Wishing You a Happy and Prosperous New Year

The Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum and Hall of Fame would like to wish you all the best for a happy and prosperous New Year.

We sincerely appreciate your support of the Museum and Hall of Fame and hope that you'll pay us a visit in 2016.

           In Memoriam

As we look forward to the prospects of 2016, we are also reminded of the tremendous Hall of Fame members that we lost last year. They will most certainly live on in our hearts every time we participate in the sport that they were so passionate about.

Hall of Fame Now Accepting Nominations for Class of 2016

The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations for their Class of 2016.  Each year, the Hall of Fame elects up to four new Hall of Fame members, along with selecting a Pioneer Hall of Fame member.
Hall of Fame candidates must be nominated under the criteria of the Athlete, Sport Builder, Inspirational or Pioneer category.  The Nomination Committee will evaluate the merit of each nomination in order to ensure the candidate meets the standard established by the Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame Class of 2016 will be announced in April, with the Hall of Fame Induction Gala scheduled for October.
Ski & Snowboard Museum Acquires Rare 10th Mountain Division Toboggan

The Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum's extensive list of 10th Mountain Division artifacts has been enhanced with the acquisition of a rare toboggan that was initially intended for use by the mountain troops during World War II.  The toboggan was obtained from Vintage Ski World in Carbondale, Colorado.
The sled, dubbed the Sled-Toboggan Convertible by the Army, is slightly over 7 feet tall and 20 inches wide.  Commissioned for use in World War II, the date stamped on the toboggan is 6-7-45, which means that the war had ended before it became available.
The toboggan's runners extend out and lock in place, possibly for use in deeper snow, while also collapsing back into the sled for snow packed trails or storage.  This light weight style of toboggan was initially pulled by four soldiers on skis and was used to carry gear, as well as wounded soldiers.
