Description Stein Eriksen - Stein Eriksen has been synonymous with style and grace since his gold (giant slalom) and silver medal (slalom) victories in his native Oslo during the 1952 Olympic Winter Games. He also won three gold medals at the World Championships in Aare, Sweden, in 1954 in slalom, giant slalom and combined, making him the first alpine skier in the world to win triple gold at a world championship. Today the Director of Skiing at Utah's Deer Valley Resort, Eriksen was involved in the development of the Park City Ski Area (now Park City Mountain Resort), which was formerly owned by Edgar Stern, who later built Deer Valley. Prior to arriving on the Park City scene, Eriksen spent four years as director of skiing and ski school director at Snowmass, CO, and four years as ski school director of Sugarbush, VT. He also served as ski school director and owned a sport shop in Aspen, CO. From 1956 to 1958 he was ski school director for Heavenly Valley, CA, having served previously in the same position at Boyne Mountain, MI, from 1954 to 1956. In 1997 he was awarded the Knight First Class honor by His Majesty the King of Norway in recognition of his outstanding services in the interest of Norway. He also received the Pioneer Award from the Intermountain Ski Areas Association in 1998. As a guest instructor at Sun Valley in the 1950s, he became the darling of the news media - and the resort's star-studded celebrity guest list - with this unusual reverse shoulder ski technique. That status was enhanced by his spectacular forward somersault with full layout (swan dive) on skis. That aerial maneuver is believed to be the forerunner of the inverted aerials performed by acrobatic freestyle skiers today. Stein divides his time between Park City and a home in Montana. His family includes wife, Francoise, sons Bjorn and Stein Jr., daughters Julianne and Ava and four grandchildren.
