So refreshing to find a museum free, and very interesting. Located by the Vail transportation centre. Spent a good 45 minutes looking at the first ever ski's and snow boards. Wow do I respect though peeps that wore those boots and ski's.

We mostly visited to see the exhibit about the 10th Mountain Division, which was interesting. There is information about the history of skiing and activities in Colorado too. The suggested donation is only $3 so it is an interesting diversion. There are brown signs directing you off of I-70 and on to the south frontage road east of exit 176,... More

Well displayed with so much great history. The best part it's free. Read about the legends, see the equipment and take your time. Located right near the parking garage there in the center.

It includes the history of skis, snowboards, ski clothing, lift technology, etc. as well as info on many famous US ski racers. Many awards, championship trophys, and Olympic medals are on... More

The admission is free and there are just two rooms in the museum. But there is a good overview of the history of Colorado skiing, interesting artifacts from the early days and a detailed exhibit on the 10th Mountain Division. It's worth a stop if you have an hour.
