ISHPEMING - This Fourth of July will mark the 20th anniversary since the opening of the current U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame building in Ishpeming. It was back in 1992 that the Hall of Fame was moved from its original location near the Al Quaal recreation area to a 20,000-square-foot facility located on U.S. Highway 41.
To celebrate the Hall of Fame will be hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.
The Hall of Fame was established in Ishpeming in 1954 by the former National Ski Association of America to mark the 50th anniversary of the association and Ishpeming's role as the birthplace of organized U.S. skiing.
