History of the 10th Mountain Division

One of my favorite documentaries is Fire on the Mountain, which follows the creation of the Army’s storied 10th Mountain division.

As part of a series on WWII, All Things Considered is running a program on the 10th Mountain division today. When they returned from the war, 10th Mountain soldiers brought a love of outdoor recreation back home to the states; 10th mountain alumni founded NOLs, and Nike, and in addition to founding many ski resorts they are generally credited with bringing winter mountain sports to the U.S.
