Anybody know what the loop on the bottom was for?
Is that a picture or "artist's rendition?" That thing looks cool in a art deco / 50s future kind of way.
I think that just helped guide it and stabilize it when in the docking stations on either end. There were only two cars. Mount Snow was searching for them a few years ago. I never heard if they were ever found.
How does a mogul skier win an award for grooming?

So back on-topic: this should be a phenomenal book, and I look greatly forward to it. Chris Diamond was right in the thick of the explosion of the New England ski industry, with Killington LTD, S.K.I. LTD, and ASC. He worked with a lot of the same guys my dad worked with/for in the heyday of the big K: Pres Smith, Hank Lunde, Foster Chandler, Dave Wilcox, et. al. In '99, Chris took the reins at a substantial player in the Rocky Mountain ski industry: Steamboat. Chris has been around the block, knows the business, has stories to tell, and is a genuinely good guy. I had the distinct honor of sharing the 2014-15 CSCUSA Double Diamonds Award stage with him, when he won the Chairman's Award. I'm definitely excited to read his work.
