Skier Statue: Stowe Mountain Vermont HGTV Dream Home
Stowe residents Chuck and Jann Perkins own this 13-foot, 2,200-pound bronze
statue of a soldier in the famed U.S. Army 10th Mountain Division ski infantry,
which stands in the Spruce Peak Plaza. They are loaning
it to the resort for 10 years. The statue commemorates the infantry's role in
winning World War II and its veterans who returned home and helped start the
U.S. ski industry by building ski lifts and teaching ski lessons.
