The three-story Quinney Welcome Center is the home of the Alf Engen Ski Museum, Intermountain Ski Hall of Fame, George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum, Cafe, retail gift shop, Theater and the Quinney Conference Room.
Prior to the 2002 Games, the $10 million sports center served as the media center for journalists covering the Olympic events at Utah Olympic Park.
The building is named after Joe Quinney, often referred to as the father of Utah's ski industry. Quinney was born in Logan, Utah and educated at the Utah Agricultural College, now Utah State University, then Harvard Law School. Quinney died in 1983 at the age of 90.
In the Park's Olympic Plaza, two eight-foot bronze statutes of Joe Quinney and Alf Engen were unveiled in September 2002. The sculptures were created by Alpine artist, Kraig Varner.
