Description Corey Engen Will Add Prestigious Quinney Award To a Lifetime of Accomplishment By Joseph Arave A decade ago at the 1992 Ski Affair, Corey Engen was among six honorees who were recognized for their significant achievements as competitive skiers. Now in 2002, because of his many contributions to the sport of skiing that go far beyond successes in competition, the Quinney Family and the J. Willard Marriott Library Utah Ski Archives will honor Corey Engen with the prestigious S.J. & J.E. Quinney Award. Corey, the youngest of the famous Engen Brothers, immigrated to the United States with his mother in 1933, joining older brothers Alf and Sverre who came to America in 1929. Corey, though still a teenager, was immediately recruited by the Utah Ski Club and began entering jumping tournaments winning his class on many occasions. In 1934, Corey out-jumped well-known skier Calmar Andreasen, a major accomplishment for anyone with amateur status. Corey went on to gain success in Alpine and Nordic ski competitions, winning hundreds of trophies and rnedals. He won the Alta Snow Cup race three times during the 1940s. He also triumphed in many races in places like Sun Valley, Aspen, Mammoth Mountain, Lake Placid, and Mt. Alyeska among others. Corey was a two-time Olympian and was named captain of the 1948 team. In 1951, he won the U.S. National Classic Combined competition. Corey later went on to win 22 gold medals in the U.S. Veterans Nationals, U.S. Senior QOre En en Nationals, and the U.S. National Masters competitions. With all of his competitive accomplishments, Corey Engen is even more well known for his contributions to the sport of skiing and the ski community as a coach. He has tutored hundreds of young skiers including eleven national junior champions. In recognition of his contribution to the youth of the state, Corey was named "Mr. Idaho" by the state's Governor. During the late 1940s and early 50s, Corey directed the ski school at Snowbasin until he moved his family to Idaho in 1953. There, he developed Brundage Mountain in McCall, Idaho with partners Warren Brown and J.R. Simplot, and directed its ski school as well. In 1973, Corey was inducted into the U.S. Ski Association Hall of Fame and was named to the Northwest Hall of Fame of Winter Sports in 1987. Corey Engen, often referred to as "Baby Brother" by Alf and Sverre, is a giant of a man in the eyes of Alta, Utah Photo Collection S.J. and J.E. Qitinney Award The S.
