Biographical / Historical

The 10th Mountain Division, a full division of the US Army, specializing in mountain and winter warfare, trained at Camp Hale, Colo., during WWII. Experienced in skiing, mountaineering, and cold-weather survival as well as military tactics, the soldiers fought enemy forces in the Italian Campaign of 1945. Dubbed the "ski troops" by the press, the 10th Mountain Division remains the only military division recruited by a civilian organization, the National Ski Patrol. Many veterans of the 10th contributed greatly to the development of the recreational ski industry in the US and to the growth of related fields such as outdoor equipment development, and nature conservation.
