Tread of Pioneers Museum’s Winter Film Series presents Fire on the Mountain: The Story of the 10th Mountain Division
Fire on the Mountain tells the heroic and gripping story of America's 10th Mountain Division during World War II. A highly specialized gathering of the world's finest skiers and mountain climbers, the 10th Mountain Division was assembled and underwent grueling high altitude training as Germany strengthened its hold on the mountainous regions of northern Italy. Former soldier and the Sierra Club's first executive director, world famous conservationist David Brower, tells of how his inspiration was drawn from his time spent with the division.
