Broomfield Veterans Museum Film Showing "Climb to Glory" Legacy of the 10th Mountain Ski Troopers

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Produced by Warren Miller Entertainment in partnership with the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum, Climb To Glory tells the story of the 10th Mountain Division Ski Troopers and how they championed the U.S. Ski Industry following World War II. The Mountain Division came into existence on July 13, 1943 at an Army base in the Colorado Rockies known as “Camp Hale”. The Division trained at 9,200 feet above sea level and honed their skills to fight and survive under the most brutal mountain conditions. After participating in a major turning point in the War, these heroes returned home from Italy as pioneering individuals and helped expand skiing into a lifestyle sport with ski resort development, product innovation, instruction and everything in between. Narrated by Olympian and future Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame inductee Jeremy Bloom and inspired by Warren Miller Athlete Chris Anthony, Climb to Glory highlights the 10th Mountain Division Vets’ astounding impact on our country and
