Lowell Skoog received his second ISHA Award from ISHA President Seth Masia. This award is for Written in the Snows: Across Time on Skis in the Pacific Northwest.
Ingrid Christophersen received an Ullr Award for To Heaven’s Heights: An Anthology of Skiing in Literature. A retired ski coach and FIS delegate, she travelled from her farm near Brighton, England. ISHA Chairman Rick Moulton presents the trophy.
Mountaineer Chic Scott won a Skade Award, plus the first John Fry Award for Excellence, for his book Mount Assiniboine: The Story. He travelled from Banff, Alberta.
