To celebrate a season of fun in the snow, the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center announces it’s traveling version “It’s All Downhill: Alpine Skiing in the U.P.” will be available for FREE viewing in the concourse of the Historic Ironwood Theater beginning January 5, 2024. Donations are accepted and will be given to Team Z Alpine Ski Racing Team.
Access is available through Downtown Art Place Tuesday – Sunday, 12:00 – 4:00 pm AND will be available when the Theatre is open for events.
“It’s All Downhill” focuses on the Alpine ski hills that have existed for the past 80 years across the region. These include the 16 ski hills still in operation across the U.P., from the major resorts to the small-town hills. Each section will tell the history of the ski area and some of the individuals who made them what they are today. There will also be historic photographs from each hill, including some of the ski areas that no longer exist. In addition, there will be sections on U.S. Olympic Alpine skiers and state champion skiers who grew up and trained on the U.P.’s ski hills.
Whether you are an alpine skier, a Nordic skier, or just a lover of all things U.P., this exhibit is for YOU!
