Description SNAP SHOTS FROM THE PAST AlfEngen Video - The University of Utah Marriott Library Ski Archives Program has added a rare jewel to its collection of historic ski items: A personally auto- graphed video program entitled "Alf Engen - An American Ski Legend." The commemorative 18-minute video has a production quantity of only 100, which are numbered in sequence for added value. Engen, called "The Skier of The Century" in national news reports mentioned in the video, has video Number 1. Through the generosity of the Engen family and Alan Engen, who produced and moderated the program, the Ski Archives has the cassette with No. 2 inscribed on its jacket. The program highlights the career of the storied Alf noted as the "father of the powder skiing tech- nique" and instructor to hundreds of thousands of skiers. The special edition cassettes will not be sold but will be presented to major contributors to the Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation, which is working with the Marriott Library to enhance the collection of ski history in the area. Through the generosity of the Engen family, one of the limited edition cassettes is being made avail- able for auction at the 1995 annual Ski Archives Ski Affair on Oct. 26 at the Red Lion Hotel in down- town Salt Lake City. The cassette will carry a $1,000 minimum bid and proceeds will go to the Marriott Library's Ski Archives Program. Mailed auction bids will be accepted on the Engen tape.
