Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum And Hall Of Fame Changes Its Name
What's in a name? Actually, quite a bit. Our board of directors recently approved a name change for the Museum and Hall of Fame and from now on, the organization will be known as the Colorado Snowsports Museum and Hall of Fame.
hanging Ski and Snowboard to Snowsports allows us to be more inclusive of all of the different types of skiing and snowboarding that we are striving to preserve and promote," explained Susie Tjossem, Executive Director of the Colorado Snowsports Museum and Hall of Fame.
"Most people think of skiing as just alpine," Tjossem continued, "but there is also Nordic, telemarking, backcountry, freestyle and ski jumping, all of which have played a role in the history of the sport throughout Colorado."
The name change will coincide with the major $2.4 million transformation project that is being undertaken by the museum this summer.
