Maria Maricich Rides The Midas Touch
Toasting The 50th M
With Snowshoe Tours STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
rack wolves, view goats and examine the riparian corridor of the Big Wood River. The Idaho Conservation League and Sun Valley Trekking are toasting the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act with six snowshoe tours. The series kicks off from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday with a two-mile, round-trip, family-friendly snowshoe hike along the Big Wood River. Molly Reeve of Sun Valley Trekking will describe the way plants and animals adapt to the winter environment along the way. There will be a Mountain Goat and Ecology tour from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 23, March 2 and March 16. That will be followed by a Wolf Tracking and Ecology tour from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 30 and April 6. All the hikes are on Sundays. “This adventure series is one of a number of things we will have during the year celebrating wilderness,” said Betsy Mizel, the ICL’s new Central Idaho outreach associate. “With this series we want to get people outside, participating in some hands-on activities in hopes they will develop a lifelong relationship with the land. Part of it is about showing people areas we’re trying to protect.” The treks will take place against the backdrop of the Smoky, Pioneer and Boulder mountains. Costs range from $55 to $85. ICL members get 10 percent off. To register, contact Sun Valley Trekking at 208.788.1966. Visit idahoconservation. org or call the ICL’s Ketchum office at 208.726.7485 for more information.

aria Maricich would seem to have the Midas touch. She won the first and only figure skating competition she entered at age 12. She won scads of ribbons and trophies riding atop a hunter-jumper pony that went on to become a national champion. She won the bicycle races and foot races she entered to keep in shape. And when she cast her lot with skiing, she rode her skis to the top of the skiing world, becoming the fastest downhill female racer in America, the second fastest in the world. One of the few Olympians born and raised in Sun Valley, Maricich was part of America’s 1984 women’s dream team that raced down the Olympic Mountains of Sarajevo during the 1984 Winter Olympics. She’ll be honored on the 30th anniversary of that fete by being inducted into the Sun Valley Ski Hall of Fame in a ceremony at 5 today at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. The ceremony is free and open to the public. “She was very talented. You have to be a great glider to go downhill like she did,” said Michel Rudigoz, head coach of the women’s team that included Sun Valley’s Christin Cooper, Debbie Armstrong, Tamara McKinney and Cindy Nelson. “But it doesn’t matter how much you train. You have to have a certain natural ability and she always had that.” “She was a very strong, very independent person—very focused,” he added.
Maricich’s father—Sun Valley’s ice skating guru Herman Maricich—had her skating by the time she was 1. She was just 3 when she became part of a family act, twirling over her dad’s head, the bow her mother Connie insisted putting in her hair fluttering in the whirlwind the two created. By 7 she was jumping rope on ice skates.Her mother Connie took her skiing, putting a 2-year-old Maria in her lap as she rode the single chair up Dollar Mountain while Maria’s older brother Nick hung off the chair in front like a monkey. Intent on keeping up with her brother, who was three years older, Maria was in a hurry to grow up. She stashed her bicycle behind the Catholic Church on her way to kindergarten so no one would see her training wheels. And when Nick went into a tuck skiing straight down Rotarun ski hill, she followed suit. “I said, ‘I can do this!’ And I remember feeling so accomplished at the end. To this day, Nick claims he was my best coach,” Maricich recalled. “My horse also taught me about being brave. People couldn’t believe how he could jump, how we could jump.” Still, Maricich’s Olympic dream very nearly didn’t happen. She quit the ski team in third grade and her father balked at letting her return in the fifth grade

when an influx of California transplants, like Christin Cooper, joined the team. “All the cool kids were on the team so I wanted to be on it, too. I begged and begged and my dad said, ‘No.’ Finally, he relented,” Maricich recalled. “I won a whole bunch of stuff in my age group and that set the foundation for my sticking with it. The success made me feel good about myself and gave me the impetus to stay with it. It was like having a carrot out in front—it made me want more.” It was Franz Klammer’s historic 1976 Olympic gold medal run, one that has been called the greatest downhill run of all time, that turned an impressionable 14-year-old Maria onto the Olympics. “He was on the edge of disaster the whole time. I sat there watching that and thought, ‘How cool would that be!’ That set me in motion,” she said. There would be no stopping her.
The Mental Side
The ease with which she skated across the ice on a blade an eighth-inch thick helped her keep a flat ski when she pointed boards three inches wide downhill. And soon she was one of five girls on a Sun Valley ski team that dominated the Intermountain Division, which included Idaho, Utah and Wyoming.
It was her introspective side—the side that scoured books seeking ways to gain more success in life—that propelled her to the top of that team. When Maricich was 16, she read “The Inner Game of Tennis,” which details overcoming the self-doubt and lapses of concentration that can keep an athlete from winning. “It talks about tuning into the body’s innate knowledge, which knows how to do whatever you’re trying to do. It talks about taking your inner critic out of the picture and trusting that your body knows what it’s doing,” Maricich recalled. “I’d run out Trail Creek and on my way back I’d face the mountain, feeling its energy, connecting with the mountain in sort of an altered state. I’d do the same thing on the course, trying to connect and be one with the mountain, to feel the energy of the mountain. It’s not you against the mountain. It’s you with the mountain. It’s not trying to conquer the mountain. It’s you uniting with the mountain.” Applying the principles in the book revolutionized Maricich’s skiing. She aced the NorAm races she competed in, and she made the Junior National team at 16, allowing her to train with the U.S. Ski Team. “At one point she was my little sister, following me around the hill. Then overnight she turned into one of the best in the

