A great boost the Archives film skiing in Utah and the Intermountain region. collection! Because the University of Utah Ski Archives deals with docu- ments, manuscripts, film, scrapbooks and other flat, two-dimensional items, a museum which deals with artifacts such as skis and other three dimensional items is an important component in documenting and preserving parts of skiing history in the region. The Utah Ski Archives believes the establishment of a major regional facility such as the Alf Engen Ski Museum is an important effort and will be a great addition to the documenta- tion, preservation, and The scope of the Archives offers a unique opportunity for research into Utah's 500 million dollar annual ski industry. The evolution of skiing in Utah can be traced from the late nineteenth century when skis were primarily a mode of transportation for those who spent the winters in the moun- tainous areas of the state. The Utah Ski Archives also houses scrapbook collections that reveal Utah's promotion of skiing in the intermountain region. Alf Engen exiting ski jumping history in the early The Alf Engen Ski Museum will provide a venue for the display of scrapbooks, photographs, and other documents housed in the Utah Ski Archives placed on temporary loan to the museum under conditions dictated by the Archives in an agreement between the two entities. Although the Utah Ski Archives and the Alf Engen Ski Museum are, and will remain, separate enti- ties, the cooperation between the two forms a part- nership which will serve well the interest of ski enthusiasts, researchers, and other interested parties. This partnership, along with the support of Alta Ski Lifts Co., and the Alta Historical Society, has already been successful in a project involving the transfer of 10,000 feet of film to video. During the summer of 1995, the film belonging primarily to the Alf and Alan Engen families, was transferred to Beta production- part of the century. Other personal collections donated to the Archives relate to many different aspects of the sport including ski patrol, ski instruction, developers and founders of Utah's ski areas, and Utah's efforts to successfully bid for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. Additionally, the Utah Ski Archives has been named as the official repository for the Salt Lake Olympic Organizing Committee records. The Utah Ski Archives is pleased to support the efforts of the Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation to create a ski museum that will serve as an outstanding educational facility. 0 Sk1 Instructors Honor Pair The Professional Ski Instructors of America - Intermountain Division (PSIA-I) honored two members of the Marriott Library's Ski Archives Program for their "service, contri- butions and dedication to the sport of skiing and the ski teaching profession." Larry Warren, news reporter for Salt Lake City's KUTV Ch. 2, and Mike Korologos, public information director for the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, were named honorary members of PSIA-I during luncheon ceremonies at the Park City Ski Area Feb. 9, 1997. The selections were made by the past president's committee of PSIA-I, chaired by Craig "Roper" Pearson of the Park City Mountain Resort (formerly Park City Ski Area) who presented the two journalists with commem- orative certificates of honorary membership. Warren has provided extensive coverage to skiing in the region for many years via his television reportage and feature stories and with articles he has written for area periodi- cals. His video presentations of the pioneering days of skiing in the region are a highlight of the annual Ski Affair staged by the Ski Archives program. Korologos was recognized for promoting and staging The Salt Lake Tribune Ski Classic Ski Race for some 25 years, for the numerous articles he has had published in national and international ski and travel publica- tions, and for his efforts to convey to the world's media the story of Salt Lake City and its role as host of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
