Who was Bill Tugman?

Bill taught with the Eaglecrest Ski School from 1982-1986. He was killed in a boating accident in 1987. He was known for being a likeable, happy-go-lucky guy who enjoyed having fun. He loved skiing and ski instructing. He was great with kids - probably because he was just a big kid himself!

More importantly, he loved doing goofy things on his skis - the goofier the better! Tugboat Alley was named after Bill Tugman.

The Tugman Race is a goofy way to have fun on skis or a snowboard. The Bill Tugman Memorial Race was started in 1988 by Doug Peel and Terry Hinkley as a way to remember Bill. Each year the course is different but the goal is still the same: to have as much fun as possible on skis or snowboards. With it’s Hoops of Fire, Dreaded Pole Forest, Laundry Chute and Tunnel of Doom, the race is something Bill would have loved.
