Ten more people will be added to the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club’s Hall of Fame during a banquet Saturday night at the Grand Teton Ballroom at Snow King Resort.

The 10 ski and snowboard champs who will be inducted into the club’s second class are Andy Chambers, Bill Saunders, Dallas Dunlap Robertson, Karen Budge Eaton, Nancy Bell Johnstone, Neil Rafferty, Peter Ashley, Rob Kingwill, Walt Berling and Willie Neal.

Festivities include skiing with ski club athletes, staff, alumni and Hall of Famers from 2 to 4 p.m. An apres ski and museum tour will take place 4 to 5 p.m. The first two events are free and open to the public.

Cocktails at Hayden’s Post will be served from 5 to 6 p.m. A seated dinner will be held at 6 p.m. in the Grand Teton Ballroom followed by the induction ceremony at 6:30 p.m.

The new names will nearly double the Hall of Fame roster — the first class was inducted in 2014 as part of the Ski Club’s 75th anniversary — to 22. The 10 new members join Bill Ashley, Betty Woolsey, Pepi Stiegler, John Curtis, Harry Baxter, Pete Karns, Bill Briggs, Tommy Moe, Resi Stiegler, Travis Rice, Martin Hagen and Erich Wilbrecht.

Hall of Famers are nominated then selected by a Ski Club-appointed committee. To be considered nominees must have notable ski or snowboarding achievements as a competitor, innovator, pioneer or inspiration. Nominees do not have to be members of the Ski Club but must have made a significant contribution to it.
