First skiing experience

"Earliest memory of skiing - when I was 14."



Competitive Skiing


What was your experience in the 10th like?

"In retrospect, I enjoyed all aspects of life at Camp Hale.   When the 10th moved to Texas in the summer of '44 for mule training etc the   heat got to me and I signed up for OCS and went - never to rejoin the 10th but went to   Hawaii instead (along with other ex 10th Mountain Div. Types).

Why did you join the 10th?

"Joined the 10th Mtn from college - early 1943 - volunteered   because I liked to ski and liked winter, cold, and mountains."

Role of Skiing in your Life

"Have continued to ski whenever there is enough snow-mostly   alpine at first and now a mix but heavier on the cross country side."
