The artifacts

• Aspen’s original Lift 1 was finished late in 1946, and Friedl Pfeifer and his daughter received the honor of taking the first ride on one of the 124 single chairs. One of these original Lift 1 chairs will be on display when the Colorado Snowsports Museum reopens in December.

• The rare 10th Mountain Division toboggan, dubbed the Sled-Toboggan Convertible by the Army, is slightly more than 7 feet tall and 20 inches wide and was commissioned for use in World War II.
