Speaker Series: Local Ski Legend Dan Egan

The Squam Lakes Association welcomes Dan Egan, local ski legend and US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame inductee, to speak at the first Squam Speaker Series of 2017. Egan’s talk will be held at the Squam Lakes Association on Wednesday, January 25th at 7:00PM.

Dan Egan has an established reputation being one of the most influential adventure skiers of all time. Egan, along with his brother John, were critical in the development of “extreme” sports known for their ski-movie scene in the ‘80s and ‘90s, traveling to the most remote areas of the world in search of a high-country adventure, and featured on the Discovery Channel, CBS, NBC, ESPN, and ABC’s “Good Morning America”.

Dan opened up the world to helicopter skiing, researched adventure tourism for the Canadian government, and created more than 100 episodes of his “Wild World of Winter” television series, which aired for over 15 years reaching over 70 million viewers. In 1989, Egan launched the Egan Entertainment Network, Inc. (EEN) to market and promote skiing around the world.

Locally, Egan was executive director of New Hampshire’s SKI 93 Association from 1993 to 1998 and general manager of Tenney Mountain from 2002 to 2004. Currently, Egan leads and participates in adventure travel trips, is co-founder of Skiclinics.com, and coaches the X-team Advanced Ski Clinics all over the world.
