Meet and Greet: Chris Diamond

December 14, 2019        4 PM

Location:  Bartleby's Bookstore, 17 W. Main St., Wilmington, VT

Chris Diamond's first book, Ski Inc., had just hit bookshelves in December 2016 when shock waves reverberated through the ski resort landscape. In early 2017, the Alterra Mountain Company emerged to challenge Vail Resorts' supremacy, eventually buying 15 resorts, partnering with another 25-plus, and launching the Ikon Pass to compete with the Epic Pass. The story behind Alterra's rise is remarkable, as is Vail Resorts' counter-offensive in the form of its own buying spree, which most recently included the acquisition of the 17 ski areas of Peak Resorts.  www.myvermontbookstore.com

Simply put, Bobby Watson is one of the most important alto saxophonists/jazz musicians on the scene today. His recorded output measures in the hundreds, he is revered as a jazz educator, and many of his compositions have become jazz standards. The group Watson is best known for is the ensemble that will perform at the Jazz Center: Horizon. Watson, along with bassist Curtis Lundy and drummer Victor Lewis, launched the first edition of Horizon, an acoustic quintet modeled in many ways after the Jazz Messengers but one with its own distinct slightly more modern twist. The group is now considered one of the preeminent small groups of the mid-1980s to mid-1990s when they toured constantly and recorded several highly acclaimed titles for Blue Note and Columbia. Watson and Lewis continue as the backbone of the group. At the VJC’s performance they will be joined by venerable alumni pianist Ed Simon and bassist Essiet Okon Essiet as well as trumpeter Giveton Gelin.  www.vtjazz.org

Location:  Mt. Snow, W. Dover VT

The Glade-iator competition is a mogul skiing contest on the soft bumps of the legendary Ripcord, one of the steepest trails in the east! Competitors will show off their bump and jump skills and will be judged on a combination of time, form, line, and aerial maneuvers off one of our two jumps (option of small or large). This is also one of the best spectator events of the year, complete with sun, snow and a cash BBQ & Bud Light bar. Ripcord will be closed to the public, so the best way to get there is to take River Run from the top of the Canyon Express lift.

Spectators are invited to come hang out at the bottom of Ripcord and enjoy the BBQ and Beer Garden! Spectators must be able to ski Intermediate terrain (River Run).  www.mountsnow.com
