John W. Lundin is a Seattle lawyer who learned to ski on Snoqualmie Pass using wooden skis, leather boots and cable bindings and riding rope tows. He was a member of Sahalie Ski Club, which began on Snoqualmie Pass in 1931, and has homes in Seattle and Sun Valley, Idaho. His mother, Margaret Odell Lundin, learned to ski on Mount Rainier and Snoqualmie Pass in the 1930s, was faculty advisor to Seattle's Queen Anne High School Ski Club from 1938 to 1941 and took her students on the ski train to the Milwaukee Ski Bowl at Hyak for free ski lessons courtesy of the Seattle Times. Lundin has written extensively about early skiing in Washington and the history of the Wood River Valley in Idaho, where his great-grandparents settled in 1881. He is a frequent lecturer on history topics in both states and is currently writing several other history books.