Freestyle Spectacular Turns Into Three Ring Circus
BY KAREN BOSSICK
hirteen-year-old Will Griffith perched on the edge of the starting gate, staring at the jumps and rails below him. His heart was pounding so hard he figured his middle school classmates could hear it back at their desks. Then he swooped onto the slopestyle course, flipped through the air and everything slowed down to the point where he could see the trees on the edge of Dollar Mountain go by in slow motion. “I tend to overthink things when I’m awaiting my start,” said Griffith. “I try to tell myself it’s just another day in the park.” Griffith was one of nearly 300 competitors who took part in the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Freestyle Spectacular over the weekend. Competitors came from Utah, Idaho, Montana and California for four days of competition in Sun Valley’s Olympic-sized halfpipe, on its slopestyle jumps and rails and in mogul and dual moguls events. The mogul competition on Saturday fielded 103 skiers—one of the largest fields of competitors ever for an Intermountain Division event. “The weather was postcard perfect, the freestyle vibe from decades past was flowing,” said the Ski Education Foundation’s Program Director Andy Ware. “It was classic Sun Valley.” Skiers and boarders taking advantage of Sun Valley’s $40 lift tickets to raise money for air service were simply trying to keep their boards under their feet, avoiding the ignominious yard sale. But the freestyle competitors were going up, down and all around in what amounted to a three-ring circus between the pipe specialists, rail artists and mogul masters.
n head-to-head competition 16-year-old Zac Maricich-Siele scissored his way down bumps the size of elephant’s behinds, his knees handcuffed together as his Fisher GS skis made quick tight turns. He sailed up a 3-foot-tall ramp of snow and performed a Lincoln Loop, popping off the lip of the jump, driving his shoulder down and his hips up in a sideways cartwheel. Boom! He landed, sending up a splash of snow. Then he performed more fancy footwork—a series of short-radius turns—until he hit a second jump, landed and made a mad dash to the finish line, coming in ahead of his opponent. “Whooo!” exclaimed his mother, Maria Maricich, herself a 1984 Olympic downhill racer. “They weren’t doing these kinds of things when I was racing—not even close.” “Watching Zac is scary,” she added. “I have to disconnect. It’s scary for me, just as I’m sure it was probably scary for my mother when I was racing.” By Sunday afternoon, Maricich-Siele was one of the only mogul specialists still standing in the Sun Valley program. A
half-dozen teammates—many of whom started out in the racing program—had fallen Saturday. One separated his shoulder. Another suffered a broken collarbone. Still another injured the vertebrae in his back. But Maricich-Siele pressed on under the tutelage of head moguls coach Joey Cordeau, a four-time World Mogul Skiing champion who happened to be a member of the U.S. Ski Team at the same time as Zac’s mother. Cordeau was there when Sun Valley hosted the first U.S. Freestyle Championships in 1973. And at 57 he’s still a hot-dogger who wants nothing more than to teach youngsters how to rip it up in the bumps. “I came here from Maine to ski moguls. They said, ‘You want to ski moguls—Sun Valley’s the place,’ ” he recalled. “What I like about skiing moguls is it’s variable—it’s not like you just do the same thing all the time.” With Cordeau at the helm, the moguls program has grown from two competitors five years ago to a hundred-plus skiers. He’s a straight-shooter with his young charges—a straight-shooter who exudes an energy that fires them up. “He’s just a fun-loving guy—a kid himself—whether he’s snow skiing or water skiing. And the kids love him,” said Roger Lato, whose son Jeremy Lato is a coach on the freestyle program. “He teaches the kids how to have fun—and that’s something they can carry with them through life.” And is it hard to learn to let loose of yourself in the air? “ You start small—with the pizza wedge, just like everyone else,” shrugged Maricich-Siele. “And before you know it you’re doing back mutes, where you flip and grab your skis.” Maricich-Siele, who took first place at Montana’s Snowbowl a couple weeks ago, passed his qualifier for the dual moguls on Roundhouse slope. He beat one competitor. Then another. “Holy sh#t! That’s my kid!” a happy Maria Maricich announced to a small crowd lined up against the fence netting as she watched her son skid across the finish line, handily beating one more competitor. Finally, the mogul maniacs were down to one final race. Maricich-Siele glanced over at his opponent, then down the course. And in a flash the two were off. The other guy pulled slightly ahead but, hold on… it looked as if Maricich-Siele might pull off it off with one of his characteristic strong finishes. The two spun through the air, landed and scissored their way down the last row of bumps and—ay yi yi—Maricich-Siele crossed the finish line a mere foot behind. The judges calculated their final scores, awarding 25 percent for speed, 25 percent for air displays, 50 percent for the technicality of the turns. And the win went to the other guy in a close 13-12 decision. “That’s the way it goes,” Maricich-Siele shrugged. tws

If Mother Nature won’t provide the snow, we’ll shovel it ourselves! That’s the attitude Nordic skiers took last Wednesday and Thursday as they held a shovel-in at the southern end of the Harriman Trail in preparation for Saturday’s Boulder Mountain tour. The race, which begins at 10 a.m. at Galena Lodge, will draw hundreds of competitors who will ski more than 20 miles to the finish line opposite the Sawtooth National Recreation Area headquarters. More than a dozen skiers shoveled snow at the finish line on Wednesday, piling up some of the best powder snow in Idaho as they took it from underneath the local aspen and pine trees. On Thursday, more volunteers shoveled snow onto the course as it winds through the willows a little north of Murphy’s Bridge. Workers at Sun Valley Nordic Center, meanwhile, have been using a snowblower and shovels to build up ski trails there. The trails that are open are looking better and better with each passing day. tws
Repair, Maintain, Pass Along
Here’s A Look At The Top Local Freestyle Finishers Last Weekend

In the second event, Eli Roberts took the overall title and Alvaro Jiraldo finished third. Devon Brown took third overall in the women’s event. Slopestyle: Jacob Beebe took first overall in both events. Justin Kennedy finished third overall and second in the first event. Alvaro Jiraldo was third overall and second in the second event.

Dual Moguls: Zac Maricich-Siele finished second overall. Morgan Shaver was second (F2) and third overall. tws
he most important of the three ecological R’s is Reduce, but the American way of buying, throwing away and buying more is the absolute opposite behavior. Why don’t we have more things that people want to repair, maintain, and pass along to another generation? We’re being somewhat forced into it by the economy, but a major move away from disposable and into heirloom is crucial to the planet. Other countries have a thriving repair culture—something we’re just beginning to see in the USA. A string of Repair Cafés that originated in the Netherlands pairs people who know how to fix things with people who have items in need of repair. Whether the problem is a loose chair leg, holey sweater, buttonless shirt or lamp needing a new socket, the Repair Café stocks the tools and fix-it books, and provides a fertile environment for sharing knowledge. The Repair Café concept has spread to the U.S., and the closest one to us is in green trend-setting Portland. Although the Netherlands puts less than 3 percent of its municipal waste into landfills, there is still room for improvement, and the green-minded Dutch see the Repair Café as an effective way to change social awareness. After all, a broken object may still have a lot of miles in it. Can’t get your weed eater to Portland? Check out wikihow.org and YouTube for fix-it tips or start your own Repair Café!

Maria Maricich Musings
Favorite place to ski on World Cup circuit: Arosa, Switzerland. There are no trees at the top and the view is amazing. The weather was good there, too, although I did get frostbite on my nose. Favorite place to ski: Sun Valley, or course, with its long downhills and good snowmaking, which keeps the runs from getting rutty. I was lucky enough to have been born here. Her most memorable run: Zell am See Aut, a ski resort on a lake in Austria. It was really foggy-—you couldn’t see the end of your nose. And the downhill was filled with rutty bumps. But I felt as if I was one with the mountain—I sailed through, trusted my body and felt good. And then as I made one turn I could see the lake through the haze—it felt as if I was falling into the sea. Favorite downhill racer: Lindsay Vonn is amazing—she weebles and wobbles. She gets hurt and she still comes back. And Picabo Street, too. They both fulfilled the dream I didn’t make. Olympic highlight: Walking into the opening ceremony in a Western sheepskin coat, cowboy boots with fleece liners and a cowboy hat—one of 1,272 athletes from 49 countries. “You’re standing there representing your country and everyone is cheering. I also enjoyed sitting in the Olympic Village and talking with other athletes—I first met skater Judy Blumberg there. Pet peeve: You spend your entire career toiling on something people in this country know nothing about. Then, when you tell someone you went to the Olympics, the first thing they ask is: Did you get a medal? They don’t see all these things that you did to get to the Olympics. The Olympics happen to be one day—a day that was not a good day for me. Advice for Olympians headed to Sochi: I tell them the same thing I tell my son—the most important thing is to have fun. Will she watch the downhill at Sochi? Certainly, but maybe the emotions everyone is going through is heightened for me because I know the pain and the glory. tws

