Emmett “Bud” Wright

In 1920, Emmett “Bud” Wright made his living skiing, but not as a ski patrolman or ski racer. Bud worked as a lineman for the local telephone company, traveling the mountains surrounding Park City on his 10 foot-long, handmade skis, repairing the phone lines. When Bud broke one of his skis, he was forced to use skis of two different lengths because no ski shops existed in Park City.

Located on historic Park City Main Street in Park City, Utah.
