|"I skied St. Mary's in the early '80's... very small area. Cold and windy."
"Skied the glacier with the U. of Colorado ski team in the fall of 1961.
Remember it well as I was a "flat lander" who had some difficulties
adjusting to the altitude. Carried my skis and a young lady's, sweating all
the way to the base of the glacier."
- Jim M.
"I skied the glacier many times from 1972-1976. I had a pair of Cliff
Taylor short skis, perfect for the glacier because they were very light and
easy to carry, as well as being controllable so I could get in a lot of turns.
There was snow there year around, and in late September there was new
snow to soften up the old hard ice. By October I was off to climb ski
"My wife and I used to drive up to the glacier back in the mid-70s on
summer weekends. I would put on my Head ski boots and trudge
up the glacier one steop at a time until I reached the top. I normally only
made a few runs then headed for the house!
Interesting note: Without fail we would be skiing with the then mogul
king, Mike Taylor (I think I have his first name correct). He was
fantastic! Back then a full beard was fashionable for free-style skiers!"
