The future home of the SNOW Sports Museum will provide a vast History of the Sierra Nevada—from the Washoe people traveling on handmade snowshoes up the mountains to 19th-century gold miners racing down on 14-foot longboards, to past and present- day athletes, innovators, and entrepreneurs. Unique Exhibit Collections will be shared from Palisades Tahoe, Western SkiSport Museum, and Gatekeepers Museum.

An Olympic Museum to commemorate the Winter Olympic Games 1960 held in Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe and the ensuing effects on regional and western ski history. Plus, we will invite traveling exhibits from other world-wide collections to augment the Olympic experience.

A Community Event Space state-of-the-art facility available to the community and visitors to enjoy films, lectures, conferences, and meetings with an extension to an outdoor deck space.

An Education Center with year-round programming and field trips to support school curriculum for regional history, arts and culture, technology, and environmental awareness.

A Cafe and Museum Shop offering visitors Olympic and local ski history memorabilia, books, posters, gifts, maps, and more. A Visitor Center with information on recreation, activities, events, lodging, dining, and trail maps.

A Distinctive Landmark Building that will fit naturally into a small footprint in an existing park and engineered to incorporate California’s guidelines for environmental sustainability and net-zero energy-use goals.
