The original 10th Mountain Division was formed in Nov. 1941. They were the only U.S. military unit to be recruited by a civilian entity, the National Ski Patrol. Many were skiers, some forest rangers, lumberjacks, others outfitters and guides, anyone that could taken care of themselves out of doors in all four seasons. They trained at Camp Hale, Colorado, until Jan. 1945 when they were the last U.S. Army division committed to the European Theatre in northern Italy. The Division fought for over 110 days in combat, took every objective and never retreated. 1,000 of the division were lost in action, many more wounded.

After the war, the division was decommissioned and its members scattered to ski areas all over the county working in mountain management, the ski patrol, ski schools and opening new areas. To honor the original World War II division and the current 10th Mountain Division based at Ft. Drum, New York, Skilogik and the 10th Mountain Division Foundation, Inc. offer this commemorative ski. The current 10th Mountain Division is the most deployed military division since the Second World War.

The image on the Skilogik ski is of the Susan Raymond statue is in front of the headquarters building at Ft. Drum.  A World War II soldier is belaying a current 10th Mountain Division soldier, extending the tradition of American alpine soldiers. Join us in honoring all American alpine soldiers and a portion of the price will be donated to the 10th Mountain Division Foundation, Inc., an IRS recognized charity. Such donation forwards the mission of the Foundation, to preserve and promote the tradition of the American alpine soldier.    Visit http://www.skilogik.com/10th.
