Museum Transformation Project Nears

The coming of spring brings a great sense of anticipation for friends of the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum as the dream of the upcoming Transformation Project moves closer to becoming a reality.

The Museum's $3 million transformation involves not only expanding the current facility footprint and increasing exhibit space by 25 percent, but more importantly, to also completely modernize all of the exhibit space, incorporating state-of-the-art multi-media into streamlined exhibits, with prominence given to the 10th Mountain Division.  Exhibit cases are being fabricated to be movable, allowing for the ability to open up the floor plan for community receptions.

The transformation calls for moving the museum entrance to the west in order to align with the exterior stairway from Vail Village and increasing the square footage by expanding to the south.  Construction is slated to begin in mid-August and the Museum will reopen in mid-December.

If you would like to contribute to the future of the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum or have additional questions on our Transformation Project, please contact Cheryl Lindstrom.
