Expanding the Future of Skiing’s Past in the Historic Eastern Slope

After more than 30 years the museum has outgrown its Cannon Mountain home!

We have created a permanent branch of the New England Ski Museum in the Mount Washington Valley, an area arguably equal in importance to Franconia in the introduction of skiing to America. The Eastern Slope Branch of the New England Ski Museum is located in the former North Conway Community Center that was created by Harvey Dow Gibson, a giant in the history of skiing.

The long-time location at Franconia Notch State Park has been, and will remain, a welcoming home for the permanent and annually produced exhibitions, as well as the vast and growing collections.

The Eastern Slope Branch of the New England Ski Museum will officially open with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday February 24, 2018. Please join us at 3pm in North Conway for the ribbon cutting and open house. For more information call 603-823-7177, staff@skimuseum.org.

The New Eastern Slope Branch

Located on busy NH Route 16 and near the 1880 Victorian train station, village shops, eateries, and popular Schouler Park, the Eastern Slope Branch of the New England Ski Museum will be highly visible and accessible.

This building and location will forever enhance the Museum’s influence and outreach. The 4400 square foot building will include dedicated exhibit space, equipment and archives storage, a museum store and offices, small group meeting spaces. The adjacent, new Community Center will serve as overflow space for large gatherings and film showings, among other activities.
