Ski museum wants your input

The Ketchum-Sun Valley Ski and Heritage Museum has put together a survey of 10 questions about the museum. The board of directors is interested in finding out what type of programming the community would like to see, how often people attend events at the museum and what they can do to make the museum a better experience.

The survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/WKTVVQW. People can also send comments or concerns to museum Director Megan Lengyel at info@ksvhistoricalsociety.org or 726-8118.
