The following are some ideas for future research.
An important part of the project is to interview ski mountaineers
past and present. I divide these into two groups: persons active
before 1965 and persons active after 1965. My first priority is
to talk to skiers and mountaineers in the first group. Then I
will turn my attention to the latter group.
For a list of people of interest,
For people I have not been able to locate,
I've reviewed most of the books I've collected.
Eventually, I may review lower-priority books.
(See hold list.)
For books I am seeking,
I've reviewed thousands of pages of periodicals from the early
1900s to the present time.
(See reference list.)
For periodicals I am seeking,
The following (lower priority) periodicals may also contain
I've reviewed records of the Mountaineers (Seattle), the
Cascadians (Yakima), the Mt Baker Club (Bellingham), and the
Alpine Roamers (Wenatchee). I haven't been able to find records
from the Washington Alpine Club (Seattle), although I know its
members were active in ski mountaineering in the 1930s. Other
clubs to contact for records include:
(try Mountaineers or BCMC)
Sierra Club Bulletin
(available at TPL)
(available at Mountaineers)
Western Skier (repository unknown)
Special collections include manuscripts, scrapbooks, photo
albums, journals, and clippings files. For a list of
collections I've found,
These are some of the best sources and I'm continually
looking for more collections to review.
Other sources that may be of interest include:
- B.C. Mountaineering Club (Vancouver)
- Olympians Hiking Club (Grays Harbor)
- Olympic Ski Club (Port Angeles)
- Yakima Ski Club (Yakima)
To suggest other people, organizations or reference sources, contact
- U.S. Forest Service (history of forest roads, cabins and pioneer
- Washington State Highway Department (history of pass highways)
