Description ¦it DEAN ROBERTS - Dean's introduction to a magnificent skiing career began simply by jumping into it. Early on Dean skied at Lead Draw, near Pocatello, Idaho, where a rope tow led to a 40-meter jump. While in grade school, he and his pals took their skis to school so they could "fly" off of the 12-15 ski jumps they would build between their homes and school. In 1944, while an eighth grader, his family moved to Ogden where he headed for Snow Basin. His first day on those ski slopes startled him, "Everyone was turning on their skis and that was the objective," he recalls. Not only could he not turn his skis, but he had never been exposed to skiing where turning was necessary. Once he learned that skill, his skiing talents skyrocketed: Weber College and University of Utah Ski Teams; ski instructor at Snow Basin 1957-60; at Brighton in 1960-63; and at Solitude Mountain Resort, where he was co-director of the Mt. Empire Ski School. He directed the Solitude Ski School from 1969 - 94. He is a lifetime member of PSIA and PSIAI and among the first 100 to join the PSIA. He currently is director of skiing at Solitude. S, J. QUINNEY AWARD 2003 ZANE DOYLE On February 17, 1916, Zane A. Doyle was born to Michael and Zepher Smith Doyle in Ogden, Utah. The family moved to Salt Lake City, where Zane attended Columbus Elementary, Irving junior 1 1 and then Granite High School. In 1937, he married Thelma Jensen. Two years later lie began skiing with friends in Lambs Canyon. In \ 943, Zane convinced Thelma to let him purchase a T-bar from Kay Smith. was quite a change of occupation from butcher at Hill Field to T-bar operator on - ! War II. "The early years ai >n were a struggle, Zane worked nights at ! oad up Big Cottonwood Canyon was plowed only as far as the Brighton store, When the United States Special Forces began to train in the area, they plowed the road all the way to the 'I-bar. The cost to ski? Ten cents per ride. Zane began adding and changing things at Brighton in 1947. I le extended the 1 -bar to the top of the current Majestic lift and built a second T-bar to the top of the second face of Majestic in 1 948 which increased uphill capacity to 750 people per hour. The Intermountain West had its first double chair lift thanks to Zane Doyle when he built the Majestic chair in 1948. He then built a roller and began to pack the slopes. Zane added a second double chair in 1958, the Mary Chairlift. In 1963, the purchase of Brighton Recreation gave him a single chair lift running up Mt. Millicent. In 1968, Evergreen was added and in 1974 the Millicent single chair was replaced and extended with a double chair, l1*^1) brought night skiing to Brighton and three years later the Majestic lift was rebuilt. In 1 C)N4 he oversaw the completion of Snake Creek triple chair. Zane retired as head of Brighton Ski Bowl in 1984 when Brighton Resort was purchased by Boyle USA Resorts. Zanes stubbornness gave Brighton Ski Resort to the Intermountain Region. His vision and his love of skiing has endured at the head of Big Cottonwood Canyon. While outwardly gruff, he takes people to his heart and treats them as family. This welcoming family feeling remains at Brighton Resort. Not one to seek glory for all of his achievements, Zane is reluctant to list his ski accolades. The best way to appreciate Zane Doyle's work is to go up to Brighton and look at his legacy.
