Sierra Nevada Ski History

Milestone 1960 Olympics

Preserve, Share and Inspire

Our mission is to preserve the winter sports and Olympic history of the Sierra Nevada Region, to share stories of the legends of winter, and to inspire generations to experience the wonder and passion of our unique mountain spirit.

We are thankful to be a sponsored organization for the GIVE BACK TAHOE campaign from the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation. From November 30th through December 14th, you can help us earn additional challenge grants by giving a little, or a lot!

Our Key Initiatives

 

Our Vision

Our vision is to establish a place where the evolution of winter sports in the Sierra Nevada and the 1960 Winter Olympics can be researched, studied, and displayed in an inspiring, environmentally beautiful building.

We will create a space where local legends can be recognized and celebrated, and where both residents and visitors from all over the world can gather and experience the pioneering spirit that built this magical place.

Our Ambassadors

Meet our inaugural class of athlete ambassadors. Working with our athlete community, we’ve developed a program that helps support their goals while working to establish a community hub for our winter sports history.

Each ambassador is a past or current local legend with impressive experience in winter sports. Connect with them on social media to show support while we all work together to preserve and share our unique winter sport history.
