The legendary Dartmouth Winter Carnival is underway this weekend with EISA / NCAA alpine and nordic ski races headlining the schedule of events.  After day one, the University of Vermont Catamounts are in the top spot, Dartmouth in second, University of New Hampshire in third.

This history and lore of the Dartmouth Winter Carnival lives on in a vibrant collection of event posters.  Highly revered and collectible, original posters are increasingly rare and demand a premium at auctions such as Christie’s and Swann Galleries annual poster sales.  Click here to view an archive of Winter Carnival poster images from the Dartmouth College Library Collections.