trap yourself in for the ride of a lifetime when you sit back and watch Martin Scorsese’s new masterwork, The Wolf of Wall Street. Not only is it the fastest three hours that you will ever spend at the movies, it is also far and away the most entertaining American film of the year. Telling the story of one young man’s rise and fall on Wall Street before everything went bad in 2008, Scorsese, with the immense help of a remarkable performance by Leonardo DiCaprio, has crafted one of the great films of his illustrious career and certainly his best film since Goodfellas. The director, now in his seventies, still has the touch, and this darkest of dark comedies shows him to be in peak form with all the dazzle you expect from him – a dizzying pace, spectacular camera moves and perhaps the best use of music and rock and roll in the history of film. The story, written by Terence Winter (Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire) is based on the autobiography of Jordan Belfort and tells the sordid tale

of his rise from selling penny stocks out on Long Island to his creation of the faux WASP firm of Stratton Oakmont to his raking in millions of dollars with a life of sex and drugs to match to his eventual downfall. The tone is set in an incredible luncheon scene with his mentor played by Mathew McConaughey in which he is advised to fuel his life with hookers and cocaine and the mantra that, as brokers, we don’t make anything but instead capitalize on the greed of others. The supporting cast is outrageous and a delight, with tremendous performances by Jonah Hill, Rob Reiner, Spike Jonze and others.

One might use it, for instance, to address a lack of money. You could encourage attainment of wealth by adjusting your environment or even adjusting someone in the workplace, such as a mentor or boss whom could give you the help you need to attain more wealth, Post said. It might involve not only creating a magnet to draw money but realizing that you are a treasure, he added. “The Supreme Yogas of Black Sect Tantric Buddhism,” which he will teach in the workshop, explores nine meditation stages. It gives people tools for self-exploration and a system of self-development that Post says is not difficult to practice. It will address such issues as how we can become calm if agitated and how we can get rid of negative emotions. In one stage people will learn how to send their energy or chi to a distant location and bring it back safely. “Often, I use that principle talking with a client on the phone,” Post said. Other stages involve learning to foresee what will happen in the future, learning how to go inside someone to see who’s really there and learning to express the spirit of the divine. “A person can use it to advance his cause, whether that involves attaining more money, protecting family or achieving better parenting or more intimacy,” Post said. “I follow Joe Lewis’ fight plan: Plan your work. Then, work your plan. We create a mission, then fulfill it through adjusting the environ-

In modern Western practice, Feng Shui is perhaps most often associated with arranging your house to attract good energy. But Steven Post’s view of Feng Shui goes beyond rearranging your furniture to utilizing Feng Shui principles to address bigger issues, such as the effect of climate change on humans. Post has even addressed a group of United Nations employees who are Feng Shui practitioners about some of his ideas about how we could create a more humane environment in the face of climate change. “Look at the profoundly significant water issues that the planet will experience. Some of the big rivers of China like the Yellow River may become seasonal rivers as the glacial ice melt up in the Himalayas gets used up,” said Post, a Feng Shui practitioner for 40 years. “You could apply Feng Shui principles to address some of those problems.” Post, author of “The Modern Book of Feng Shui,” was a speaker at the 2013 Sun Valley Wellness Festival. He will conduct a Winter Wellness Workshop titled “The Supreme Yogas of Black Sect Tantric Buddhism” in Sun Valley on Feb. 8 and 9. Feng shui is a Chinese system of harmonizing the human existence with the surrounding environment. Historically, it was used to orient buildings, such as tombs. Addressing furniture, as Feng Shui principles do, is what Post calls “kindergarten level.”

BY WENDELL CAYTON
rench writer Antoine De Saint-Exupery wrote that a goal without a plan is just a wish. A good plan might focus on helping clients define goals and implement plans to accomplish those goals. But a really good plan goes beyond the typical analytical process of planning and incorporates a vision of the results. Its important for a client to have a clear vision of his future because it is this vision that opens up the possibilities for planning. Defining vision can best be done by illustrating some examples. A planning vision for a man in retirement might be “I see myself relaxed, playing golf when I want, fishing from my boat and enjoying my grandchildren,” which is quite different from a goal stated as, “I wish to retire at age 65 with enough money to enjoy my retirement.” The first is an expression of hopes and dreams, the second is a quantifiable goal with no defined outcome. But planning visions will change over time. A 30-year-old, just married, might have a vision that includes three children, a four-bedroom house and two big dogs. Fifteen years later his vision might include the thought of seeing three children graduate from college. Next is a retirement life, and, finally, his vision might be good health, shooting his age on the golf course and cruising the world… with someone else handling his luggage!
When applied in a financial planning context, these examples of visions are not goals… goals are quantifiable waypoints that one works toward. Goals are measurable… we can tell when we get there. If we are off track, we make strategic and tactical adjustments to the plan, always keeping in mind the ultimate vision of the quest.
“What the mind can conceive and believe, and the heart desire, you can achieve.” -Norman Vincent Peale
Vision in the planning process might be thought of as the start of a journey. Each step of the way brings a different outcome, a different set of successes and failures, all to be adjusted as part of the planning process. Sometimes, when starting out, the vision might seem out of reach, or downright impossible to achieve. For many, the solutions may come, not so much
from how much wealth is accumulated, but from the power of positive thinking. For generations, those interested in exploring the power of positive thinking have read “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen. Allen makes the point that there are few things in life we truly have control over. One of those things is how we think about things either positively or negatively. Holocaust survivor Dr. Viktor Frankel in “Man’s Search for Meaning” relates how his ability to maintain control of his mind and how he thought about things while a concentration camp prisoner helped him to survive the ordeal. Throughout his life he continued to teach that man is ultimately self-determining. While it is important to have well-stated goals and plans for achieving those goals, it is the vision we should work toward and, more often than not, one needs to let the power of positive thinking help make adjustments and find solutions along the way. So when contemplating your financial plan, instead of dwelling on your ability to accumulate wealth, try thinking instead how you want your life to be along the way. How do you see yourself living in your 60s, 70s and beyond? What do you see as your legacy in your estate plan? How do you want to be remembered by your family or your community? What’s your vision?

Uncorking Prayers For Snow
BY KAREN BOSSICK
J2 Hadden would have rather been skiing. But more pressing matters, like praying for snow, had him frying bacon instead Sunday afternoon.
hile East Coast church congregations were huddled in church praying for it to stop snowing, Sun Valley skiers staged a pray-in for snow Sunday afternoon on the deck of Sun Valley’s historic Roundhouse Restaurant. With the sun beating down from the bluebird sky that has colored Sun Valley for the past month, JZ Hadden fried bacon on a Coleman stove. Others, like Christy Luby, Dave Johnson and Angie Hansen, poured champagne for each prayer that was said. “It’s a Pray for Snow Champagne Jam,” said Hansen, who never could quite explain how the bacon fit in. By 3 the prayer warriors had uncorked about two dozen bottles, which they lined up on the deck railing. Now it remains to be seen what prayer, champagne and tws bacon can do.

