Vermont Ski Museum, Stowe, Vermont
1 S Main St, Stowe, Vermont 05672| Map |
Located in an 1818 meeting house that was rolled to its present spot by oxen in the 1860s, this museum is an inspired tribute to skiing history. It holds much more than an evolution of equipment (including 75 years of Vermont ski lifts) and a chance to chuckle at what was high slope-side fashion in the ‘70s. A huge screen shows ski footage so intense that you can hardly keep your footing. The most moving exhibit tells the tale of the famous 10th Mountain Division of skiing troops from WWII. It inspires wonder at how they held out with the (then cutting-edge) canvas and leather-based gear.
