30 years ago at Sun Valley

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I found this picture recently while going through some boxes in the attic. It's from 1985, with some friends at Sun Valley. We were in grad school at the time. This was during March break. I remember the first day conditions were disappointing. That night however it dumped about 2.5 feet of super light powder. The rest of the week was fantastic. I'm on the right. The guy taking the picture had lived there for 3 years after undergraduate studies. He worked at a local radio station. He knew all the places to find fresh powder. Lots of tree skiing that week. Great week, great memory.

Nice nostalgic photo.  I used to ski with a ball cap quite a bit on milder days back in that time frame.  Other than the guy with the funny hat you guys had a look that’s held up pretty good over time, subdued for 1985.  Back then I was in lots of bright colors like a circus clown – oops in my case not much has changed.:D

Was the photographer who worked at the local radio station named Kit Naaris? If so,my wife and I knew him. Unfortunately, he died of lung cancer five or six years ago.

Wait...  You're all on skinny skis!  Nobody's wearing a helmet!  How did you possibly survive?

Back then I used to ski in a ball cap quite a bit. That one was a Mammoth mountain hat, my home mountain before moving to the east coast to attend grad school. The guy on the left is wearing a fake beaver hat, he was the joker in the group. Very funny guy. I agree, the clothing is pretty tame for 1985.

No, his name was Andy Greenspan. Not sure what he did there. He was in his early 20's when he worked at the radio station.
