We're Open

Two years of planning, and over a year of design and construction, came to an end June 23 as the Colorado Snowsports Museum officially reopened its doors with a day-long open house and ceremonial ribbon cutting.  The ceremony served as the culmination of a $2.6 million complete transformation process.
“We are extremely excited to have completed this transformation and are thrilled with how all of the new exhibits turned out,” explained Susie Tjossem, Executive Director of the Colorado Snowsports Museum.  “The new museum is absolutely stunning.  We want to invite everyone to pay us a visit and thank them for their patience and understanding during our renovation.”
Doing the honors for the ribbon cutting was Colorado State Senator and Vail native Kerry Donovan, assisted by 10th Mountain Division veterans Dick Over, Hugh Evans and Sandy Treat.  Rounding out the dignitaries were Museum Board Chairman Jamie Duke and Tjossem.  Approximately 150 patrons were on hand for the ceremony, including transformation donors, board members, construction and design contractors and the public.
