U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall Of Fame and Museum
The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum is the only national hall of fame dedicated exclusively to skiing and snowboarding in America. It provides the ultimate and lasting recognition for those American skiers who excelled nationally and internationally as competitors or contributors to the advancement of skiing in all of its forms. Its Honor Roll of over 400 honored members reflects the richness and diversity of American skiing from the early pioneer ski jumpers to today's stars like Glen Plake, Tommy Moe, Picabo Street, and Jonny Moseley.
The Birthplace of Organized Skiing
The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum is located in Ishpeming, Michigan near the shores of Lake Superior. Over a century ago a group of local businessmen and skiing enthusiasts took the first steps to organize the National Skiing Association thus earning for Ishpeming the distinction of being the birthplace of organized skiing in the United States. It is appropriate that the Hall of Fame should be located in Ishpeming.
Over 60 Years of Service to Skiing
The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum was established in Ishpeming in 1954. Besides recognizing America's skiing greats, it has accumulated an outstanding collection of skiing material, both artifacts and archives, which preserves and reflects the great skiing tradition and heritage of skiing in the United States. The building's architecture, represents both the Nordic and alpine traditions of ski sport and contains over 15,000 square feet of exhibits. Within its walls discover the story of the ancient Birkebeiners, see Sun Valley's first snow groomer and learn about the historic 10th Mountain Division and its contribution both in wartime and peacetime to the development of skiing. Admission is free of charge. Donations are encouraged.
