About the Author: Dick Dorworth has skied and climbed in Europe, Asia, Alaska and South America; but he’s spent most of his life in the mountains of the West. He ski raced extensively from 1950 through 1965 and set the world record for speed on skis in Portillo, Chile in 1963. Dick taught and coached skiing for years, served as coach of the U.S. Ski Men’s Team. and later Director of the Aspen Mountain Ski School. Dorworth’s writing has appeared in Ski, Skiing, Powder, Snow Country, Mountain Gazette, Men’s Journal, Climbing, New West, Mariah, Wild Duck Review, Summit, and Backpacker. Dorworth is a reporter and regular columnist for the Idaho Mountain Express in Ketchum, his home base. Most winter days he skis, either on his favorite mountain, Baldy, or in the backcountry. In summer he climbs. He is a registered Democrat who thinks his party needs more calcium in its diet. Although a member of the Sierra Club, he thinks Deep Ecology is closer to the mark. Night Driving, Dorworth’s first book was published in 2007 by First Ascent Press.
