Skiing In Utah - A Photo Exhibit
The following photos are taken from various collections in Marriott Library's photo archives.
Utah has a long history of skiing, beginning as basic transportation and developing to today's multi-million dollar recreation industry. The generally dry climate of Utah produces some of the "best snow on earth," and this resource is fully utilized. In the early mining camps of Alta and Park City, skis were used to deliver the mail or just to get around in the winter. By the 1930s, national ski jump competitions were being held at Ecker Hill, just outside Salt Lake City. Alta became Utah's first ski resort in 1940, and others, including Brighton, Park City, Solitude, Snow Basin, and Snowbird followed as skiing became a national pastime. Utah has recently been chosen as the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics, taking the sport of skiing into the next century.
