Ski mountaineer Kit DesLauriers will be inaugurated in the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame next year. Jackson Hole resident Kit DesLauriers will be placed into the hall of fame alongside with seven other skiing athletes and snow sport builders in Sun Valley, Idaho in March. The Hall of Fame induction will take place at the Sun Valley Resort on March 28, 2020.
The hall of fame executive director Justin Koski said in a news release that each member of the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019 has made a profound impact as an athlete or sport builder within their realm.
DesLauriers is a freestyle skiing champion and is well known for becoming the first person to climb and ski down the summits of the highest peaks of all seven continents, completing the venture in 2006.
