For fans of alpine skiing, there is no greater name than Ingemar Stenmark. The Swede racked up 86 World Cup wins, and is universally acknowledged as the sport’s all-time great. He’s a fitting figurehead to open the new Alpine Ski Museum, which he did in June 2018.
The Ski Museum is located in the town of Begunje na Gorenskem, Slovenia, a short drive from the famously photogenic Lake Bled and other charming localities. Tiny Begunje is famous for a handful of big things: a pair of castles (Ravensburg and Kamen), the home and museum of polka legend Slavko Avsenik and the world-renowned ski manufacturer, Elan.
