Visit Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum in Vail




Mention that you’re from Colorado, and one of the first questions you might field is “Do you ski?” The state of Colorado is synonymous with skiing; and Colorado has produced some of the world’s best skiers, coaches, and alpine resorts.
Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum and Hall of Fame in Vail, Colorado, showcases an educational and entertaining look at the history and heritage of the snow sports in the Centennial State. Located in the Vail Village parking structure, the nonprofit museum does not charge admission, but appreciates donations and members. Stop in any day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. to gain a historic perspective on the development of the ski industry in Colorado, followed by snowboarding.
The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum collection includes charming vintage photographs, early ski outfits, and rustic equipment. You’ll appreciate how much your skis, boots, and poles have developed.
The museum educates visitors about when and how skiing debuted in Colorado, various recreational and practical applications of skiing, and the development of snowboarding.
A tribute to brave veterans, the museum dedicates an area to the 10th Mountain Division, a skiing branch of the U.S. military that played an important role in World War II.
The Hall of Fame spotlights outstanding skiers, riders, and developers.
The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum also includes a wonderful gift shop with ski and snowboard related merchandise: ski posters, decorative items, and books. You’ll find copies of my new book, “Laid-Back Skier” for sale in the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum, and proceeds from book sales benefit the museum and hall of fame.
And you’ll find much more information on Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum’s cool website.
The museum and the website honor that special something inherent in the human spirit, the spark that inspires us to play in the snow, harness gravity, and rise to the challenges of the mountain.
