The design concepts for the Center and the approvals from Placer County and the US Forest Service have been achieved. There could be several years of construction after sufficient startup resources are obtained. This will be the major archive for snowsports history in California and Nevada. US ski history started in California with clubs, racing leagues and racing over 150 years ago. The museum will house a Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. This is a multimillion dollar project and when completed worth every penny. It will be a learning center, a repository for donated private collections, an authoritative source for historical information and a worldwide tourism attraction.
