Published DateFRANCONIA — "Without members like Pike Industries, the New England Ski Museum would not exist," said Ted Sutton of the New England Ski Museum. Pike Industries recently made a membership contribution to the New England Ski Museum. Sutton continued, "With their help, the Museum has been able to accomplish much in its three decades of operation. Each year membership dues and donations comprise over one half the Museum's operating budget."
The New England Ski Museum's mission is to collect, preserve, and exhibit examples of equipment, art and artifacts relating to ski history and the 10th Mountain Division. The museum is located at the base of the Cannon Mountain Tramway.
"Pike is pleased to be a member of this unique alpine resource," said Christian Zimmerman of Pike Industries. "New Hampshire has a rich and extensive skiing history. New Hampshire soldiers were recruited for the elite 10th Mountain Division, athletes have risen to the top levels of competitive ski racing, and New Hampshire is also the birthplace of modern ski instruction. Skiing is a great way to enjoy winter for people of all ages and abilities."