Student Spotlight: Haley Montgomery BY JONATHAN KANE
aley Montgomery, a Wood River High School senior carrying a 3.7 grade point average, has a great deal of activities to fill her day. Besides being an avid Nordic skier, Montgomery immerses herself in community service through the Key Club and the Compassionate Leaders program and is a budding artist. Born in Dansbury, Conn., she moved to the Wood River Valley when she was seven years old after a stop in Arizona. “It was a little different at first,” she said. “It was really laid back here and I had never lived in a really cold climate before but I liked it much more than Arizona. My first memories are of snowboarding on Dollar and then joining the Nordic ski team, which has had a big impact on my activities and has shaped my friendships. I also really like the fact that this is a close-knit community with a lot of community events and in a small town people really get involved. I guess the downside is that sometimes it’s hard to find things to do because everything is so structured, but we just get creative.” Last year Montgomery became a Compassionate Leader and made the trip to India on a goodwill mission. “I had never joined a club like that but my friends really enjoyed it and I wanted to be in a completely different setting and to learn about a new culture. Visiting a place like New Delhi was shell shocking because there were so many people in a small area and because it was 105 degrees with high humidity.” But there was a lot to take out of the experience. “It really taught me to not judge people as much and to be more open minded. You really need to step back and enjoy life.” In the Valley, Montgomery throws herself into community service as a member of the Key Club, which works closely with the Kiwanis Club. “I started my sophomore year because I wanted to be more involved and this seemed liked the perfect outlet. This year I’m the secretary. A lot of the work I do is at the senior home and I’ve also helped with Christmas fairs at the Armory and at Hemingway Elementary. What I’ve really taken out of it is that older people and kids have a lot in common and their relationship is not stereotypical. Doing service is also not just about the hours. It’s about the relationships and the people that you meet and it really makes you feel good when you do something for someone else.” At Wood River Montgomery has immersed herself into a variety of Advanced Placement
“I had never joined a club like that but my friends really enjoyed it and I wanted to be in a completely different setting and to learn about a new culture “
classes including U.S. history, language and composition, government, statistics, literature and psychology. She has also immersed herself in the visual arts by taking Introduction to Art, Studio Art and two ceramic courses. “At first I needed an art credit for college but once I started I really liked it. It turns out to be really therapeutic because I can go and just clear my head. Also, since I’m not naturally talented, I have to really work at it and that’s a great thing.” But it’s nothing new for a student that works hard at everything.

Wood River Freshman Scores Big In The Mushing World BY KAREN BOSSICK

n weekdays, Julia Larsen looks out over life from the desk at Wood River High School. On weekends, the freshman sees life from the platform of a musher’s sled. And last week she saw the finish line first as she took first place in the Darby Dog Derby in Darby, Mont. “It was a 15-mile race and she took the A-team dogs because her father wanted her to get used to them. He took the B-team dogs and came in sixth,” said Julia’s mother Linda Larsen. Julia and her father Troy, who owns Windy City Arts, got involved in dog sled racing six years ago. “We saw an ad for dogs for sale and we went for one and got three. Then we had four. Then we needed a sled. It’s an addicting sport because the dogs have so much fun and they make it fun,” said Linda Larsen. Julia competed in dog sled junior races until last race season where she competed in open class and adult classes. This year she is competing in the adult 6 dog classes with six dogs. The others in a race have to agree to let a junior like Julia race with them, Linda said. They don’t want incompetence on the trail because it endangers themselves and the other dogs. “It’s not a matter of standing on the back of the sled. You’ve got to drive that sled,” said Linda. “You have to lean correctly. You have to watch the dogs so they don’t get hurt—there’s a lot of responsibility involved. The fact that she’s been allowed to race with the adults shows how well she’s done and how well she’s proven herself.” This past weekend Julia Larsen raced against world champion dogs from Canada in two seven-mile sprints at the Rocky Mountain Sled Dog Championship in Soda Springs. She came in ninth out of 20 racers. Six racers ended up dropping out. Julia’s father will compete in Ashton this weekend. Julia’s next race will be March 1. Their team—Five Degrees—donates a wheelchair to freewheelchairmissions.org. every time they win. The team is sponsored by Windy City Arts, KLiM, Sweet Bee Magic and Alaska Fur Gallery. tws
Heinz Renews Commitment To Galena Lodge STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

Heinz offered a $75,000 donation to make sure the lodge is around “20 years from now and 20 years beyond.” Heinz was not able to attend the banquet held at the Sun Valley Inn but wrote a lengthy letter in which she praised the rustic Nordic ski lodge as “a rare, very special place” of peace

and tradition in a world full of change, “a place where our souls may reconnect with our true selves.” “We tend to take it for granted,” she wrote, “and that’s a mistake.” Heinz’s challenge to others to make a contribution toward the future of the lodge and the North Valley ski trails seemed to hit a strong chord. Organizers are still crunching numbers. But the sold-out crowd of 450 helped contribute to a record amount, said organizer Jenny Busdon. Wood River Valley residents offered a number of unusual items for the silent auction. Among them, a scrimshaw ostrich egg crafted by Karen Simpson and 2014 U.S. Ski Team jackets. Six Nordic enthusiasts, including Tom Pomeroy, Joan Scheingraber, Ann Scales, Char Roth and Trish Klahr, offered six desserts on demand. Among them: organic pecan chocolate chip cookies; rum chocolate mousse; crunchy-top apple pie; Moosewood brownies; and carrot cake. And Sun Valley Ski Education

