2/8/18 — Olympic Events; Remembering Ted Johnson

Photo above courtesy Snowbird; neglected to report that ‘Bird co-founder Ted Johnson passed away Monday, Jan. 29, 2018, at the age of 91. Johnson was critically injured when hit by a drunk driver while crossing a street in California. According to a statement from the resort, “Johnson first came to Utah chasing the legendary Little Cottonwood Canyon powder and ended up working at Alta in the 1960’s. He quickly realized the potential for a second resort in the canyon and began buying up mining claims and looking for investors. A chance meeting with a Texan named Dick Bass began a partnership that resulted in Snowbird’s opening in December 1971.” The Regulator Johnson trail was named in his honor.
