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, click here. For people I have not been able to locate, click here.


I've reviewed most of the books I've collected. (See bibliography.) Eventually, I may review lower-priority books. (See hold list.) For books I am seeking, click here.


I've reviewed thousands of pages of periodicals from the early 1900s to the present time. (See reference list.) For periodicals I am seeking, click here. The following (lower priority) periodicals may also contain useful information:


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:
