The Liberty Mountain Annex to the Pennsylvania SnowSports Museum is dedicated to preserving our winter sports heritage and serves to supplement the primary exhibits located at the Camelback Mountain Resort in Tannersville, PA.
Plans for the museum annex began in earnest in January 2007. Eric Flynn, general manager at Liberty Mountain, was very supportive in locating space and providing funds for cabinetry to house the exhibits. Bruce Kimball, a long time ski instructor for the Liberty Mountain SnowSports School, was chosen to design, build, and install the cabinetry. The museum opened in December 2007. It was very well received and by the fall of 2013 additional cabinetry was installed resulting in a near doubling of the existing display space.
Located in the base lodge of the resort, the museum is free and available to be viewed year round. It exhibits a wide variety of items that reflect the history and heritage of winter sports. Many items on display also serve to capture the local history of Liberty Mountain and its predecessor Charnita Resort.
The current display is comprised completely of items on loan or donated from private collections. The museum enjoys generous support from those who frequent the resort. To date the museum has on loan items from more than 15 separate individuals. The exhibits are periodically changed in order to create continuing interest for the many returning guests to the resort.
