J. Stanley Mullin
(1907-2000)
Stan Mullin, a pioneer in the
California Ski Association, along
with Corty Hill, Frank Ferguson,
Sepp Benedikter and Andy Hauk,
began skiing in 1931. He skied in
California before the first lifts in 1940
and served as a Southern Skis club
officer before and after his service in
World War II. As a Lieutenant,
USNR, he served on Atlantic
submarine patrols aboard cruisers
and destroyers and saw action in the
invasions of Normandy, Southern
France, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Stan
Mullin served skisport for more than
four decades: vice-president and
director of USSA and Far West Ski
Association, U.S. delegate to F.I.S.
(1951-67), vice-president of F.I.S
(1961-67) and the chairman of its
eligibility committee (1961-67). The
eligibility certification committee
was destined to make numerous
difficult decisions as de facto
professionals and national athletes
whose full time assignment was
training and competing dogged the
F.I.S. and the Olympics. Stan was
awarded the highest individual
honor of the USSA, the Julius Blegen
Award, in 1962. The Far West's
" Man-of-the-Year Award " was
established in 1966 in Stan's honor.
Stan was inducted into the National
Ski Hall Of Fame in 1973.
Since the 1930's, Jimmie Nunn has been involved in the development of
skiing in the state of Arizona. Jimmie, Architect of City and Slopes, was
presented the FWSA's Snowsports Builder Award at the 2016 Convention.
His family was present as he received the Award.

Steve Reneker
Steve has skied since 1974 and holds National Ski Patrol number 185685.
He patrolled Mt. High California for 23 years, now at Snow Summit/Big Bear
for 18 years with a two year stint at Keystone, Colorado in between. Following
the tutelage of his close friend Dave Tollakson starting in 1981, he instructed
Mountainering for 13 years. Three mountaineers were making a difficult
training climb April 9, 1994 on the Snowcreek route up Mt. San Jacinto.
The last man up was Dave Tollakson, who lost his footing near the top and
tumbled several hundred feet to his death. Steve fulfilled a vow to his wife,
Lynn, to take Dave's ashes to his seventh summit, Everest, the top of the world
and there release them.
