ULLR Ski Club Sets Activities

By DAVE ANDREWS
Michigan's ULLR Ski, Club,
named after the Norwegian God
of skiing, and headed by President
Art Daniels, has planned another
full year of activities.
The club, formed with the in-
tention of promoting skiing and
encouraging friendship among
skiers, has in the past years made
trips all around the country, with
the sole purpose being to ski. This
year will not be an exception.
Trip to Canada
According to Daniels, the club4
has already made arrangements
for an excursion during the se-
mester break to the Mount Trem-

'ORMS--This Jumper is showing the two basic forms used in ski Jumping. The Jumper on the left is using a fish style. His arms
tended back like the fins of a fish. This style was developed in Finland and cuts wind resistance. The jumper on the right is using
a that could be called a spread eagle. His arms are extended out, but to the side. He has just come off the largest artificial ski
n the world at Iron Mountain where the longest ride ever taken is over 300 feet.

blant ski area, located in the Lar-
entian Mountains in Canada's
Province of Quebec.
Another trip, planned for the
spring vacation, will involve the
internationally famous ski re-
sort at Aspen, Colo. This has
become an annual event looked
forward to with great anticipa-
tion by the club.
However, Daniels stated, these
long trips aren't possible for many
members of the club, so we gen-
erally make shorter ,trips into
northern Michigan on the week-
ends, and often arrange one-day
outings at the closer ski clubs
near Detroit and Flint.
Constant Activity
"Usually someone is going north
every weekend," he stated. "We go
whenever possible, as the club
functions to serve the members,"
he said. "You might call us a
spontaneous club."
Generally these weekend jaunts

end up at Boyne Mountain, near
Boyne City, Caberfae, near Cadil-
lac, or at Nubs Nob, near Petoskey.
The club, however, while it does
try to be as active "on the slopes"
during the season as possible, also
offers many advantages to the ski-
ers who are not able to get away'
as often as they would like.
Weekly Meetings
Weekly meetings are held in the
Union on Tuesdays, and Fridays
often find ski club members gath-
ering for a conditioning session
at the IM- Building.
Tips for the skiers are offered
at the meetings, plus information
on the latest ski equipment, mov-
ies on topics of interest, and in
general a program of discussion
on future events and program-
ming.
As a further service, the club
regularly osts, on its bulletin
board in the basement of the'Un-
ion. weather and skiing condi-
tion information, and also posts
a sign-up list for drivers needing
riders and riders needing drivers
interested in going north for the,
weekend of fun and relaxation.
Enthusiastic describes the club

and its attitude perfectly, for
while many of the members are
expert skiers, a warm welcome is
also extended to beginners. Help
and instruction are easily ob-
tained for newcomers to the sport
from the experienced, which lends
a feeling of unity to the club..
But this is not to say that all
that the better skiers do is teach.
The club also sends a team to par-
ticipate in the Michigan Intercol-
legiate Ski Association meet, held
annually at a northern resort.
The best in competition is found
at this meet as nearly all of the
Michigan colleges enter teams,
including entrants from the Upper
Peninsula's hot spots, Michigan
Tech, and Northern Michigan Col-
lege. At this meet, competition is
held in nearly every phase of ski-
ing except jumping.
The Michigan club, growing rap-
idly with its enthusiasm, presently
boasts a membership of about. 55
members, but expects to increase
to "around 100 before the season
ends," said Daniels.
They're an active and hard
working group, so don't bet against
it.

If you're looking for a different
way to spend a weekend "getting
away from the books," you'll find
there is a winter sport to be en-
joyed, as the song goes, ". .. back
in your own back yard."
.The sport? Michigan has 69 ski
parks-more than any state east
of the Rocky Mountains-to quali-
fy for the skiing capital of the
midwest.
"Water Wonderland"
In addition, ice fishing, skating,
and tobogganing combine their
tourist attraction to make a Mich-
igan winter a true frozen "Water
Wonderland."
In recent years tourist officials
have reported that the majority
of skiers are of the younger gen-
eration. However, skiing has also
become a family sport as more
and more people find that winter
vacations at ski resorts can be fun.
While the Mackinac Bridge pro-
vides easier access to Upper Penin-
sula slopes, greater use is made
each year of the areas located in
the Lower Peninsula. The East
Michigan Tourist Association re-
ports that there are 21 resorts in
the eastern half of Michigan.
Black Mountain
Heading the last as one of the
finest northern vacation retreats is
the world-famous Black Mountain
Ski Area, located about equidistant
from Cheboygan., Onaway and
Rogers City. This area includes
eight slopes plus an area for the
novices.
Some University student organi-
zations annually plan winter expe-
ditions at one of the "Winter Won-
derland" resorts. The local New-
man Club plans a skiing party to
Nubs Nob Resort on Boyne Moun-
tain near Petosky, Michigan, Feb-
ruary 2-7.
Although in the past good skiing
depended on the co-operation of
Mother Nature, snow making ma-
chines provide just the right
amount and type of snow regard-
less of the weather. The Houghton
Lake Snow Bowl, one of the larg-
est parks in northeastern- Michi-
gan with 24 slopes and 11 tows, is
one of the popular areas having
this facility.
For those students not able to
drive to these areas, Greyhound
Lines and North Central Airlines
provide service to many of the
snow and ice fun cities.

OLYMPIC TRYOUT-Here's a ski-jumper's view from the top of
Suicide Hill at Ishpeming winter sports park in the upper penin-
sula. Ishpeming is the birthplace of amateur recreational skiing in
America and also is the home of the National Ski Museum and
Hall of Fame.
