Founded in 1984 by Elmer Cone of Bovey, Minnesota, the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame (known today as ISHOF) is on public display inside the World Snowmobile Headquarters in Eagle River, Wisconsin. Since its founding, over 125 individuals representing the recreational side of snowmobiling have been inducted into this prestigious Hall of Fame. They represent trail developers, volunteers, journalists, promoters, industry, adventurers, legislators, club founders and others who have shown tremendous dedication to the sport of snowmobiling. They are the true foundation of the sport. Without them, snowmobiling would not have become the premier winter sport that it is today. Each year, a selected few inductees and special award recipients are added to the Hall of Fame. A few are well known; Most are known only in their local area, state or province. At the World Snowmobile Headquarters, they are all showcased with the honor and recognition they so deserve.

The International Snowmobile Hall of Fame was founded to provide a place for the snowmobiling community, governments and related business organizations to recognize the dedicated individuals related to the worldwide sport of snowmobiling. These dedicated individuals are the heartbeat of snowmobiling; Their goal has been building the infrastructure for the sport including communicating any barriers that may exist. With many hands and minds, they've all helped to build bridges between nature and various user groups to coincide together; Teamwork that has helped everyone respect our natural resources and the rights of those who use them responsibly.
