Park City Stories - Dan Steffen

A Ski Interim Group
Credit Dan Steffen

40 years ago, in an act of self-preservation, long time ski school instructor Dan Steffen developed the Ski Interim program – a 4 week college course that taught college students from all across the country the Fundamentals of Skiing at the Park City Ski Resort.

   For about 700-hundred dollars, student skiers could ski for half a day and spend the rest of the day in the classroom learning about the evolution of skiing as well as the science of avalanches AND get college credit.

Al Davis got involved in the early years of the White Pine Nordic Touring Center when he didn’t like the new rules that had been issued by the Park City Ski Area's then ski school director Stein Eriksen.

One winter, back in the mid-1970s, Davis – who had taught plenty of ski lessons but had never been on Nordic skis before - only had to take one thrilling ride down Thaynes Canyon to give up his locked down heel bindings in favor of three pinning.  In this week’s Park City Story, produced and edited by KPCW's Leslie Thatcher, Al Davis remembers that fateful ski tour…
