Ishpeming is the birthplace or organized skiing. The National Ski Association was formed in Ishpeming in 1905 and the U.S. National Ski Hall of Fame was established in 1954. For the past 50 years, beside 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.
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.
The U.S. National Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum is the only national hall of fame dedicated exclusively to ski sports 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 reflects the richness and diversity of American skiing from the early pioneer ski jumpers to today’s stars like Tommy Moe, Picabo Street and Jonny Moseley.
Medal of Honor.
