Great ski museum

A must visit for any member of the National Ski Patrol. Lots of old skis, kind of like my garage, but lots of nuggets of the history of the NSP and the 10th Mountain troops.

The ski museum had a great exhibit to ski patrolling. It gave a great overview of how skiing started here and why si patrol is so important to the development of the sport.

This museum was such a pleasure to stumble across. It had so much history and information about the mountain and skiing throughout the years. It even has an old gondola you can play in and a children's play room for the little ones. The main working was very pleasant as well!

This is a quaint, friendly and interesting museum. We learned a lot in a short space of time about the history of skiing. It is donation only and has a nice gift shop.

Interesting look at the local perspective of skiing in Stowe. The museum has an interesting collection of skis, boards and other means of travelling on the white stuff. It also has an interesting collection of stories of local celebrities and sporting achievements. You will be amazed who has come out of this little town/area. Worth a visit.

Anyone that has an interest in skiing should visit here. It tells the history of US skiing and this is important to know how the sport evolved. And provokes thought of how you can imrpove skiing in the future....

Last year I purchased these unique hats as Christmas gifts and wanted more this year, but alas, they had stopped carrying this wonderful product. Hope I see it again soon in the museum store.

The history of ski fashion exhibit is fantastic. Many beautiful outfits and ties into Vermont's part in ski fashion history. The 10th Mountain exhibit is exceptional. Worth the $5 entry fee and the hour spent in a fun environment.

Small museum with interesting memorabilia. If you belong to the NSP or are an avid skier it is worth the visit. Really do not need more than an hour or so and that's if you listened the video and read most of the scripts.

We were surprised there was a not cheap entrance fee for this tiny spot and did not go past the entrance.
