Much of Vail and modern ski resort development in the US is related to the experiences of these men and their passion for skiing. There are also videos of the history of ski racing. Development of snowboarding has... More

The history of skiing, the history of vail, one of the best displays on the history of the snowboard, the ski hall of fame and a museum dedicated to the 10th Mtn Division, a WW2 fighting force that had its roots in the mountains above Vail make a visit here a must.

Don't miss amazing and moving presentation of 10th Mountain Division which played a major role unseating the German army from the Italian Alps in WWII. They were founded and trained in Vail. One or two veterans still active and tell stories here!!!!

The museum really does have some interesting stuff. It is fascinating seeing the old skis and boots and reading about the history of skiing and snowboarding. The museum is well presented and laid out and is well worth a visit for any skier.

The history of the vail resort is well documented and accurately presented. The presentation by a veteran of the WWII Mountain Division on Fridays is especially entertaining.

Lots of 10th Mountain history. A great way to learn about all that happened at Camp Hale and the surrounding areas. Great displays of early skiing in the area.

When in Vail Village take the time to go see the Colorado Ski Museum. The old Olympic ski suits are so cool. The old skis and snowboards are too. And the history about the Army's 10th Division and how they helped win the war on skis is so interesting. The little gift shop is nice too.

Educational. Interesting. Took whole family. Inexpensive, because all they ask for is a donation; suggested $2.00 per person. Quite reasonable. Will go back again.
