Description University of Utah, J. Willard Marriott Library Editor: Mike Korologos 20r07 Sl{I AFFAIR 14 Intermountain Ski Areas Gain 'History-Maker' Status Fourteen ski areas in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming that helped nurture the region's fledging sport of skiing will take their place in the annals of ski history when they receive "History-Maker" awards during the 17th annual Ski Affair, one of the area's largest ski fund-raising events. The 2007 edition of the festive, nostalgia-bent Ski Affair will be held on Thursday, October 18th, at the Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. The event is open to the public. A six p.m. reception includes a silent auction, followed by dinner, the awards ceremonies and a fun video presentation. Building on the foundations forged by the "granddaddy" ski areas that gave birth to alpine skiing in the region (such as Alta, Brighton and Snowbasin, in Utah; Snow I<ing in Jackson, Wyoming; and Sun Valley, in Idaho), the 2007 History-Makers will be recognized for popularizing the sport during its formative years. "The ski areas being recognized at this year's Ski Affair played an important role in the evolution of alpine skiing in the region," said Dr. Gregory C. Thompson, Associate Director of Special Collections at the University of Utah's J. Willard Marriott Library, sponsor of the annual gathering. "These fourteen sites are being recognized because they helped bring skiing to the masses in their respective locales when the sport was in its infancy," Dr. Thompson acknowledged. "They revamped and expanded the region's skiing landscape and they still play big roles in recreation today. They are 'history-makers' in every sense." Ski areas to be honored are (with the years they were established and locales in parentheses): Bogus Basin Mountain (1942, Boise, Idaho); Brian Head Resort (1965, Cedar City, Utah); Brundage Mountain Resort (1961, McCall, Idaho); The Canyons/Park West (1968, Park City, Utah); Grand Targhee Resort (1969, Grand Targhee, Wyoming); Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (1964, Jackson Hole, Wyoming); Kelly Canyon Ski Resort (1957, 2007 Ski Affair Thursday, October 18, 2007 6:00 p.m. Little America Hotel Salt Lake City, UT $70 per person $ 1,500 sponsored table of 10 Reserve Your Spot Today!

Proceeds from the Ski Affair support the Ski Archives, founded in 1989 at the Marriott Library, to locate, preserve, catalog and make available to the public the ski history of the Intermountain Region. The archives have become the region's largest repository for historically significant materials, ranging from items pertaining to the sport's humble beginnings in the 1800s to the glamorous days of the Olympic Winter Games of 2002, hosted by Salt Lake City. The archives contain more than 100,000 images (20,000 digitized and available online), 250 manuscript collections and more that 250 oral histories..
