Ski Museum of Maine gets grant to preserve WSKI video tapes

KINGFIELD — The Ski Museum of Maine recently received a $1,000 grant from the H. King & Jean Cummings Charitable Fund of the Maine Community Foundation to preserver WSKI video tapes.
WSKI is Sugarloaf’s television channel, and since 2010 has been an affiliate of Outside Television, a national resort-based TV network. It began in the early 1970s as a private TV channel for residents of the resort. The tapes will become part of the museum’s collection and can be shared online.
The Ski Museum of Maine is a 501 (c3) charitable organization established in 1995 to celebrate and preserve Maine’s ski history and heritage. SMOM exhibits artifacts, photographs, artworks and documents at its location in Kingfield, maintains a permanent satellite exhibit at the Museums of the Bethel Historical Society’s Robinson House, offers a travelling exhibit of the Maine Winter Olympians and hosts social events and activities throughout the year.
