( Click on the Alphabetical List for members bios )
The Colorado Ski Hall of Fame began in 1977 as part of the Colorado Ski Museum. The museum was a project for the Colorado State Centennial in 1976 and the induction of members into the Hall of Fame has been celebrated each year since 1977.
The mission of the Hall of Fame is to honor the pioneers, the competitors, the ski sport builders, and those inspirational individuals who have contributed to the development of skiing and snowboarding in Colorado.
CATEGORIES OF NOMINATION
Athlete ‑ to qualify the nominee must have an outstanding record of accomplishment at divisional, national or international level of competition, resulting in a direct benefit to the State of Colorado. The athlete should have a record of continued involvement after the completion of their competitive years.
Ski Sport Builder‑ a nominee must have made major contributions in areas of organization, promotion or development of the skiing and snowboarding sport in Colorado. Normally a long period of demonstration is necessary for an individual to be recognized as a ski sport builder; however, there may be isolated instances of one action that dramatically and permanently changes the entire industry for the future that would qualify.
Inspirational ‑ a nominee must have provided inspiration in the sport, which has led to and enhanced the knowledge, pleasure or pursuit of skiing and snowboarding in Colorado. This category may include filmmakers, authors, performers, area operators, or any individual who has performed an inspirational act. Normally a long period of demonstration is necessary for an individual to be recognized as an inspirational individual, however, there may be isolated instances of one action that is so inspirational in itself so as to qualify an individual for nomination.
Nomination - An individual may be nominated after the completion of his or her achievements, or at age 40, whichever comes first.
