Nikolai Anikin Sr. Passes Away

Postby Montana » Sun Nov 15, 2009 8:19 pm

I just read a report on SkinnySki that Nikolai Annikin Sr. passed away last Friday after a 2 year battle with cancer.

Nikolai Sr. presented one of his signature 2 day dry-land clinics at Camp Sagawau near Lemont, Illinois when I was director there in the late 90s. It was truly a life changing experience as far as my ski technique was concerned. Not only did I learn so much about skiing but Nikolai also presented a view of his life in the Soviet Union that I found very interesting. I took more than I could ever imagine from his clinic.
I am deeply saddened to hear of Nikolai's illness and passing. I think of him often and will keep him in my prayers.
40th consecutive Birkie in 2020!
