The Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation operates with the mission to preserve the rich history of skiing in the intermountain region by providing a world-class facility, which highlights the many contributions made in ski area development, athletic competition, snow safety, ski innovation and ski teach methods.
The Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation was established in 1989 for the purpose of constructing a modest ski museum in honor of ski legend, Alf Engen. With the selection of Salt Lake City to host the 2002 Olympic gallery and other features which would transform the modest ski museum into a winter sports cultural center.
In recognition of a lead gift from the S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney Foundation and the life-long friendship of the U.S. Hall of Fame members, Alf Engen and Joe Quinney, the Engen Foundation Board of Trustees unanimously agreed that the facility should be named the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center with the Alf Engen Ski Museum as the primary cornerstone of the building.
