Title Deseret News Ski School: A Class Act
Creator Friends of the Ski Archives
Description Autumn 1997, No. 11 J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah Editor: Mike Korologos DESERET NEWS SKI SCHOOL: A CLASS ACT by Mike Korologos If you are a "gradu- ate" (or even a dropout) of the Deseret News Ski School any time over the past 49 years, you won't want to miss the 1997 Ski Affair, presented by the University of Utah Marriott Library's Ski Archives Program... and some 500 nostalgia-bent ski enthusiasts. That is because the Deseret News will be honored by the Ski Archives for its continu- ing contribution to ski- ing in the Intermountain Region the same year the school observes its 50th anniversary. The annual Ski Affair scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 23, 1997, at the Little America Hotel and Towers in downtown Salt Lake City. With an estimated 250,000 students of the newspaper's ski school since its inception in 1947, it is advisable you make your reservations early because seating will be limited, says Dave Amidon, Ski Archives chairman. The Ski Affair is the largest public fund-raising effort for the Ski Archives Program, which was started in 1989 to locate, preserve, catalog and make available to the public a professionally-main- tained record of the region's skiing history. Since its start, the pro- gram has gathered scrapbooks, photo albums, newspaper clippings, historic files and documents and has them on file along with video and audio interviews with prominent ski figures. Festivities begin with a 6 p.m. reception and a silent auction, which has become a bargain-hunters paradise. Dinner and the awards program follow. For most, the reception is a throwback to another era as diner-donors renew acquaintances and reminisce about the days of old, and not so old. Also popular is the annual video presentation produced and nar- rated by Larry Warren, KUTV Ch. 2, which showcases the region's skiing past. The S.J. and J.E. Quinney Award for outstanding ser- vice to skiing, the Ski Archives award for contributions to the sport, and the Sue Raemer Award for the Ski Archives exceptional vol- unteer are among the awards to be presented. The Deseret News will be joining the following past Ski Archives honorees: ski instructors Bill Lash, Junior Bounous, Earl Miller, K. Smith; ski area developer, ski instruction pioneer, and world ski jumping champion Alf Engen; competitors Suzy Harris Rytting, Dick Movitz, Corey Engen, Dev Jennings, Jack Reddish; the ski areas of Alta, Beaver Mountain, Brighton, Magic Mountain, Snowbasin, Sun Valley, Snow King and Timp Haven; 2002 Olympic Winter Games promoters Gov. Calvin L. Rampton, John W. Gallivan, James R. Jack, and Tom Welch; members of the Tenth Mountain Division of World War II acclaim; and Ski Patrollers of the 1930's and 1940's.
