Paul Robbins, a ski and travel journalist who served as the U.S. Ski Team’s primary writer for more than two decades, has died of an apparent heart attack. He was 68.

The U.S. Ski Team said Robbins died while working in his home on Saturday.

Robbins was well known for wearing a Scottish tam. He started writing about ski racing in the late 1970s. His work appeared in many magazines, including Skiing, SKI and Ski Racing.

Robbins worked at eight Winter Olympics.

He was an Army veteran who served as an information officer in South Korea in the early 1960s. He later worked for United Press International in Boston as New England bureau chief.

Robbins is survived by his wife of 18 years, Kathe. A memorial service in Vermont will be coordinated by the U.S. Ski Team and his friends for a date in late spring.
