The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame in Ishpeming, Mich. is accepting nominations for the election of its next class of honorees—the Class of 2014.
Nominations can be made by anyone and the deadline for the receipt of nominations is April 30, 2014. The Ishpeming, Mich. facility is the national hall of fame for all ski sports in the United States.
All nominations are reviewed by a national Selection Committee with the best of those that meet the qualifying criteria being placed before a National Voting Panel of at least 100 experts from across the country.
Nominees are judged for the level of excellence in their achievements as athletes or as contributors to the development of skiing and snowboarding. All must have achieved at least a high level of national impact or accomplishment.
Athlete candidates in particular may come from a broad range of involvement in the sport as racing competitors, freestylers and even as freeskiing and big mountain skiers and snowboarders.
The rules that govern the election of honored members to the Hall of Fame reflect the rich diversity of skiing and snowboarding. They may be found, along with the Nomination Forms on the national hall of Fame’s website at skihall.org.
Nomination forms and advice on the process can also be obtained by contacting the Hall of Fame’s office via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 906 485-6323.
Membership in the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame is the highest honor awarded in the U.S. ski sports field.
Six honorees elected in the fall of 2013 will be formally inducted at a major ceremony being held in Park City, Utah on Saturday, April 5 as the concluding event of Skiing History Week which is marking the 50th anniversary of Park City Mountain Resort.
