The Winter 1982 Edition of  Vermont Life covered the National Snow Surfing Championships, played out at Suicide Six Ski Area, three miles north of Woodstock, Vt. 

"For the previous eight years," wrote Marjorie Ryerson, "the National Championships have been held in Michigan.  Woodstock was the first site outside of the Midwest to be selected for hosting this annual event."
