Summit Ski Museum

This exhibit celebrates the first 100 years of skiing in Summit County and provides a colorful look into the history of skiing. While people had been skiing in Breckenridge since they settled here, it wasn’t until the late-1900s that the town became a skiing destination.  After the end of major mining operations in the 1940s, hardy souls prevented Breckenridge from becoming a ghost town. In December, 1961 Breckenridge became Colorado’s first ski town with the opening of the Breckenridge Ski Area. Today visitors can watch a ski documentary with local experts, see vintage equipment and clothing (including "Snurfer" skis!) and learn about the 10th Mountain Division.
