INTERNATIONAL SKI HALL OF FAME

 

 

Created in 1983, the Legend of Honor award is presented annually, in conjunction with the American Ski Classic, to recognize an outstanding individual or group that has had a profound impact on the sport of skiing and ski racing throughout the course of their career, both on and off the racecourse.  Each year’s Legend of Honor is nominated and selected by a panel of Vail Valley ski enthusiasts, including key leadership representing the Vail Valley Foundation and Vail Resorts, with the recipient being inducted into the International Ski Racing Hall of Fame during the Legends Banquet.

The inaugural Legend of Honor award was presented to France’s Emile Allais in 1984 and the trophy has been awarded annually since.
