Mark your calendars for the 2015 Waterville Valley Hall of Fame dinner and induction on Saturday, March 14, 2015. The Waterville Valley Conference Center will come alive as friends, family and guests pay homage to some of the greats of Waterville Valley.
The Waterville Valley Hall of Fame Committee announced the class of 2015: Ruth Antonides, Todd and Cynthia Baldwin, the trio of Ron Boulay, Richard Knight & Richard Giuliano, and Nick and Susie Preston.
What a class!
Ruthie Antonides was one of the first employees hired by Waterville Valley Resort founder, Tom Corcoran, when he formed the Waterville Company. Ruthie was the mountain operations administrative assistant and the behind the scenes off-hill organizer of all the World Cup races. She also had a strong hand in organizing and implementing the Jack Williams Ski Race for Wednesday’s Child, The Governors Ski Invitational, Christa McAuliffe Ski Invitational along with numerous other events. She was a very active owner at Village Condominium, and served on many town committees. Ruthie continued to work tirelessly at the mountain until she passed away in 2005.
In the late 1960’s, Todd and Cynthia Baldwin built and operated the Tecumseh Inn (now the Silver Fox Inn). They also owned and operated the Tecumseh Service Company, a property management and construction company. Todd and Cynthia were also very instrumental in organizing and participating in the annual Gusto Cup for years.
Ron Boulay, Dick Knight and Dick Giuliano have been members of the Waterville Valley Ski School for 44 to 47 years! Working under the direction of the resort’s first ski school director, Paul Pfosi, the three amigos began what has unquestionably been one of the most prolific and passionate careers in all of Waterville Valley history! Ron Boulay has spent every weekend teaching little kids to ski for 47 years. Dick Guiliano began teaching in Waterville Valley in 1972 and became a supervisor in the adult ski school. Dick Knight also joined the Waterville Valley Ski School in 1972 and organized great programs like the WV Mountain Brigade for kids ages 10-15.
Nick and Suzi Preston have been involved in Freestyle for four decades. Nick was the Director of Freestyle Skiing at the Waterville Valley BBTS/SEF for 35 years. Nick and Suzi have owned and operated the Mountain Fare Inn in Campton since 1982, and they have owned and operated Freestyle America, the longest continuously operating freestyle camp in the U.S., since 1983.
