John Lundin Honored by International Ski History Association
Sunday, February 21, 2021


Ketchum historian and author John Lundin has received a Skade Award from the International Ski History Association for his newest book “Skiing Sun Valley: A History from Union Pacific to the Holdings.”

His book “Sun Valley, Ketchum and the Wood River Valley” received an honorable mention.

The Skade Award is a highly prestigious award in the ski history arena. Lundin’s was awarded for "outstanding work published in book form that is focused on ski history.”

Lundin said the year of quarantining at home has been one of his most productive times as he published three books in six months. They include the two that received awards.

The third, “Ski Jumping in Washington State: A Nordic Tradition,” comes out this month. Lundin wrote it as the centerpiece of an exhibit on ski jumping he is helping to put together for the Washington State Ski and Snowboard Museum on Snoqualmie Pass in Washington State and the National Nordic Museum in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.

Lundin’s books are available at the Sun Valley Lodge and Gift Shop, Chapter One Bookstore, Iconoclast Books, Ketchum Kitchens, Farmer’s Daughter, Amazon and Arcadia Publishing.

He is donating his profits from both Sun Valley books to the Center for Regional History at The Community Library in Sun Valley.

Lundin’s first book was “Early Skiing on Snoqualmie Pass.” It was awarded “Outstanding Regional Ski History Book of 2017” by the International Skiing History Association at its annual meeting at Squaw Valley, Calif. In 2018.
