Our Foundation

The Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation was established in 1989 for the purpose of constructing a modest ski museum in honor of ski legend, Alf Engen. With the selection of Salt Lake City to host the 2002 Winter Olympics, the museum concept was dramatically expanded to include a Salt Lake 2002 Olympic gallery and other features which would transform the modest ski museum into a winter sports cultural center. In recognition of a lead gift from the S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney Foundation and the life-long friendship of the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame members, Alf Engen and Joe Quinney, the Engen Foundation Board of Trustees unanimously agreed that the facility should be named the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center with the Alf Engen Ski Museum as the primary cornerstone of the building.

The Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation's mission is to preserve the rich history of skiing in the Intermountain Region by providing a world-class facility which highlights the many contributions made in ski area development, athletic competition, snow safety, ski innovation and ski teaching methods. The specific goals to accomplish this mission include:

  • Providing an educational, as well as entertaining interactive presentation of materials, which tie to the core curriculum of schools in the surrounding communities.
  • Providing a rich assortment of interactive displays which allow visitors to gain insight into many of the ski legends and ski pioneers who played a key role in the development of winter sports throughout the Intermountain Area.
  • Providing a vast assortment of historical artifacts which increase the public’s overall awareness of our skiing heritage.

The Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation ascribes to the focus area of equity, inclusion, and diversity as described by the American Alliance of Museums, “We believe that equity is our goal, inclusion is how we move toward that goal, and diversity describes the breadth of our experiences and perspectives.” These experiences and perspectives include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, geographic location, national origin, religious beliefs, language, veteran status, and physical abilities. Diversity is invaluable because it generates differing points of view, leads to innovation, fosters an understanding and acceptance of individuals from different backgrounds, and recognizes the contributions that a variety of individuals and groups can make.

Inclusion is about creating and maintaining an environment that is welcoming and inviting to all, and where differences are valued. It means promoting an environment in which contributions and strengths are recognized, optimized, and valued in a way that generates opportunities for adaptability, problem-solving, growth and ultimately increased success.

The Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation is committed to fostering, cultivating, and maintaining a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout its organization. The Alf Engen Ski Museum’s vision is to be the recognized world leader in ski history museums. Our mission is to preserve the rich history of skiing in the Intermountain Region by providing a world-class facility, which highlights the many contributions made in ski are development, athletic competition, snow safety, ski innovation, and ski teach methods. Our mission to preserve the history of skiing starts with the education of all socioeconomic backgrounds, races, ethnicities, and genders.

We are dedicated to achieving our goals of creating a diverse and inclusive environment and experience at the Alf Engen Ski Museum. To begin, we plan to inspire, educate, and support a diverse community by introducing a new rotating exhibit, Diversity in Skiing. The exhibit will feature athletes, artists, individuals, and more in the Intermountain Region and beyond, who are the epitome of diversity in skiing.

By formulating specific action plans to succeed in these goals, the Alf Engen Ski Museum will strive to lead locally and nationally in all aspects of diversity and inclusion practices in museums, as well as ski and Olympic history.
