Films & Oral Histories Initiative

The Museum visualizes developing an integrated electronic information system that will ultimately connect visitors, both physical and virtual, to collections and exhibits. One component is the continued restoration and digital reformatting of precious historical Vermont ski films. Another is to continue to collect oral histories from athletes, pioneers, and contributors, and to make these resources available in a format usable by the Museum and the general public.

Through a generous grant of one of the Museum's early sponsors, sophisticated analogue and digital film equipment has been acquired by the Museum. This equipment has allowed the Museum to make oral histories an important part of exhibit development and programming. The Museum continues to produce a 10 minute film about the annual Hall of Fame Inductees and to collect oral histories at the Featured Ski Area Memory Night.

The Museum will focus on:

  • Continued collection, storage, cataloging, and conversion of rare historical ski films;
  • Development of filmed skiing histories, especially relating to the histories of those persons being inducted into the Vermont Ski Museum Hall of Fame;
  • Collecting the background information and visual effects to use in film presentations.

Please consider donating 8 or 16 mm films or VHS tapes to the Museum. DVD versions will be made available to donors. For more information, please contact the Museum.
