Guts & Grit

A very much #latergram #throwbackthursday #whitetoothskihill - from http://www.snowseekers.ca/story/then-and-now-kicking-horse By the 1930s, the community had a few slopes to ski and even held jumping competitions. In 1955, the Kinsmen built the first rope tow on the hill near the rodeo grounds and in 1968, a 1,000 foot-long rope tow was taking skiers up Mount 7 on the north side of the river until 1980. Six years later, volunteers cleared some runs on the north-facing slopes of Whitetooth Mountain, and installed the Pioneer Chair and one T-bar on 2,000 feet of vertical. The Whitetooth Ski Area was a hit with locals and word spread quickly about the snow and the potential to expand. (at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort)
