Description LEGENDS OF SKIING COMPETITION suzy Harris Rytting o The 1947 Snow Cup, Knudsen Cup, Timpa- nogos Glacier Race-first place. o The 1948 Harriman Cup and National Championships-first place, combined. o The 1949 Rustler Cup, Snow Cup, Western Interstate Championships, Millicent Cup, I.S.A. Champion- ships, Timpanogos Glacier Race- first place. o A 1948 and 1952 U.S. Olympic Games team member and 1950 Women's F.I.S. team member. Not a bad list of highlights for a transplanted flatlander from Cleveland, Ohio, who finished dead last in her first ski race, the 1945 Alta Cup. Suzy Harris Rytting was the state's and region's most prominent female skier the last half of the 1940s record- ing top-3 finishes in the major races of the time-Sun Valley Ski Club Cham- pionships, Reno's Silver Dollar Derby, Gold Sun Race (Sun Valley, where she set a record time), Eccles Cup, Rustler Cup, North American Championships, and the National Giant Slalom. But her exploits and trophies continued into the 1950s even the '60s winning the Pacific Northwest Ski Association's Championships in downhill and slalom in 1960 and the 1969 Women's Senior A Championships at Snow Basin. Her contributions to the sport include organizing and coaching the United Alta Skiers Junior Racing Team from 1967 to 1972 and serving as honorary chairman of the Jimmie Heuga Ski Race fundraiser for multiple sclerosis. The epitome of champion on all aspects of her association with the sport of skiing, Suzy Harris Rytting is a very worthy recipient of the honors bestowed upon her by the University of Utah Marriott Library's Ski Archives Program. Sverre Engen o The son of a tool and die maker, he learned to ski on barrel staves yet advanced to the fore- front of the sport. o A quiet, humble, and private person, he lists as friends such notables as Walt Disney, Richard Nixon, and Lowell Thomas. o As a pioneer in teaching the finer points of powder skiing, he helped popularize this aspect of the sport. And more- Sverre Engen also gained interna- tional stature and brought credit to Utah as a national ski jumping cham- pion, ski resort operator and consul- tant, student of avalanche control, and as a pioneer of ski patrol work. His exploits include serving as Alta Ski School director and as the first manager of the then-new Rustler Lodge at Alta, after being the first snow ranger at the resort in 1940. He helped build ski jumps named Ecker Hill, Parleys Canyon; Becker Hill, Ogden Canyon; and Landes Hill at Alta. Sverre was inducted into the U.S. Ski Association Hall of Fame in 1971 for his "tremendous contribution to the growth of the sport of skiing." Among his credits is that of being coach of the University of Utah Ski Team when it won its first national collegiate cham- pionship in 1947. His first love, however, was film- making. Using his creativity, humor, skiing prowess, and artful photography, he has thrilled millions of viewers with such films as "Dancing Skis," "Ski Aces," " Champs at Play," "Ski Fever," "Skiing America," "Ski Time USA," and "Ski Spectacular." All those accomplishments are but an eye blink of why the University of Utah Marriott Library's Ski Archives program honors Sverre Engen and preserves his legacy for generations yet to come, to appreciate and enjoy. Corey Engen o A two-time U.S. Olympic Games team member, once serv- ing as its captain. The recipient of more than 200 trophies in Alpine and Nordic competition. Coach of hundreds of young skiers, including 11 national junior champions. And through it all, Corey Engen finds time to be an idyllic contributor to his community. Corey directed the launching of ski programs in McCall, Idaho, in 1937 and later was an instructor at Sun Val- ley under Director Otto Lang. After World War II, he served six years as manager and ski school director at Snowbasin Ski Area, where he also coached the Weber College ski team and the Intermountain Junior ski teams. He returned to McCall in 1951. Ten years later he developed Brundage Mountain. His trophies are engraved with vic- tories throughout the country-Sun Valley, Arapaho Basin, Mammoth Mountain, Lake Placid, Mt. Alyeska, Whitefish, Crystal Mountain, Copper Mountain and more. He won the Alta Snow Cup three times during the '40s and was captain of the 1948 U.S. Olympic Classic Combined team, placing third in jump- ing. He won the U.S. National Classic Combined title in 1951 and has 22 gold medals in the U.S. Veterans Nationals, U.S. Senior Nationals, and the U.S. National Masters Competition. In 1973, he was inducted into the U.S. Ski Association Hall of Fame and was named to the Northwest Hall of Fame of Winter Sports at Mt. Hood in 1987. It is no wonder, then, that the University of Utah Marriott Library's Ski Archives Program honors Corey Engen and sets up his ski competition accomplishments as a standard for others to follow.
