The history of skiing in Vorarlberg goes back around 130 years. It is also the content of the FIS Ski Museum Damüls. In the past decades Christian Lingenhöle - shareholder of the mountain lifts in Damuüls - as a former operator of a sports business has built up an extensive collection of historic skis. Since his retirement he has devoted himself intensively to this activity and thus created the basis of the reorganised Vorarlberger FIS Ski Museum in Damüls.
In addition to historic skis, the focus is also on various equipment and memorabilia, clothing, photographs, literature and documents. Some curiosities illustrate the way in which past generations have experimented with skiing. A library and a historical archive are currently being built. Any information and objects will be accepted.
In the second half of the twentieth century, Damüls developed into a holiday destination that gained fame far beyond the borders of Vorarlberg. Many people have a special bond to this place because they have always returned to spend their holidays in Damüls. This resulted in intensive relationships with Damüls and his host families. Some of these relationships have lasted for many decades and for generations.
