Snoqualmie Pass, WA – The Washington State Ski & Snowboard Museum has opened its doors on Snoqualmie Pass.
The 501(c)3 non-profit will maintain a “soft opening” with limited hours Wednesdays through Sundays until its scheduled grand opening celebration on October 10.
The museum features exhibits celebrating Washington’s ski resorts past and present, skiing history, personalities, 39 Olympians and World Cup champions, equipment manufacturers who call the state home, and more. Exhibits, including one of Phil Mahre’s World Cup crystal globes, use modern electronic methods to tell the story of skiing and snowboarding in Washington.
The new Washington State Ski & Snowboard Museum is located alongside I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass, between the recently opened Commonwealth Café and Dru Bru Beer Tap Room & Brewery. The effort to open the museum was spearheaded by Dave Moffett, whose family owned the four ski areas on Snoqualmie Pass until 1997.
