Welcome to the McCall Ski Heritage Foundation
We are a passionate group of McCall’s long-past ski racers, Olympians, ski industry folks, a ski history author, and lovers of the sport of skiing, that have banded together to preserve, protect and perpetuate local Alpine and Nordic Ski History and Culture of McCall, Idaho.
From Blackwell’s Ranch ski jump east of town in the 1920’s, to The Little Ski Hill founded in 1937, and Brundage Mountain which started in 1961, McCall’s ski heritage is worthy of public preservation and celebration.
Share Your History
Donate a piece of memorabilia, a photograph or share stories from your own ski history.
As part of our mission, the McCall Ski Heritage Foundation strives to provide an opportunity for the public to experience the rich ski history of our community…and we are collecting that history. If you have photos, trophies & award plaques, equipment with a story, Olympic jerseys, clothing or other ski heritage artifacts from McCall, we would love for you to share them. We are also gathering memories – oral histories from the people who lived our ski heritage.
From the first area settlers who used snowshoes and skis as a way of life to the creation of dedicated ski areas like the Little Ski Hill and Brundage Mountain Resort, explore the history of our ski heritage. Walk down a timeline of some of our most memorable milestones.
McCall has produced a number of Olympians and National Team members who got there start on local snow. But even Olympians had to step into a pair of ski boots for the very first time. Learn more about the athletes and the ongoing programs working to foster a love of winter sports.
The McCall Ski Heritage Foundation is working to build a permanent display for the community to enjoy. Part of our efforts include fundraising to support the goal of establishing a museum and the various installations that will be showcased within.
The Foundation Directors want to ensure everyone living in or visiting McCall has an opportunity to experience the rich ski heritage of our community. Learn more about the organization and the people behind the scenes perserving and celebrating McCall’s ski heritage.
