Caption only: Deseret News Ski School shaping up

People stopped, looked and no doubt wondered why all those skiers were walking around the grassy slopes of Sugarhouse Park on their skis on such a bright, sunny day Thursday. And no, they weren't expecting snow. It was the first training session for instructors for the 50th session of the Deseret News Ski School. Between 75 and 100 instructors from the University of Utah will teach this year. All instructors are required to attend one of the sessions, which are taught by ski professionals from Alta. The first class of the ski school will be Nov. 15 at the park. Registration will be limited to 1,000 people. The school is open to those ages 8 and up. For information call 237-2135 or 942-3100.
