Skiing Heritage Week 2012 comes to Seattle in April. Four nights of events are open to the public with film showings, a party, and inducting new members into the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.
The International Skiing History Association (ISHA) is bringing its Skiing Heritage Week event to the Pacific Northwest, April 8-14, 2012. The schedule includes stops to ski or ride at Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood Meadows, White Pass, Stevens Pass, Crystal Mountain, and the Summit at Snoqualmie.
Several free events for Skiing Heritage Week are scheduled April 11-13, 2012 at the Bell Harbor-Bay Auditorium in Seattle. The Ishpeming International Film Festival takes place April 11 with presenting the Jerry’s, the ISHA film awards. Ski Heil will also have its American premier. The film festival continues April 12 with the showing of the best films for this year.
For a bit of ski nostalgia, here's a preview of Gliding Through Time, from the International Skiing History Association:
The free Skiing Heritage Week events culminate April 13 with the Snow Blast party. The party — for those 21 years and older — will celebrate the 50th anniversary of K2, the ski company whose roots are in Vashon Island, across the Sound from Seattle.
Skiing Heritage Week ends with induction ceremony for this year’s U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame members. The ceremony is scheduled in Elliott Hall at Bell Harbor in Seattle. The event requires tickets: $300 for individuals, $500 for couples, $2,500 for a table seating 10, and $4,000 for a corporate table. Tickets can be purchased here.
