History is a continuum, the past unfolds and as it does, the CSMus will continue to record it, to collect the stories and memorabilia accompanying them.
Opened in the early 1970s, the Museum is dedicated to the preservation of skiing history for future generations, to honouring the pioneers and those who make history, and to inform and educate about Canada’s skiing heritage.
Through educational displays and research, the Museum continues to document the profound influence that skiing exerts on Canadian history and culture. The Canadian Ski Museum is a registered Canadian charity (#119219913R0001) governed by a Board of Directors and an Executive Committee.

The U.S. Ski and 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 349 Honored members 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 Mosely.
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum is located in Ishpeming, Michigan near the shores of Lake Superior. 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 US National Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame should be located in Ishpeming. Visit the Hall of Fame and Museum at skihall.com