Foundation skiers offered to serve as sherpas for a backpack trip to Cramer Lake. A week in the Mediterranean fetched $10,000. A gourmet dinner for 16 with 11 Magnums of wine at Galena Lodge raised $9,000. Vamps head coach Muffy Ritz presented a check from her women’s program to the trail groomers—a tribute to their hard work during a low snow year. And Jenny Busdon made a toast to Bonni Curran, a Nordic enthusiast who died in a bicycle accident last summer in Ketchum. “The whole evening was a huge success from the dedication to Bonni to the donation from Teresa to the great dancing to the High Street Band,” said Jenny Busdon. “It was a celebration and a hats-off to all that has been achieved over the past 20 years of purchasing Galena Lodge and the trails surrounding it. “It is really hard for me to even think of not having all those trails up north had we not been successful,” she added, “especially in low snow years like this one!” tws
Whatever Super Entendre’ Bowl Easy Super Bowl Snacks ! Happened To A Simplicity? BY CHRIS MILSPAUGH
BY STELLA STOCKTON
often joke that ‘doing nothing’ is my favorite thing. Can you remember the last time you did absolutely nothing at all? Just texting or surfing doesn’t count! In our increasingly busy lives, it seems we all multitask; our culture seems to insist on it. Yet, as you may well know, this incessant busyness can be very stressful and chaotic. You may find yourself asking, like I often do, whatever happened to simplicity? Sadly, it seems that we are rapidly moving toward what
application of effort. I invite you to spend just a few moments this week doing absolutely nothing; 10 to 15 minutes will do, initially. Stop everything. Turn off all devices and simply sit or lie down. Allow all thoughts to settle and fall away (this may take a few minutes). Focus intently on your breathing. See how deeply you can settle into the quiet and just be. Honor your need to relax and rejuvenate. You may be surprised at what you discover.
“Multitasking is a rapidly growing phenomenon affecting all segments of the population but is rarely as successful as its proponents believe. Although personal electronic devices provide many benefits, their adverse effects are frequently overlooked. Recent scientific literature supports the view that overuse of personal electronic devices promotes cognitive overload, impairs multitasking and lowers performance at all ages.” has been termed the ‘distraction epidemic.’ According to a recent article from the NIH, Mindfulness can be considered the opposite of, and antidote to, distraction. It’s a way of being and living that deepens the quality of our moments. Mindfulness can be defined as focusing our full concentration on any given task, one task at a time. Life only happens in the now, one moment at a time. When we are present, we have more clarity, are more efficient, and able to make better choices in each moment. Clearly, we all need tools to both de-stress and be more effective in all we do. Meditation is one very powerful tool that cultivates focus and mindfulness. In the act of stopping, we learn to be present, fully alert and awake to our lives. John Kabatt- Zinn, meditation teacher and author of the now classic, Wherever You Go, There You Are, states, “People think of meditation as some kind of special activity, but this is not actually correct. Meditation is simplicity itself. A famous Zen joke says: ‘Don’t just do something, sit there.’ Are you able to come to a stop in your life, even for one moment?” We can choose to simplify our lives by making time to develop our ‘tranquility muscle,’ as I like to call it. Learning to stop and quiet our inner landscape cultivates a sense of stillness and peace. I often compare meditation practice to building strength at the gym, cultivating a garden, or any activity that requires patience and consistent
ll right, ever since it was known that the Seattle Seahawks were going to play the Denver Broncos in the championship game making the only two of the fifty states that have legalized marijuana rivals, tweeters everywhere have been having a field day celebrating the fact that they will meet in the Super Bowl, perhaps the strongest reference to cannabis than any other. It doesn’t end there, however. What’s going to happen when the “Bud” commercials come on or the Bud Bowl begins? I would think absolute hilarity will emerge from your living room. What will be the reaction when the announcer says something like, “Wow, Troy, he really took a big hit on that play.” Or, what if he says, “Why doesn’t he pass it?” Then, everyone in the room says, “Yeah, stop “bogarting” pass it, Peyton!” How about if The Doobie Brothers join Bruno Mars at halftime and sing, “Takin’ it to the Streets” and everybody leaves? And, what about the commercials? Every single one will become a reference to “weed.” If an ad comes on with someone talking about their aching “joints,” four out of five folks will light up and commiserate with the spokesman. “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” will send many folks remembering their first experimentation. Any fast food product ad will cause your living room to empty as you and your guests run to your cars and speed away to buy snacks at the nearest convenience store. Then, when there’s 4:20 left in the game and everyone goes wild for no apparent reason, we’ll all know that the Super Bowl will never be the same, again.

What can be done Sunday for everyone to keep a straight face during the greatest game of the season? We could all get it out of our systems now before the big day. Laugh all you want the rest of the week but when the whistle blows for the kickoff, it’s time to get your colors on, get serious and cheer your lungs out for your team. Just because it’s going to
be played in rotten weather in New Jersey, a state that doesn’t even have a team is no reason that you shouldn’t enjoy a wonderful game. It won’t be a waste of time. Now, get out there and get wasted this weekend. It’ll the biggest bowl of all time! Nice Talking to you. tws

Fishing R epoRt THE “WEEKLY” FISHING REPORT FOR JAN. 29 FROM PICABO ANGLER
inter fishing around the Sun Valley area is in full swing. The streamer fishing on Silver Creek is very, very good right now. Cloudy days provide the best opportunity to catch big fish. The low light, coupled with the slightly off-color water, makes these big bank-dwelling fish brave. They tend to come out from under the banks in these conditions and forage for minnows and insects in the center of the river and throughout the troughs and potholes on the river bottom. We have had outstanding luck with sparkle minnows, as well as standard buggers in black and olive. Casting to the far banks and swinging the fly with a periodic twitch will do the trick. Fish a heavy fluorocarbon leader in 1X or 2X and, when the fish hits the fly, hit them back. The lack of stretch in the fluorocarbon leader will plant the hook firmly in the fish’s mouth. If you have a drift boat, it is not a bad idea to bring your drift boat net with you. The long handle will provide you a way to land, unhook and release the fish off the ice shelves without having to get into the river. The only time you probably need to get in the water is if you have a tired fish that needs to be revived, but if you fish heavy leaders you shouldn’t have to play the fish very long. The Big Wood also continues to show its outstanding winter fishing. The Big Wood is a great place to catch numbers of fish with nymphs and dry flies. Silver Creek is the place to catch big winter fish. Anglers are having a great time on the South Fork of the Boise. The catch rate isn’t high, but the quality of the fish is excellent. Big healthy rainbows are taking midge imitations subsurface. If you haven’t been, and are curious about the extreme changes that came in the aftermath of last summer’s fires, now is the time to go. The season will close soon and when it reopens there will more than likely be higher flows and probably some off-color water. Local waterfowl hunters are done for the season, but the upland hunting stays open for many birds until the end of the month. The weather continues to cooperate, so get out there while you still have time!

The Hunger Coalition has received $20,000 from the Gordon R. and Mary M. Howard Family Foundation to support The Hope Garden in downtown Hailey. The Hope Garden is an outdoor classroom for children and adults and a highly productive fruit, vegetable and herb garden. From its inception in 2010 through the 2013 growing season, The Hope Garden has contributed nearly 6,000 pounds of organically grown fruits, vegetables and herbs to The Hunger Coalition’s Mobile Food Bank. “We are so honored to have the generous support of the
Howard Family Foundation,” states Executive Director, Jeanne Liston. “Their gift will go a long way toward ensuring families have fresh food on their tables and the ability to participate in growing and harvesting their own food.” The Hunger Coalition strives to end hunger in our community by providing wholesome food to those in need and by promoting solutions to the underlying causes of hunger through collaboration, education and advocacy.

understanding of art as well as the impact it can play in a community. Inspired by the works of Lyman Whitaker, a sculptor with over 40 years experience who’s installations depend on natural elements for movement, the students donated their time and creativity to complete a leaf to be installed on wind sculptures. Each leaf represents 15 students who were served by The Center’s free gallery tour program, which reached over 1200 Blaine County students in the 20122013 school year.
rtistic inspiration comes in many shapes and sizes. In the Wood River Valley it is no surprise that nature is one of the more popular muses. With high mountaintops, low flowing streams and changing seasons to highlight them all, the opportunities for appreciation are endless and taken in by both local and visiting artists. During the 20122013 school year, Wowstudents and Sun Valley Center of the Arts partnered with Hailey Elementary 3rd grade students to enhance their
The goal of this project was to give the kids a better understanding of how many students The Center reaches annually through their gallery tour program and also to reinforce an appreciation and understanding of public art in a new way. In addition, the students learned that artists can be generous with both their time and talent to benefit the community. Wowstudents looks forward to partnering with Sun Valley Center for the Arts in the 2013-2014 school year and growing the artistic culture among the youths of our valley.

