Parimutuol of Omaha's "Swinging Kingdom" with Marlin Jerkin. By Jim Miller Park West Touring School Instructor ' The Snowmobile Monster -Part II ' ,' As I have said before, it is not the snowmobiles that I dislike. Actually, most are friendly, down-home down-home folks. It's their darn machines that I hate. I think that even a non-skier will agree, snowmobiles are a noisy, smelly, dangerous vehicle that really has no place in the woods. I can see them as work vehicles in emergencies' and telephone line repairs, etc., but for the single purpose of roaring through our quiet mountains, wasting precious gas and disturbing life, I'm afraid that I cannot see its value. Their presence will completely dominate a natural area. Two-cycle Two-cycle engines pour out an obnoxious, poisonous smoke, while the noise sends all living creatures currying for shelter and safety. I've even seen people hunting bobcats with dogs and snowmobiles - hardly a sporting venture in my opinion. Ah, to be in Norway where one sees a snowmobile only as often as I use Red Klister in January. . N But we are in the United States, where machines are the rule of the land, not people as in Norway. What can we do about it? Well, although I have mellowed out extremely in my old age, I will help do my part in preserving this beautiful land for people, by whatever means necessary. Maybe not the Monkey Wrench Gang or Edward Abbey style but for sure some sort of action is in order.' Utah has no designated wilderness areas (the high Uintas are classified as primitive, not necessarily a permanent situatiorUndiheri Are hq; easily; aGcessa&le winter tt$ifel. fi$a$ ifuftlljA-e that all roadless areas remain roadless, and that more areas be set aside for nonmotorized vehicles in winter. Utah's greatest asset is her wild country aesthetically and financially. With ski touring getting more and more popular (someday it will be even bigger than Alpine skiing) and with backpacking, climbing and hiking close behind, Utah cannot afford to waste away the landscape by building useless roads, power plants and dams. Utah's wild country, if preserved, will bring in more money than all the Uinta oil wells, Kaiparowits power plants and Glen Canyon Dams combined. Don't believe me? Take a look at Park City, seems as though the whole of Orange County is in Utah to "get away from the Rat. Race." How about setting aside some wild country before it is too late? How about giving the people an opportunity to enjoy nature at her quiet best? Let's start with a winter area for ski touring and snowshoeing only. I have already suggested the Little South Fork of the Provo River Drainages, located outside of Woodland, want to see it? I will .lead a tour into this area, for all interested enough to ski it, on Tuesday, Jan. 13. Call me at 649-9663, Ext. 77 for any questions, or meet at the Park West Resort at 9 a.m. to form car pools. The touring school will rent you skis at a reduced rate for this tour if you need them . After skiing, we will visit the District Ranger Station and let our views be known. Perhaps if we all work and ski together we can get some valuable country saved for future generations to enjoy.

Located at Resort CenterSXver Mill House 1284 Empire Avenue Park City, Utah 84060 , (801) 649-M8I - , . tin , by Bob Kassow Director of the Stein Eriksen Touring School Make Those Skis Really Work for You Most ski tourers spend years walking around the mountains expending enormous amounts of energy instead of sliding gliding those skis allowing them to do-most of the work. "Efficiency" "Ef-ficiency" and "conservation of energy" are key words in cross-country skiing. To become more efficient most skiers must first improve their balance in order to put all of the weight on that forward gliding ski. For the next four or five times that you ski, whether it be on a prepared track or on a semi-traveled semi-traveled touring track, spend a half-hour skiing without using your poles. Grasp them in the center so the they're balanced. Then ski using a smooth, pendulum-like arm swing and the glide and thrust from your legs. Be conscious of shifting your weight completely from ski to ski and of swinging your arms to the rear as far as they will go. Be loose, RELAX. STOP. Take a DEEP breath. Exhale sharply. Feel how relaxed your shoulders and arms are, That relaxed loose feeling is what you're striving for. This exercise will not only develop better balance but it will also loosen up those shoulder and neck muscles which often become tight with improper pole use.
