Description "I was extremely impressed with the efforts and dedication the library is put-ting forth on behalf of our industry. We are so fortunate to have Dr. (Greg) Thompson and his talented team to pre-serve historic events as they unfold." Nathan Rafferty, president of Ski Utah, gave that assessment after he and 33 members of that organization's board of directors toured the world-renowned Ski Archives at the University of Utah's J. Willard Marriott Library on May 25 during its annual spring meeting. The "insider tour" of the files, films and spe-cial collections was directed by Roy Webb, multi media archivist at the li-brary. Several members of the Ski Ar-chives volunteer advisory board also were on hand. Calling the archives "a treasure", Rafferty lauded the library's "efforts to preserve everything about winter sports in the region, from old ski trail maps to pho-tos of the first-ever skiers to carve a pow-der turn in the Wasatch to the records of the Olympic Winter Games of 2002." The president of the promotional en-tity of the state's ski and snowboard in-dustry was particularly heartened in watching "resort general managers, many of who have been in the ski business for more than 40 years, delight in seeing old photographs and memorabilia tracking the history of Utah's now-burgeoning ski industry." In that regard, Bob Wheaton, president of Deer Valley Resort, was par-ticularly impressed with extraordinary care archivists give to the numerous pho-tos, manuscripts, film and collections on file. Dr. Thompson, associate dean of the library's special collections and co-founder in 1989 of the Ski Archives, noted that the ski/outdoor industry of the region is one of the core beneficiaries of the archives since the resorts, related ser-vices and products are the recipients of whatever exposure is generated by re-searchers, historians and reporters world-wide who look to the ski archives for in-formation, photos and film. GREETINGS FROM THE Ski Archives Wows Ski Utah CHAIR Barbara Yamada The 2002 Olym-pic and Paralympic Winter Games was a magic time.

Willard Marriott Library's Ski Ar-chives Ski Affair to recollect those days and to celebrate the Women Ski Jumper's future Olym-pics Games competition. The stalwart - and enthusiastic -- volunteer members of the board of the Ski Affair are ex-cited about kicking off the ski season with Ski Utah, Rossignol and the regional ski resorts. Their support over the 20+ years and yours are the reasons behind the success of the annual Ski Affair. For that we sincerely thank you.
