A name that has long been familiar to KPCW listeners, and a former extreme skier now living in Salt Lake, were inducted last weekend into the U.S. National Ski Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame is based in Ishpeming, Michigan. Its director Justin Koski said they got 72 nominations this year. Some 300 voters across the country narrowed that down to eight inductees.
Among those were Tom Kelly, a long-time spokesman for U.S. Ski & Snowboard and Kristen Ulmer a former big-mountain extreme skier.
