NileGuide Expert tip:
A fun, educational way to learn about Utah's Olympic Park and the state's deep ski history.
- Born in Norway of a legendarily talented ski family, Alf Engen emigrated to the US at the age of 18, reaching Salt Lake City by 1931. During that decade, he set and reset many world records in ski jumping, and played a key role in bringing ski culture to Utah. Originally a ski jumper, Engen mastered downhill racing and was thought to have pioneered powder skiing technique at modern-day Alta.
This museum is a tribute to not only Engen, but the entire rich and deep ski history of Utah. In addition to the Intermountain West Ski Hall of Fame, there are many other displays and fun interactives to illustrate these memories.
Part of Park City's Utah Olympic Park, the Alf Engen Museum costs nothing above the Utah Olympic Park.
