About these ratings

Before hitting the slopes, consider taking a quick tour of the Colorado Ski Museum & Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. This small facility in central Vail pays tribute to the region's reputation as a winter wonderland. The museum's exhibits focus on the development of the area ski resorts, as well as other favorite slopes found throughout the state. Visitors also learn about how the U.S. Forest Service -- particularly the 10th Mountain Division -- has worked to ensure the safety of skier for decades. Afterward, take some time to honor the people that have helped make Colorado a skiing haven at the hall of fame.

According to some recent travelers, the Colorado Ski Museum is a must-see for powder-hounds. "This place is definitely worth a visit next time you're in Vail Village," says one Yelp.com user. "There is an awesome map on the wall that shows … over 130 spots where locals used to make tracks."

The Colorado Ski Museum & Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame is open every day from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. during ski season, and 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during the warmer months. Admission is free, although a $5 donation is suggested. For more information, check out the museum's website.
