The Ski Heritage Center Museum of Skiing features a photographic exhibit depicting the early history of skiing in the Flathead Valley before and after the opening of Big Mountain Ski Resort in 1947; a Hall of Fame honoring the ski pioneers and local skiing legends; a life-size cutaway reproduction of the interior the Hellroaring Ski Cabin circa 1935; and a video library featuring rare footage of skiing in the valley and around Montana in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.

The museum is operated by the Flathead Valley Ski Education Foundation in the historic Saddle Club cabin adjacent to Stumptown Ice Den in Mountain Trails Park. Work is currently underway to add a 10th Mountain Division “Ski Troops” exhibit featuring the Flathead Valley men who served in this winter warfare unit in WWII, and to record firsthand accounts of surviving early-day skiers and employees of the Big Mountain Resort.
