This is a small museum but very nicely put together--just right for an afternoon while you are adapting to the altitude, or when your muscles are recovering from several days on the slopes. Make sure that you stop (or stop back) on a day when Sandy Treat of WWII's 10th Mountain Division is there to share his experiences. The gift shop is filled with affordable and pleasing souvenirs of your trip--better than most places in town! No entry fees, but a donation is suggested.

We had been meaning to visit the museum for years, but always seemed to put it off! - So we were glad when we eventually did it, and it was absolutely worth the visit! This is a lovely little museum which although it is packed full of interesting memories and memorabilia, it retains an intimate and local feel. The area about the 10th Mountain Division was particularly moving and well-described.

The member of staff on duty was friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Thank you for a interesting and enjoyable visit.

This is a great place to learn the history of skiing . Both kids and adults will like it. There are many old pictures and videos as well as equipment there.
