Description Award Winners This year the University of Utah Marriott Library Ski Archives will honor those who distinguished themselves in the competitive world of ski racing in the Intermountain area during the 1950s and 1960s. Because of the abundance of talent and the desire to honor a truly select group of skiers, the selection process was a difficult one and the criteria were necessarily restrictive. Selection criteria for 2005 honorees required that they still be living, are residents of the Intermountain area (or were at the time of competitive accomplishments) , were members of either Olympic teams or FIS or achieved collegiate All-American status or were top finishers in major international races, and had not been honored previously as a competitor in the past five years.

At age 14 she became Jackson Hole's first Junior National Champion and was named to the U.S. Ski Team at age 17. She was on the U.S. FIS Team or the U.S. Olympic Team every year between 1967 and 1972 when she retired from racing. In 1969 and 1970 she consistently finished in the top ten in World Cup and other international competitions while finishing 1 lth in the World Championships. In 1971, Karen was third in the combined in the French National Championships at LaPlagne, France and won second place in the World Cup GS in Heavenly Valley, CA.
