About For the Love of It: The Mammoth Legacy of Roma and Dave McCoy

This 426 page narrative work of non-fiction traces the lives of Roma and Dave McCoy, visionary founders of world-renowned Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, from their singular childhoods through their eventual building of the first chairlift in the Eastern Sierra. The nostalgic narrative non-fiction book depicts California skiing in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s and illustrates the power of dedication, upbeat attitudes, and teamwork.

About Author Robin Morning

While growing up in Santa Monica, California, Robin Morning ski raced for Dave McCoy and his Mammoth Team, going on to race as a member of the U.S. National Team, and being named to the 1968 Olympic Ski Team before an accident the day before the opening ceremony.

Guided by her love of the sport, Robin went on to coach junior ski racers and master’s ski racers from Southern California, Mammoth Mountain, and both Durango and Vail, Colorado, before returning to California to finish school at U.C.L.A.

In 2008, in conjunction with the Mammoth Lakes Foundation, Robin published Tracks of Passion: Eastern Sierra Skiing, Dave McCoy, & Mammoth Mountain, a 70-page coffee table book with approximately 1,000 images, essays and quotations.

In 2020, Robin completed and published her current book, For the Love of It, a narrative non-fiction that describes Roma and Dave McCoy's lives from their early years through 1955 when they opened Chair One.
