Go back in time to the early days of USA skiing

This place has everything about skiing since the 30's, clothing, equipment, Bodie Miller's Olympic medals. Truly worth a visit if you have an interest in skiing.

This museum would be a must see for skiers and is interesting enough for non-skiers like us for a quick look-see. The museum visit starts with a short introductory video on skiing and then you could browse through exhibits which chronicles the history of skiing and how it was introduced in US from Europe and how it became popular sport....

The old sky lift outside of the facility and the vintage ski's were neat to see. If you are a skier, it's a quick neat stop.

This was a free add on to the Aerial tramway and was worth the extra 15 minutes. There is interesting memorabilia, a short film and helpful friendly staff.

Took the time to visit the museum. Very interesting history of cannon Mt. Ski area and the impact of the area with the 10th mountain division. Bodie Miller is a local hero and his Olympic medals are on display. Nice ladies will answer any of your questions.

traveled with two teens and even they liked it. Short quick visit after the tram. It has Boode Miller's Olympic Medals and the original tram car from 1933. Also great history on the 10th Mountain Division and their start during WWII.
