It was my great honor for over ten years to film one of the greatest legends in skiing, Stein Eriksen. Deer Valley Resort and The Stein Eriksen Lodge became like a second home to me in the winter, or "vinter" as Stein teases. We did three films together. Stein is a complete professional to work with and truly one of the most rare and beloved skiers. Not only is he an Olympic champion and "Sir" Stein, but he became a true and good friend.
Stein taught me more about skiing and more about the comraderie behind skiing than any other skier. It was my great joy to film him and create a skiing portrait of the most unique skier to ever grace a mountain. Mere words cannot describe what Stein is like. I made the film so that you too, could get a glimpse into this great Ski Legend.
All my best to you,
"The quality of Terri Marie's appreciation of ski history is exemplary. She shows that she has grasped the importance of recording in a thorough and heartfelt manner the personality of Stein Eriksen and of John Jay, icons of American ski history. Her approach, far from being solely academic, brings alive the way they have appeared to their fellow skiers in their lifetime, something that is rare in the recorded annals of ski history.
Her invocation of Stein Eriksen's humanity and his superb professionalism in her speech and in the film she showed, The Heart of Skiing, at the International Skiing History Association dinner in honor of Stein...and annual meeting at Deer Valley was an outstanding example of artistry and passion in the pursuit of a true and revealing historical record."
