What is the SNOW Sports Museum? 

The future home of the SNOW Sports Museum will be a community hub offering year-round enrichment that supports educational programs for history, arts & culture. With over 200 years of memorabilia, including the legendary 1960 Winter Olympics, will be preserved, shared, displayed, and celebrated in a modern facility of architectural significance.

A community multi-purpose room will provide space for educational programs, lectures, films, small conferences, and meetings, and the first Western Winter Sports Hall of Fame – a centerpiece of the building – will honor regional Olympians, athletes, leaders, and legends of our western wintersport history.
