The purpose of the Association’s Western Ski Heritage program is to raise the awareness of skiers and non-skiers alike of the contributions made by individuals, groups and companies to all aspects of skiing— competitive as well as outdoor winter recreation and fitness.

A parallel purpose of this award is to convey the positive role skiing has had in its contributions to the communities in the West.

The Western Ski Heritage Award has been sponsored by Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation since 2000.

The winner is awarded a five-day ski package for two in Steamboat with lodging, lift tickets, rentals, lesson, lunch and more.

The Western Ski Heritage Program recognizes the best effort to find, preserve, document and share the history of skiing in the West.
