Description EDGAR STERN 2006 S. J. QUINNEY AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO SKIING Edgar Stern's pur­chase of 7,000 acres of land in 1968 in Park City, Utah, including Treasure Mountain Resort (now Park City Mountain Resort), was the catalyst for the establish­ment of his dream resort: Deer Val-ley, which opened December 26, 1981. His extraordinary vision was to build a resort that of­fered visitors a quality experience rarely found anywhere in the industry. Mission accomplished! In 2002, Ski Magazine rated Deer Valley the "Number One" overall ski resort in North America. The resort perennially receives similar accolades from a grate­ful ski community, including worldwide exposure during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games when it was the venue for slalom, aerials and moguls competi­tions. Deer Valley also hosted FIS Freestyle World Cup competitors in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Edgar's influence and generosity reaches beyond Deer Val­ley and includes Ballet West, the National Ability Center, Salt Lake Art Center, Utah Special Olympics, Utah Open Lands, Kimball Art Center, Guadalupe Schools, People's Health Clinic and the Salt Lake Symphony. The S.J. Quinney Award is named for the late "Joe" Quinney, co-founder of the Alta Ski area. He was a major benefactor of numerous community-based programs including the University of Utah J. Willard Marriott Library's Special Collections, the Joe Quin­ney Winter Sports Center/ Alf Engen Ski Museum at the Olympic Park and the University of Utah's S.J. and J.E. Quinney School of Law. 2006 - 2007 HONORARY CHAIRS Bill and Suzy Rytting The Ski Archives is pleased to once again have one­time United States Olympic Ski Team member and dominant women's racer of the 1940s, Suzy Harris Rytting and her husband, Bill, as the honorary chairs for the 2006 Ski Mfair. Photo of History-Makers from last year SKI AFFAIR 2005: A BLAST FROM THE PAST If you missed the Ski Mfair 2005, you missed a great event. It was the perfect prequel to this year's recognition of future legendary ski racers. One year ago the Ski Archives honored competitors who have become honored names among the legends of competition in the Intermountain Area. Those recognized last year included alpine skiers Karen Budge, Spence Eccles, Alan Engen, Jim Gaddis, Karen Korfanta, Marv Melville, Ray Miller and Dick Mitchell. Nordic skiers honored included Peter Karns, Mack Miller, Bill Spencer and Ralph Wakley. Of course last year's event included the festive atmosphere we have come to anticipate and enjoy at every Ski Affair. It was also a successful event netting over $40,000. It is the generous support of University of Utah's Marriott Library Ski Archives supporters that make it possible. Thank you' and see you at this year's event. -Joe Arave
