The Legend of Jumping Scot Schmidt

The Legend of Jumping Scot Schmidt

We dug into the archives to take a look back at the 1986 SnoWorld article that documents Scot Schmidt's transition from B-circuit ski racer to daring, world-renowned freeskier and skilebrity.

Most skiers who have become identifiable by more than family and friends have won gold medals or set speed records. Scot Schmidt gained recognition by leaping off cliffs.

For Scot, the route to the edge of a cliff began in Helena, Montana, and had its roots in a promising racing career. After graduating from high school in 1979, Scot moved west to Squaw Valley to continue the search for points and ever higher rungs on the competition ladder.

Meet Zudnick, The Wonder Dog

From Warren Millers SnowWorld Archives - 1988 Escape To Ski

Up in the high mountains of southwest Colorado – in the old mining town of Telluride – “Zudnick” is just another good old dog. You know the kind: He hops the first chairlift in the morning and hits the steep and the deep all day long, following (or leading) his master, Scott Kennett, down the fabled ski resort’s well respected drops.

That may be commonplace in the town Butch Cassidy once shot up, but in the real world, a hot skiing pooch is news. Zudnick, in film parlance at least, is now officially dubbed “a Wonder Dog.”
