On Saturday, January 21, the public will have a unique opportunity to learn about the past, present and future of Colorado’s famed Camp Hale, the home and training ground for World War II’s legendary 1th Mountain Division mountain troopers.
From 10 am to 2 pm, guests will have the chance to experience living history at Camp Hale, courtesy of the 10th Mountain Division Foundation’s Living History group. Wear the gear and feel what it was like to be a 10th Mountain soldier, while also touring the Pando Valley where they trained.
From 5 pm to 7 pm, the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum will host a public reception in support of the effort to designate Camp Hale as a National Historic Landscape. If successful, the designation would protect 28,000 acres in honor of the 10th Mountain Division. Please RSVP to Susie Kincade at (970) 328-5472.
The event is presented by the Continental Divide Wilderness Coalition and hosted by the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum, with support and Living History provided by the 10th Mountain Division Foundation.
