We collaborated with Wish of a Lifetime and The Colorado Ski Museum to produce a special 45-minute documentary that tells the story of the 10th Mountain Division Ski Troopers and how they transformed the U.S. Ski Industry after World War II.
This documentary tells the story of the 10th Mountain Division Ski Troopers and how they transformed the U.S. Ski Industry after World War II. These heroes came back from war as pioneering individuals and helped build the industry from resort development to ski instruction. “Climb to Glory” highlights their astounding impact to our country and the ski industry, while incorporating the fun and flair of traditional Warren Miller films. This premiere will not only feature this never-before-seen documentary, but it will give guests the opportunity to meet and greet original 10th Mountain Division members. This premiere will also include live music from Denver’s own, The Moderators, question and answer session with the ski troopers, and a raffle session. All contributions to the event will go to both Wish of a Lifetime and The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum.
Thursday, January 17 at The Oriental Theatre in Denver, CO. Doors open at 6pm, Premiere begins 7pm
Wish of a Lifetime was founded in 2008 by two-time Olympic skier, World Cup gold-medalist, entrepreneur and former NFL football player Jeremy Bloom. This organization aims to spread inspirational stories of hope by granting lifelong wishes to seniors ages 65 years and older who have overcome tremendous challenges in their lives. Since 2008, Wish of a Lifetime has made more than 400 hundred wishes come true for seniors, two of them being 10th Mountain Division members, Wish of Lifetime is more than delighted to promote this premiere with The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum. Founded in 1976, The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum has been passionately dedicated to safeguarding the spirit and evolution of snow sports and their contributions to Colorado’s History. This non-profit organization oversees a statewide Research and Artifact Collection Facility, programs to preserve the history of the 10th Mountain Division, a museum that serves the State of Colorado and Vail Community, and the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.
