10th Mountain Division
During the early phases of World War II, the army made seven ski training films at Sun Valley, which included several of Sun Valley's ski instructors. These films were designed to bring recruits to the 10th Mountain Division, a division formed for mountain warfare. The 10th Mountain skiers better known as "The Ski Troops," pushed the Germans from the mountains of Italy and were instrumental in ending World War II. Many veterans of the brave, dedicated ski troops were instrumental in skiing's postwar boom.

Early Skiing
Ski equipment and clothing from the 1800's to present day are on permanent display. Many people do not realize that the early residents of Ketchum skied. Miners brought skis they had used in the California Sierras during the 1850's. In the 1880's mail was carried over Galena Summit to the gold mines at Sawtooth City and Vienna. Most skis were handmade of wood, up to lengths of 10 feet. A single, long pole was used for stability, for dragging to slow down on a steep slope, and for poling. Skiing was not only for work-related travel, but also used by both men and women for pure enjoyment.

Jimmy Griffith
Jimmy Griffith was the first native-born Sun Valley ski racer to earn a berth on a U.S. Olympic ski team. Although he'd never had a formal lesson in his life, he was one of America's top Olympic hopes. While training for the 1952 Olympics, Jimmy was injured in a skiing accident and died from complications at the age of 22. This exhibit honors his memory.

Mining - Railroad - Sheep Ranching
The mining of silver and lead ore played a major role in the development of the Wood River Valley during the 1880's. The silver crash in 1894 took a heavy toll on the West. Mines and smelters were closed and Ketchum's population dropped 90%. The presence of the Oregon Shortline Railroad was key to the survival of Ketchum's economy in the aftermath of the crash, and those individuals who remained, watched Ketchum grow into the second largest sheep raising and shipping center in the world.
