participating locations downtown. When spotted, ask for a punch on the Après Ski Pass, available from any participating location. When a participant gets 10 punches, they can enter to win a raffle of local items, gift cards, and special discounts. While hunting, take advantage of tastings, specials, and pop-up discounts throughout town.
Special events include author Bill Mares appearing at Bartleby’s Books at 4 pm on February 3 to talk about his humorous book “The Full Vermonty, Vermont in the Age of Trump.” Local photographer Nicki Steel appears at Bartleby’s Books the following week, presenting her work starting at 4 pm on February 10.
