Title Tales from the Archives
Creator Friends of the Ski Archives
Description Beaver Mountain, Logan, Utah Tales from the Archives November, members of the family and friends finally had the top terminal complete and the 6,600 feet of cable in place. We were tightening the cable to get it ready to splice, and we gave it one too many pulls with the block and tackle. The cable was pulled off the bull wheel at the top of the mountain. About that time someone coming up the mountain told us that snow sliding off the roof of the lodge had knocked the chimney down. We thought that was enough for one day." In 1951 the Seeholzers installed a new T-bar lift at Logan Canyon's Beaver Mountain Ski Area. In a story now on file with the University of Utah Marriott Library's Ski Archives Program, Harry Seeholzer recalled one extremely challenging day: "The shiv wheels for the towers arrived late that year and by time the towers were ready to receive the cable there was twenty inches of snow on the ground. On this particular day in *** In his oral history contribution to the Utah Ski Archives, long-time Snowbasin ski school director Earl Miller recalls how he came to know Alf Engen, the legendary ski jumper, area developer, and "Father of Powder Skiing." "My interest in skiing got a boost when the war started. My father was a warehouse foreman at the General Defense Depot in Ogden and Alf began working for the depot warehouse that stored equipment for the mountain troops. It was there that my father became acquainted with Alf and told him of my interest in skiing. Soon Alf began sending things home with my father to give to me. They were items that Alf had developed for his own use such as waxes and lacquers for the bottom of the skis. Soon afterward, I met him for the first time and we've become close friends."
