I-90 motorists crossing the Cascades can stop at the new Washington State Ski and Snowboard Museum this December, barring construction delays.
The museum, built between a new restaurant and brew pub at Snoqualmie Pass, will have free admission. Its displays will celebrate Washington’s substantial role in ski history as an early bastion for ski jumping, night skiing, and ski schools; as home to Olympic gold medal champions; and as headquarters for businesses like K2, Riblet, REI, and Sturtevants. Visitors will find a working rope tow – something many youths today have never seen – running from one end of the 1,600-square-foot museum to the other. Read the Ellensburg Daily Record article.
