Mission Statement

The Vermont Ski Museum was founded in 1988 by Roy Newton, then editor of Vermont Ski News, with the goal of telling the story of Vermont’s role in winter sports. In 2002, the Museum received state-wide support to relocate to the 1818 Old Town Hall in Stowe, Vermont, and to subsequently raise $1.4M through a capital campaign to renovate the building to museum standards. In 2010, the Museum added snowboarding to its name and its mission. Today, the Museum thrives by collecting, preserving, and celebrating Vermont’s skiing and snowboarding history. The Vermont Ski & Snowboard Museum welcomes visitors from around the world to share, to reminisce, and to enjoy the collections and their stories.