’m pretty sure I have one of the best jobs in the Wood River Valley. As the art teacher for the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, it is my pleasure to look at, talk about, and make art with the talented young movers and shakers of Blaine County. I am so thankful to be a part of a team that is supported and embraced by a community who value the importance of art. The continued generosity of The Center’s donors and patrons allows us all, regardless of age, opportunities to experience and grow through the arts. Being able to visit schools in Ketchum, Hailey, Bellevue and Carey has opened my eyes to what the future holds and I am hopeful. The kids in this valley are so generous with their creativity, ideas, and problem solving. I wish I could bottle it up (like Roald Dahl’s BFG) and store it up high on a shelf for future use. I am thankful to have a job in a place I love, made possible by the generosity of others. GET TO KNOW ‘EM • GET THEIR STATS!

MARIA MARISICH, from page 1 world,” said Nick Maricich, who was a pro skier before becoming Sun Valley’s technical and race supervisor. “She had the talent, the drive. And she was not dissimilar to our father when it came to her need for perfectionism. When she made the decision to do something, she didn’t let anything stand in her way.”
A whole new world
At 17 Maricich made the U.S. Ski Team. She had gotten noticed as a giant slalom skier. But when she blew away U.S. Ski Team downhillers in a national competition in Aspen, speeding through challenging turns, flats and catching air over small dips, her coaches made her a downhill racer, ending her slalom and giant slalom days. “Downhill racing is an exhilarating feeling—like flying. But it can be scary at times,” said Maricich, who speed skated for training. The team became her family, winter and summer. She learned to put closet doors underneath sagging mattresses in French hotels to get a good night’s sleep on the road. A vegetarian, she learned to protest “kein fleisch” (“no meat”) to Germans who reluctantly plied her with sauerkraut and bread instead of bratwurst. “Once in a while we’d go to an American military base and go wild, loading up on peanut butter and oats, nuts, dried fruit and nutritional yeast, with which to make granola,” she said. Maricich and her teammates learned agility steps from a Green Bay Packers football player. They trained in Hawaii, running up mountains. And they stretched their comfort level with scuba diving and mile-long swims in the ocean. “We didn’t have the scientific know-how or technology they do today. They were just beginning to measure strength in legs. And they didn’t talk to us about nutrition at all,” she said.
aricich served as the forerunner/alternate at the Lake Placid Olympics. And at 18 she competed in her first World Cup race at Lake Placid. But just after placing 15th in her second downhill, her inaugural World Cup season came to an end when she tore the ligaments and cartilage in her right knee during a training run. She rationalized it as a lucky break: “It gave me two months to catch up on my studies. Had I not come home, I might not have graduated.” Maricich walked out of the Wood River High School graduating class of 1979 glad she knew where she was going—to training camp that summer and the World Cup circuit following that. But her drive to the top was short-circuited by another ACL tear. “I don’t think I ever mentally or emotionally recovered from that one. I thought things were going great. I had been making the top 10 in my training runs. I was about to break in and God yanked the carpet out from under me and I fell flat on my ass. It was so painful to have it taken away,” she recalled. She soldiered on but with a fear she hadn’t known before. “I was always wondering if something was going to happen. And to win a World Cup, you have to push—beyond 110 percent. I’d probably go 99 percent, but you’ve got to give it 110 percent to win in a world where races are won in hundredths of a second.” She paused, throwing back her mane of blond hair that hangs below her shoulders, her piercing blue eyes that seem to soak in everything around them looking off into space for a moment. Slowly, dimples formed in her cheeks as she offered a wistful
smile. “Somewhere along the way I forgot the thing of trusting my body. I wish I had remembered to do that more.” Still, she enjoyed reasonable success with top-15 finishes. And in January 1983 she surprised everyone with a second-place World Cup downhill at Megeve, France. “I felt like I was in an altered state the whole day. I woke up in a good mood—I just felt different. I showed up a little late for the start, freaking out the coach. And I told him, ‘Don’t worry. I’m okay.’ ” She paused: “I saw that same look in Debbie Armstrong the day she beat Christin Cooper for Olympic gold in the giant slalom, even though Christin had won several World Cups. Debbie was happy-go-lucky that day—she wasn’t stressed out at all.” Maricich’s elation at taking second in her own race was short-lived. The very next race she took a spill, breaking her collarbone and ending her season.
Going into the 1984 Olympics in Sarajevo Maricich was ranked the No. 1 downhiller in the United States—No. 10 in the world. All of the host country Yugoslavia, it seemed, had adopted her as one of their own because of her Yugoslavian heritage. “I had as much attention from Yugoslavians as Americans. Even Yugoslavia’s radio interviewed me,” she said, recounting how distant relatives journeyed from the coast to see her compete. But Maricich’s race was delayed for five days by foggy, blizzard-like, blustery weather. Finally, officials started the race but abruptly cancelled it after a Canadian skier lost a ski in the rutted course. “I had never seen them stop a race before. It made people angry because downhillers are supposed to get two training runs. And, now, six people had received extra training runs,” Maricich said. The next day officials—pressured by TV cameramen—resumed the race, even though the weather was no better than it had been the day before. A couple inches of new snow topped the course but underneath it the race course was like a vertical ice rink.
t was windy, foggy, blustery. Maricich drew the No. 1 run. “All that day I was thinking they were not going to have the race. Even when we went out to the starting gate, I couldn’t get my mind around the idea that we were actually running a race. I thought they’d start it and then stop it, like they had the day before,” she said. Maricich went through the motions, following her normal ritual. She meditated for a few minutes, visualizing the course as she mentally tried to create good intentions. She ran uphill to warm her muscles. She checked her ski bindings, checked the wax on her skis and spent a few minutes talking to her coach. She tugged on her favorite red turtleneck, which she always wore with her red “good luck” ski socks. She adjusted her No. 1 bib, which hung over her skintight red aerodynamic suit and slid into the starting house. At 28 seconds, she buckled the size 3 ski boots that she wore on her size 5 feet. At 15 seconds she pushed her goggles out from her face a couple of times to dispel any lingering fog created by her warmup run. At 10 seconds she planted her poles. She heard the “beep, beep, beep”—a sound that’s ingrained in her consciousness today. And when the stopwatch reached three seconds, she used her broad swimmer-like shoulders to propel her out of the starting gate.
But it still didn’t feel like a race. And her body responded as if she was in a dream. One minute and 15 seconds later she was at the finish line—two miles from the starting gate. She had beaten some of the top downhill racers in the world. But she had arrived two seconds behind the eventual gold medalist Michela Figini of Switzerland. And she knew she hadn’t run her best race. “I remember three-quarters of the way down thinking, ‘This is it. This is the Olympics.’ I felt like I had skied well, but I didn’t race. “I was disappointed in myself that I had convinced myself that we weren’t really racing, that I hadn’t put more into it. I thought, ‘I worked so hard all these years for this one thing— and this is how it turned out,’ ” she said. Still, she finished in 19th place, effectively making her the 19th fastest woman in the world. “It’s hard to make a comeback after the injuries she had. But she was a very solid ski racer and she represented herself well, even though she didn’t have the success she wanted at the Olympics,” said Sun Valley’s Head Alpine Coach Ruben Macaya, who was coaching a U.S. men’s team that included gold and silver medalists Phil and Steve Mahre.
oday, Maricich sees a silver lining to her Olympic race: “If I had had greater success, I would’ve probably stayed in the skiing world, coaching or something. And I love what I’m doing.” Today, Maricich is a Ketchum chiropractor, helping other Olympic athletes achieve their peak performance and helping non-athletes achieve their personal best health. Her 16-year-old son Zac Maricich Siele has intuitively avoided the pressure of having an Olympian for a mom by choos-
Maria Maricich, shown here wearing her U.S. Ski Team jacket) says one of the reasons the 1984 women’s team was unsurpassed for such a long time was because of head coach Michel Rudigoz’s ability to keep morale high. “I don’t think I got a lot of technical skill from him—he’d tell us, ‘You ski like sheet,’ ” she recounted, mimicking the Frenchman who now owns The Christiania restaurant in Ketchum. “But he was good at picking up those who were down.”
ing to compete in freestyle, rather than ski racing. And his mom makes a point of not pressuring him. “I tell him the most important thing is to have fun. And I tell him the story of Debbie Armstrong—how she was out there training every day for the pure love of the sport, whereas some of the team was out there more because they were good at it. “I praise him when he does well and I’m thrilled for him when he does well. But he also knows I love him no matter how he does in skiing. And I tell him: ‘Life will have plenty of interesting things besides skiing in it for you.’ ” Maricich often draws on her Olympic experience to see what worked, and what didn’t, as she problem solves in her work today. “Being an Olympian is a huge honor,” she said. “I have that now— that’s part of who I am. It affects who I am today.” tws

