Engen Museum Installing Four New Exhibits During Summer, 2013

Park City Rotary

The Alf Engen Ski Museum is installing four new, not-to-be-missed exhibits during the upcoming summer months. Plan to visit us and experience these exciting new additions to our museum.

Thanks to a very generous grant from the Adobe Foundation, our new state-of-the-art Premier Ski Exhibit will allow guests to sit on a video-enhanced quad chairlift, donated by Jan Leonard of Skytrac, and experience a variety of exciting interactive ski experiences. Treasures from the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, previously housed at Cauldron Park at the University of Utah, will enhance this new exhibit.

Another new addition to the museum is a Wii Exhibit to replace our much used and enjoyed Ski Jump interactive. This new exhibit, made possible by a grant from the Office of Museum Services, will give museum guests a realistic ski jumping experience.

Our third new exhibit honors Park City's premier ski competitor, Ted Ligety - Hometown Hero. Thanks to support from the Park City Rotary Club and Ted's parents, Bill Ligety and Cindy Sharp , this exhibit will include artifacts representing Ted's record-breaking ski career. Tom Kelly (USSA) has been instrumental in the development of this exhibit.

Finally, we are proud to honor the USA Women's Ski Jumping Team in our fourth new exhibit. Again, thanks to Tom Kelly, we will display a great collection of artifacts from our women ski jumpers. Mobile exhibits will highlight the USA Women's team as they prepare to compete in their first Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia in 2014.

 Thanks to the Park City Rotary for their much appreciated support!
