The Alf Engen Ski Museum is one of two impressive anchor exhibits of the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center located in Park City, Utah. The George Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games museum is the other. Here you are more than a spectator – you’re a participant!
That’s because their state-of-the-art interactive and virtual exhibits place you in the epicenter of the past, present, and future of winter sports in the Intermountain Region, including an Olympic downhill course. That’s a great way to experience one of the most extensive collections of ski and Olympic/Paralympic Winter Games memorabilia in the U.S. The museum’s comprehensive educational component gives school children a skiing-based foundation to study subjects such as the water cycle, physics, and Utah’s colorful history.
The idea of a ski museum originated when a group of ski history enthusiasts, headed by Alan Engen, realized the need for a facility recognizing those ski and snow sport pioneers and athletes who had made significant contributions to winter sports in the Intermountain Region. His vision is now realized in one of the premier ski history museums in the world. The Alf Engen Ski Museum has recently received “Best of State” honors in the “Museum and Attractions” category.
Park guests are offered guided tours of the Olympic competition sites, featuring the world’s highest altitude ski jumps and the fastest bobsled, luge, and skeleton track. Tours visit the top of the K-120 ski jump and the starting site for the bobsled track, which also offers spectacular panoramic views of the valley below.
