Author and lecturer John Lundin will discuss the history of Sun Valley Resort, its time under Union Pacific, and the roles of two individuals who played key roles in making Sun Valley the force it was in our skiing history: Averell Harriman, Chairman of the Board of Union Pacific Railroad, and Alf Engen, the dominant ski jumper of his generation who played an important role at Sun Valley in its early years. Registration and proof of vaccination are required to attend in person. The program will also be livestreamed on Vimeo.
