Marty Hall, Durham, NH.: Marty Hall was a major force in bringing U.S. cross-country skiing to the international stage. He was the first U.S. women’s national coach to support a team at FIS competition outside of the U.S. in 1970. Hall played a key role in coaching Bill Koch to America’s first (and only) cross-country Olympic medal in 1976. Hall was also a noted innovator with waxing techniques such as base sanding and applying mohair strips to skis. In 1981 he published “One Stride Ahead: An Expert Guide to Cross Country Skiing.”
