Title Page 4
Description WAS' winter activities include adaptive skiing, using many adaptive devices such as mono- and bi-skis, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and adaptive hockey. In the summer, the fare includes hiking, fishing, GPS and orienteering instruction, nature hikes, playing in the Forever Young Zone Boundless Interpretive Playground, bicycling, handcycling, wheel-chair tennis, horseback riding, bowling, tram rides and camp mg. Mandler says one of the keys to WAS' success is that it interacts and collaborates with doctors and therapists at Salt Lake City's Primary Children's Medical Center, Shriners Hospital for Children, and the University of Utah Health Care Rehabilitation Center. It also has close ties with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Salt Lake, Salt Lake Valley Mental Health, and the Christmas Box. Another vital ingredient is WAS' scholarships program that allows all "students" to enroll in its programs. Funding for the scholarships come from special events, grants, individual donations and some program fees. Most prominent of the special events is the annual Steve Young Ski Classic at Snowbird, named for Steve Young, the one-time star quarterback for Brigham Young University and later the National Football League, and founder of the Forever Young Foundation. The founding and success of Wasatch Adaptive Sports - and more - are reasons why Peter Mandler is the recipient of the Utah Ski Archives' History-Maker Award in 2009. 2008 Sue Raemer Memorial Award (Note: The Sue Raemer Memorial Award is presented annually to an individual on the Advisory Board of the J Willard Marriott Library's Ski Archives who exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism, leadership and dedication to the program exemplified by Sue and has made a significant contribution to the success of the Ski Affair. This award is in memory of the late Sue Raemer, co­founder of the Ski Archives.) Bev Beasley, the 2008 Sue Raemer Memorial Award recipient has been a member of the University of Utah's Marriott Library Ski Archives Advisory Board for the past six years and the Chair of the Silent Auction Committee for the past three years. She has displayed the enthusiasm and drive which are the basis of this award. She and her committee have a very challenging job and ;;lre central to the success of the evenmg. New Ski Archives Collections This has been another big year for the University of Utah Marriott Library's Ski Archives, with one huge collection and some smaller, but very significant ones received. The major acquisition of the year came from the United States Ski and Snowboard Association, and consisted of 117 boxes of photos and videotapes. There are almost a 1,000 photos and hundreds of videotapes, and we have no doubt but that this donation will prove to be one of the most important we've received in a long time. Also this year we received a collection of almost 250 slides taken by Darrell Watchman while he was a ski lift attendant at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort from 1975- 1977. Mike Korologos, long-time supporter and donor of the Ski Archives, gave us photos and materials from the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. From Bjorn Malkom~en, we received images of three generations of skiers; Bjorn's father (Olav) ski jumping in Holmenkollen, Oslo, Norway in 1935, Bjorn's oldest son (Olav) in Gelande competition at Alta in 2000 and Bjorn in the Gelande in 1999 and a giant slalom race in Norway 1982. Former Olympian Karen Korfanta donated images from her career, as did Lori Adamski-Peek, Park City photographer, who gave us photographs of the late Nick Badami, prime mover of Park City Mountain Resort. Tom Spencer gave us an image of himself ski jumping over a car, and we documented last year's Ski Mfair with a CD containing almost 100 images. Two multi-volume book collections have been donated by Tony Hedgecock and Paul Robbins. Between these two collections, more than 2,000 books, magazines, pamphlets and memorabilia are being added to the library's ski print holdings. The manuscript holdings also continue to grow with additions from USSA, Paul Robbins and Mike Korologos. Roy Webb, C.A. Tom Spencer ------------------------------------------------------*
