Utah Ski & Snowboard Archives

Utah Ski Archives

The Utah Ski & Snowboard Archives are housed in the Special Collections Department at the University of Utah Marriott Library, located on Level 4.  Established in 1989, this self-funded program was created to preserve a comprehensive history of skiing in Utah and the Intermountain region.

The archives document the evolution of the sport and industry, including the history of ski competition on local, national, and international levels. In addition to scholarly research of skiing as a sport, these materials are valuable resources for research into skiing-related industries such as public relations, transportation, resorts and their amenities, equipment, and clothing.  

Material formats in the various collections include correspondence, competition rosters, organizational minutes, architectural drawings and site plans, news clippings, and miscellaneous items ranging from lift tickets to scrapbooks. Sound and visual recordings, graphic presentations, photos and oral histories are frequently found in almost all of the collections, which are distributed among the Manuscripts, Photographs, Audiovisual, and Print & Journal divisions of Special Collections.
