Description Bill Murolt predicts record number of medals for U.S. team in 2002 Olympic Winter Games. ALAN ENGEN: `FOR THE LOVE OF SKIING' The 550 in attendance at the 1998 edition of the University of Utah J. Willard Marriott Library Ski Affair were there because of their love of skiing. But one's love of the sport was more evident than most. ~cerrned-ski instructor- turned authoi, unveiled at the nostalgia-bent gathering the first two copies of his book, "For The Love Of Skiing." Primarily featur- ing the exploits of his late father, Alf Engen, and Alf's brothers, Cory and Sverre, and their barnstorming ski exploits that span the 20th century, the book was very popular among silent auction donors. Alan Engen romances his book, "For The Love Of Skiing ", at Ski Affair silent auction. BILL MAROLT: "U.S. WILL WIN 12 MEDALS IN 2002" "Utah will host the Olympic Winter Games that will be second to none. That's because U.S. ski and snowboard athletes will win 12 Olympic medals in 2002, the most we've ever won ." So predicted Bill Marolt, president of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Assn. (USSA) at the 1998 Ski Affair, presented Oct. 22 by the Ski Archives Program of the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah. Marolt said, "The reason we support these (Ski Archives) types of organizations is because we believe in our youth. With the coaches and athletes we have and with the great environment here (in Utah for training elite athletes) we have the capacity to put the USA in a premier position in the world of winter sports." Lauding the University of Utah J. Willard Marriott Library Ski Archives Program, he said "The establishment of history and tradi- tion in our sports is critical. We must acknowledge the work and the effort put into these programs." SKI ARCHIVES OUTREACHES - To WORLD CUP FESTIVITIES The J. Willard Marriott Library's Ski Archives community out-reach efforts reached new lev- els Friday, Nov. 20, thanks to activities surrounding the Chevy Trucks America's Opening World Cup ski races at Park City and the visit of James Robert Lyons, Under Secretary of Agriculture for Natural Resources and Environment (read U.S. Forest Service). The World Cup women's draw party (to deter- mine racing orders) at the Kimball Arts Center was the site of an exceptional exhibit of historic Utah photos and displays provided by the Ski Archives. The exhibit included several photos of the-early days (1940s) of Snowbasin Ski Area, in Ogden Canyon, site of the downhill and Super G competitions of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Published by Gibbs Smith Publisher, Layton, the first printing produced 7,000 copies. The book is available at area book stores and retails for $29.95. Engen, a founding member of the Ski Archives Program at the University of Utah, is director of skiing at Alta. He has pledged proceeds from the book to the Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation, which is building a museum to house the multitude of ski memorabilia he and his family have col- lected since the turn of the century. The privately-funded museum, earmarked for completion prior to the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, is planned for the Utah Winter Sports Park, four miles north of Park City and about a mile from storied Ecker Hill (now the Pine Brook Estates), site of world-record setting ski jumps by his father and others in the 1920s 1930s and 1940s. The multi-million dollar museum will be the repository for Ski Archives collections, including historic docu- ments and items compiled by the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. The Snowbasin exhibit was of particular inter- est to Lyons because the Olympic courses are on U.S. Forest Service land. His visit to Utah was orchestrated by John Hoagland, a member of the Ski Archives advisory board executive committee. Hoagland is director of the U.S. Forest Service's 2002 Planning Team, which is directing programs that showcase ways public lands can be enjoyed by recreationalists (2002 Olympic Games and the World Alpine Championships next February at Vail, CO, are prime examples), without being detrimental to their delicate environmental status. Impressed with the activities of the Ski Archives program, Lyons underlined the importance of knowing one's history while developing plans for the future while being briefed on the program by its co-founder, Dr. Greg Thompson. Lyons serves as a spokesperson for the Clinton Administration on issues effecting manage- ment of the nation's natural resources and leads the U.S. Department of Agriculture's efforts to promote economic growth and envi- ronmental quality. Under Secretary of Agriculture, James Lyons, left, and Dr. Greg Thompson see what 2002 Olympic downhill site at Snowbasin looked like in the 1940s.
