The Collection

The Canadian Ski Museum / Canadian Ski Hall of Fame exists to collect, preserve and display ski and snowboard related objects; to interpret an artifact’s significance to Canada and to celebrate the achievements of individuals, associated with skiing from pioneers to the present.

The collections focus on the evolution of skiing equipment, technique and achievements within the Canadian context. They reflect not only the development and transformation of Canada’s snow sports technologies, but also foster an understanding of this heritage within the broader context of its significance to Canadian history.

The Museum has an outstanding collection of skiing / snowboarding artifacts. While skis may be the most visible element of this collection, other ski / snowboard related items in the collection include: archival materials, books, boots, bindings, clothing, journals of ski areas and clubs, maps, magazines, photographs, poles, racing bibs, scrap-books, ski-club badges, trophies, uniforms, and waxes.

The collections include examples of early skis brought to Canada by Scandinavian settlers, as well as treasured contemporary skis such as the ‘fastest skis in the world’ used by Steve Podborski on the downhill courses of the World Cup circuit.
