Mechanical equipment is large items necessary for the operations of ski areas such as snow making equipment, lifts, communication equipment, and race timing devices. Most of this is the first timing equipment, including the first electronic eye that starts and stops timing based on motion, used in Vermont, perhaps in the United States.
Vermont Ski Areas collection contains location-specific items. There have been over 130 ski areas in Vermont; currently the Museum is trying to document the 110 areas defined as “lost" or closed. Items range from trail signs to ashtrays to chandeliers.
In November 2003, the Museum inducted the over 250 10th Mountain Division members from Vermont into the Vermont Ski Museum Hall of Fame. This collection more than doubled during the research and installation of the accompanying exhibit Vermont and the 10th Mountain Division. It includes early fleece, climbing equipment, WWII rations, medals, and archival material.
