The museum was terrific. Small enough to cover in an hour. The staff was helpful. They explained a path we could take to walk back to the Cannon Mt base despite it being very cold and warning us it may be a tretcherous journey.

I was there today. The admission is free of charge. You can see the history of the sport and also the transformation of the equipment. Worthy to see!

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.
