Through the experiences of former Olympic ski coach Alf Engen, we relive the days when ski jumps were constructed of rickety wooden frames, when loop bindings strapped around the skier's boots held his fate, and when records were being broken all the time as ski sports developed from their fledgling roots to more sophisticated tests of courage and skill.

From old-time flipflop skis to modern-day snowboards, from miners to Olympians, from Park City to Snowbasin—Alan Engen and Gregory Thompson capture the rich legacy of skiing in Utah’s indomitable Wasatch Mountain Range through upbeat informative text and fascinating vintage and recent photographs. "Winter sport had reached the masses, and tiny mom-and-pop ski areas sprouted alongside the major resorts of the Wasatch Front. The fervor of the early pioneers—the miners, Alf Engen, the Rasmussen brothers—spread to thousands of Utahns, who began promoting their home as the ‘King of Winter Sports.’ The craze for skiing had matured into a deep-rooted respect for the canyons, ridgelines, and fields that harbor alpine and cross-country skiers alike, bringing people together in recreation and competition. Why shouldn’t the world share such a magnificent place?” Mitt Romney President and CEO Salt Lake Organizing Committee Olympic Winter Games of 2002 Alan K. Engen is the author of the award-winning book For the Love of Skiing: A Visual History. He is also the chairman and president of the Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation, chairman and president of the Alta Historical Society, board member of the International Skiing History Association. Currently, he is the Director of Skiing at Alta, Utah, and has been affiliated with the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) for more than forty years. He lives in Salt Lake City. Gregory C. Thompson, Ph.D., is the Assistant Director for the University of Utah’s J. Willard Marriott Library Special Collections and an adjunct assistant professor of history. In the 1980s, he cofounded the Marriott Library’s Utah Ski Archives Program. He lives in Salt Lake City. A search is underway for the names of ski jumpers who competed on Ecker Hill, in Park City, from the time the jumps were constructed in 1929 until the last competition on the hill in 1964. The names will be included in a new bronze monument commemorating the role of Ecker Hill in American skiing history. Please visit the Ecker Hill Jumpers Memorial Page if know of a jumper that should be included.

Ski Soldier is a true-life adventure story for readers ages 10 to 14 by noted nonfiction writer Louise Borden. It tells the story of Pete Seibert, a ski soldier severely wounded in World War II who went on to found the Vail Ski Resort in Colorado. Ever since he first strapped on his mother's wooden skis when he was seven, Pete Seibert always loved to ski. At 18, Pete enlisted in the U.S. Army and joined the 10th Mountain Division, soldiers who fought on skis in World War II. In the mountains of Italy, Pete encountered the mental and physical horrors of war. When he was severely wounded and sent home to recover, Pete worried that he might never ski again. But with perseverance and the help of other 10th Mountain ski soldiers, he took to the slopes again and fulfilled his boyhood dream--founding the famous ski resort in Vail, Colorado.