SCOTT MILEY ROOFING JANUARY 29, 2014
Griffith To Be Inducted Into Hall Of Fame BY KAREN BOSSICK immy Griffith never had a formal ski lesson. As a boy who came of age when Sun Valley—America’s first destination ski resort—opened to the world, he simply watched others and emulated them. He learned well, becoming the first Sun Valley native to be named to represent the United States at the Winter Olympics. Griffith, the grandson of a Montana mining superintendent who founded Ketchum in 1879—was one of three Sun Valley skiers chosen to compete at the 1952 Winter Olympics in Oslo, Norway.
But the bright, driven, 22-year-old with a winning

smile never boarded the Pan American flight bound for Oslo. He hit a patch of wind-packed crud on a training run at Alta in December 1951, crashed into a grove of aspen and died of a fatty embolism that formed three days after he broke his right leg. “When we got the news that he was in a coma, Sun Valley’s general manager Pappy Rogers lined up a driver to take my parents

to Salt Lake City that night so they were with him when Jimmy passed away the next morning,” recalled Griffith’s sister, Mary Jane Griffith Conger. A gregarious, dark-haired boy, the Valentine’s Day baby tagged along with his sister as they jumped off low-hanging roofs into snow banks, skated on a tiny ice rink in their yard and took turns riding the family burro. Members of the hickory fraternity, they skied over the top of the 4-foot fence hemming in their yard and climbed up the backside of Dollar Mountain. There they emulated Felix Schaffgotsch—the Austrian skier who “discovered” Sun Valley for Union Pacific—carving figure eights down Julio to the Bitterroot flats. “When Sun Valley came into being, my father got us some modern skis. Before, we had leather straps over our boots and no poles—we sat on big willow sticks going downhill,” Conger recalled.
When Union Pacific cleared its first three runs—Ridge, College and River Run—on Baldy, Mary Jane and Jimmy helped the ski patrol pack them by side stepping on them with their skis in exchange for a free lunch and lift ticket. And in the days before there was a bridge over the Big Wood River, 12-year-old Jimmy joined Ski Patrol Director Nelson Bennett climbing to the top of the 9,150-foot Baldy to get snowdepth readings. They ended their 3,400-foot descent by fording the Big Wood River holding skis, boots and poles overhead. At 15 Jimmy entered the University of Colorado where his sister had excelled as a ski racer for the Buffalos. He learned to ski jump and ski cross-country so his college could field a team that competed in four alpine and Nordic events. A fierce competitor, Griffith was on pace to upset the Italian Zeno Colo in an International FIS downhill at Aspen in 1950. But he fell 50 feet from the finish
line when he jumped 70 feet through the air and smacked into a snow wall along the side of the course. His skis all tangled up, he couldn’t stand. So he dug his elbows into the snow and crawled over the finish line to an 18thplace finish. It was French triple world ski champion Emile Allais, known as “the flying Frenchman,” who seemed to have the most influence on young Jimmy’s skiing. The man who would go on to become the U.S. Men’s coach for the 1952 Olympics taught with the Sun Valley Ski School for a year and his presence ignited the 6-foot, 175-pound Griffith. Griffith won the 1950 national downhill championship—the Harriman Cup—at Sun Valley. Then he swept the downhill, slalom and combined in Chile and Argentina, skiing at speeds of up to 94 miles an hour. Some said he had the potential to be one of this country’s greatest skiers. In April 1951 he entered the
U.S. Air Force as a medical technician—one more step in his long-held childhood dream to become a doctor alongside his mentor, Dr. John Moritz, at Sun Valley. But he secured a leave to pursue his Olympic dreams. Too quickly those dreams were over. Alf Engen, one of the first men to reach Griffith following his accident, quietly took an axe the next day and chopped down the aspen. “You don’t expect someone to die so young,” observed his sister. “He had a perseverance that didn’t stop. He did everything to perfection, whether he was playing ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ on the piano or pursing his Eagle Scout badges.” Griffith was inducted into the National Ski Hall of Fame in 1972. He will be inducted into the Sun Valley Ski Hall of Fame at 5 this afternoon at the nexStage Theatre. tws

Where The Heart Is

ongtime Nordic enthusiasts Bob Disbrow and Kim Kawaguchi can always be found in the thick of things when it comes to honing their Nordic skills—they even took lessons from Norway’s Olympic racers when the team trained in Sun Valley prior to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. But their real contribution to Nordic sports comes out of their pockets—a generosity, along with their hard work, that will earn them a place in the Sun Valley Ski Hall of Fame during today’s induction ceremony at 5 p.m. at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Kawaguchi has been among the women who have championed the Harriman Trail, opening her Elkhorn home on occasion for the annual Harriman Tea. And the couple not only donated a Pisten Bully groomer to Galena Lodge but made a $50,000 donation to the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation. “Their full-time home is Vancouver, B.C., so as Canadians they get no tax write-offs for their donations,” observed Jenny Busdon, who has helped raise funds for Galena Lodge and the North Valley Trails since fundraising began in 1994. “That is why it is so commendable that both Kim and Bob have given so generously to the Help Save Galena campaign and the Power Galena campaign. “They’re big contributors each year at the Galena Benefit and, when asked if they would consider a donation toward buying a new Pisten Bully a few years ago, Bob bought it outright. It is known as ‘Bob’s Bully,’ it has a Canadian flag on its side and, because of its size, it’s stationed at the lodge,” Busdon added.
Alison Owen Kiesel Bradley, shown here looking at her winning time on the scoreboard of the Telemark World Cup in 1978, broke ground for female competitors in Nordic skiing. She won eight U.S. national titles and what was then proclaimed the first FIS World Cup ski race. Learn more about Alison’s amazing Nordic career in the Feb. 5 issue of The Weekly Sun.

