SMS Co-Founder Jim Sechrest Surfs Park City, Utah - 1985

#throwbackthursday - Jimmy Sechrest pops a frontside air in 1985 during the National Ski Areas Associations annual Mountain Managers conference in Park City, Utah. We were riding in the demo-zone where all the ski-area operators were testing the latest snowcats and grooming equipment. This shot was taken near, and possibly even on the exact same place where Park City’s superpipe now sits. Jimmy gettin’ first tracks on the sidehits before skiers knew what to do with them!!
