“Fun Skiing Stuff! Bode's Olympic Medals to Tuckerman Ravine Posters and More”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Our family loves the New England Ski Museum. Fun to stop by even if you only have a few mintues. Bode Miller's Olympic Medals shine and the exhibits change annually. The museum's shop is full of nice items that make great gifts. The store is on-line too at skimuseum.org . Great selection of vintage ski posters and even a scale model of a tram.

“Fascinating.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is a small museum but it is packed with ski memorabilia, past and present. We especially got a kick out of Bode Miller's beat up racing suit and his many medals and trophies. No admission so well worth stopping in!

Just a quick stop near the tram. Enjoyed the history of skiing and seeing the Olympic medals. Well worth taking a few minutes to enjoy it.

“Stop in”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

I'm not a downhill skier, but I wanted to go to the museum to see the 2012 Olympic gold medals on display. Along with the medals, I found interesting exhibits on the history of skiing in the area, in addition to western ski lodges. A friendly docent is there to answer questions. It really is worth a visit.

“Bode!”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

The history of skiing in the US is represented here in this small, but well appointed museum. The display paying respect to the area's local hero, Bode Miller, is a wonderful addition and the staff was surprisingly knowledgable about local history and the different items on display. A "must visit" if you are a skier or just interested in learning more about the sport's evolution in the US.
