“Very interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

If you are a history buff you will really enjoy this museum. It recounts how Vail was started by a 10 th Mountain soldier and has a whole room dedicated to these brave men. It also boasts the information, clothing, skis, and snowboards of famous athletes. Also has a great gift shop for picking up historical type souvenirs.

“worth your time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

If your a skier or someone who appreciates the industry this is your place. The displays about the 10th mountain division are great. It is interesting to see how skiing has changed over the years. Surprisingly my kids even liked the place. I think I found my neon jacket from the 90's. Greatly enjoyed this museum.

“Take the time to see it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

If you are a skier with any interest of ski history this is the best of the 3 ski museums I have been to. If I had known that it was going to be that good I would have planned for more time there.

“If you're into skiing ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Interesting local history with a myriad of donated relics ... anyone missing that fluro and silver ski gear from the 70's and 80's? You can waste an hour or two and pick up a neat souvenir. They show a movie every so often, but we had to get back down the hill before the roads got too icy. Free to enter so you may as well check it out if you are in the area, love ski, board and local history and have time to spill. If you don't know your ski history icons you will find out about them here.
