U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum

Over a century ago, a group of local ski enthusiasts and businessmen established the National Skiing Association. Since then, Ishpeming has been recognized as the birthplace of organized skiing. Today, just fifteen miles from downtown Marquette, you'll find the US National Ski Hall of Fame.
