New England Ski Museum is a non-profit member-supported organization that collects and displays elements of the history of skiing. Popular topics of annual exhibits include the history of skiing in Tuckerman Ravine, New England Olympic skiers, and the influence of the 10th Mountain Division on the American ski industry. The permanent exhibition shows the development of skiing as a sport from its origins up to the present day. The Museum Shop features unique products developed from the graphic collections as well as gifts for skiers, vintage ski films on DVDs, posters and prints and more. The quarterly Journal of New England Ski Museum is available free to members and visitors. In March, New England Ski Museum hosts two major benefit ski races, the Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at the OMNI Mount Washington Hotel and the Hannes Schneider Meister Cup Race at Mount Cranmore. The Museum maintains its collections in the separate Paumgarten Family archival center, which has a research library and collections of skis, films, clothing and archives. The Museum is open from 10 AM to 5 PM from Memorial Day through the end of ski season in early April. Admission is always free.
