Former UAF student Qingping Yü has met some of the best skiers in the world through her work in the international alpine skiing industry. Yü has skied all over the world, but she’s loyal to Moose Mountain in the Goldstream Valley where she learned to ski. Yü, 27, now works preparing China for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics as the sports manager for the Olympic game’s freestyle ski and snowboard program. She’s also sales director for Chinese ski and ski tourism business FreeSkiZone. She spends much of her time chasing the winter to different mountains around the world. Here Yü displays a book in the UAF Rasmuson Library Wednesday morning, November 8, 2017 on the history of skiing in China by Shan Zhaojian, 79, considered the father of modern skiing in China. Shan, in addition to being China’s first cross-country skiing national champion, is a historian who has researched 10,000-year-old cave paintings and concluded China is the birthplace of skiing.
