    The US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame is proud to announce the official ballot for the upcoming 2019 election. The 15 candidates selected will now compete for votes in August. The National Voting Panel, consisting of over 350 industry advocates across America, will vote to elect the class of 2019 from this list. Successful candidates will be inducted in Sun Valley, ID on March 28th, 2020.

    This year, over 70 nominations were up for consideration again. The Hall of Fame rules of governance allow for only six athletes, five snowsport builders and four heritage category write-ins to be placed on the ballot. Each unsuccessful candidates' nominator will receive instruction soon on how to proceed with another attempt in the next election cycle.
