Beattie originated the concept of the U.S. Ski Team in the 1960s. He coached Billy Kidd and Jimmie Heuga to the first Olympic alpine medals for U.S. men in 1964. He co-founded the World Cup tour in 1966. He covered four Winter Olympics for ABC and called the most famous ski race of all, Franz Klammer's death-defying gold medal run in the downhill at the 1976 Innsbruck Games. -- From The Denver Post 04/03/12