eeing American skiers climb the medal podium at the Winter Olympics is commonplace now. But the first American to earn a ski medal in the Olympics was a pigtailed housewife who was born in Tacoma, Wash., but who trained in Sun Valley where she ended up making her home. Gretchen Kunigk Fraser won a gold medal in slalom and the silver medal in combined at the 1948 Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland. She had waited patiently for her chance, as she made the 1940 team only to see the 1940 and 1944 Olympics cancelled because of World War II. She and her husband Don Frasier will be inducted posthumously into the Sun valley Ski Hall of Fame today during a cermony today at 5:00pm.

arl and Carol Holding hardly knew how to ski when they purchased Sun Valley Resort in 1977. But a bloodied schuss down Bald Mountain during the big drought of 1976-77 convinced them that the resort needed vastly improved snowmaking if it were to thrive during periods of drought. The two armed Sun Valley with the world’s biggest and best snow gun arsenal. They covered the mountain with high-speed quads.
Then they placed some of skidom’s finest mountain lodges on Bald and Dollar mountains—from Seattle Ridge Lodge perched atop 9,150-foot Bald Mountain to the Warm Springs and River Run lodges at the bottom and Carol’s Dollar Mountain Lodge on Dollar Mountain. As a crowning touch, they remodeled the historic Roundhouse Restaurant and built a gondola to reach it. Earl didn’t do all this with the intention of realizing a payback, reflected former Ski School Director Hans Muehlegger as he took visitors on a ski tour of the mountain a few years ago. “He did it because he loved Sun Valley,” Muehlegger said. tws

hen Inge Wegge and Jom Ranum decided to go surfing, the young Norwegians bypassed the warm waves of some of the world’s best surfing towns, like Hanalei, Kauai, and Florianopolis, Brazil. Instead, they packed some expired food their local grocery stores were about to throw out and headed to a remote Arctic island off the coast of northern Norway. There, they built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that washed up on shore and spent the next nine months skiing and surfing in the glow of the Northern Lights. “North of the Sun,” which also touches on the wider impact of garbage, even in remote, uninhabited environments, will be among the films that will be shown Friday and Saturday during the 2014 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Ketchum.

n a warm sunny day during the Christmas holidays, a familiar couple joined hundreds of Nordic skiers and young families sledding and playing outside the rustic Galena Lodge 24 miles north of Ketchum. A line of would-be diners, anxious to partake of lodge manager Don Shepler’s Grownup Grilled Cheese Sandwich piled high with bacon, apples, caramelized onions and Havarti cheese, Curried Chicken Wraps, Idaho Lamb Burgers and Asian Chicken Salad, stood patiently on the wooden deck. Shepler’s wife Erin Zell quickly seated Sen. John Kerry and his wife Teresa Heinz inside the lodge underneath a picture of the late Sen. John Heinz. If it hadn’t been for Teresa Heinz, there likely would have been no Galena Lodge. She and her three sons saved the picturesque mountain lodge from the wrecking ball in the mid-1990s by donating the $325,000 necessary to purchase the lodge in memory of her late husband who had died in a helicopter crash. Heinz reaffirmed her commitment to the lodge at Saturday’s Galena Lodge Benefit, offering up $75,000 to make sure the lodge is around “20 years from now and 20 years beyond.”

etchum audiences have helped send up to 40 children in Satipo, a city of 20,000 on the eastern side of the Peruvian Andes, to school with their attendance at the Banff Film Festival. Michael Boge, a former Sun Valley Ski Patrolman who organizes the film festival in Ketchum, Sandpoint and Coeur d’Alene, started using proceeds from ticket sales to help families with no means to put their children in school eight years ago. His wife Anavel, who grew up in Satipo, and daughter Laura procure the school supplies, shoes and school uniforms in Lima. They have to get it right the first time—you can’t just run down the street in Satipo to purchase another pair of shoes. Willy Vasquez, who is the “man on the ground,” checks students’ grades to ensure they’re keeping up with their studies. This year Laura’s second-grade teacher from Sandpoint had her class make mobiles of winter activities in Idaho to take to the children. The Peruvian kids will respond with crafts educating the Sandpoint children about their jungle area. Next year, Boge says, he and his supporters plan to figure out ways to send kids who have gone through the Peruvian school system on to higher education. One—Rosa Vivanca—wants to become an accountant. “Our long-term goal is to bring the families of these 40 students out of poverty,” said Boge. tws

Ask the Guys
Dear Classified Guys, With the current real estate market, my wife and I thought it would be a great opportunity to find a new home. This time we wanted a more country-like setting with some nice garden areas. It wasn't long before we found one and immediately fell in love with the place. Things were going very smooth at first. We agreed on a price and closing date with the owners, but then it got complicated. It seems this couple really loved their dog, Barney, a basset hound. When he passed away, they placed his remains in the flower garden and turned it into a memorial. Now they want rights to keep the garden intact, the right to visit the garden up to four times a year and hold a memorial service for Barney each spring. We love the place, but this seems ridiculous. It would be quite an inconvenience for us. Do you think these are realistic requests or are these owners just crazy?

Additionally, you've come across a family who has trouble letting go of their departed pet as well. Carry: Regardless of how unrealistic it may seem to you, Barney was important enough to the sellers for them to attach visitation rights to the sale of their home. That’s just a stipulation you’ll have to settle in order to purchase the house. Cash: However, that doesn't mean you need to agree with their
requests. It may be possible that the sellers don't realize the imposition they are placing upon new owners. You should be honest and share your concerns with them. Carry: If you haven't already tried, you could also suggest a compromise. For example, you could offer to have Barney moved to a more convenient location. They can create a resting place for him at their new home or at a pet cemetery where they can visit. Cash: If you're truly interested in this property, then it's worth working with the sellers and coming to a resolution. Otherwise, you might need to look for a different country home, hopefully one where the owners didn't have pets!
A beloved pet can be like one of the family. So it is no surprise that many people memorialize their pet in the same manner they memorialize a member of the family. The oldest pet cemetery in the world is located in Hartsdale, NY, just outside New York City and dates back to 1896. Back then, a veterinarian named Dr. Samuel Johnson offered his apple orchard as a resting place for a bereaved friend's dog. Now over 100 years later, this cemetery is the resting place for over 70,000 pets.
Let's face it. It's a great feeling to be greeted by your dog wagging its tail or curling up with your cat on a comfy chair when you come home. It's one of the many reasons over 74 million people own a dog and more than 88 million people own a cat. And sometimes one just isn't enough. Nearly 37% of dog owners have more than one and 56% of cat owners have two or more. With this many pets around, it's no wonder they can steal our hearts. •

When my wife and I were looking for a home, our real estate agent was very good. We communicated well and actually found a house that looked terrific on our first trip out. At first I was a little hesitant, since it was located next to an old cemetery from a neighboring church. However after walking the grounds, I realized it would actually be a very quiet neighborhood. Our agent told us that the house was in great shape as the owners took care of it until they moved on. "That's good," my wife said. "And where did they move to?" Realizing she misunderstood, he looked at the cemetery and replied, "Well, they're right next door." (Thanks to Andy J.)
