For 27 years, Charlie Meyers has been the leading ski journalist in the Rocky Mountain region. Since joining the Denver Post in 1966, he has been constantly on the Colorado ski scene, recording all the news from each Colorado ski resort. His accounts of six Olympic Games and many other international events brought the sport and skiing competition alive for Denver Post readers. Charlie was the first person to win the Harold Hirsch Award, given to the nation's leading ski journalist, four times. He is the only two-time winner of the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding contributions to Colorado skiing. He has received many other citations for service to skiing and the ski industry. Charlie is no stranger to controversy, unearthing both problems and solutions that have brought stability and growth to the sport. As one of the nation's top ski journalists, Charlie has written with an infectious enthusiasm that has heightened the passion many thousands of people feel for the sport of skiing today. (Deceased)
