Warm welcome when I arrived from Dave Doumont - his 36th day of this season, skiing Red and Phoenix. Dave taught skiing at Baldy year one, before Wally and Mary Anne Day started the ski school. More recently he coached in the Nancy Greene Program at Baldy. Interesting to hear some of the history of Phoenix, and Dave's involvement in laying out and logging the runs. The power came from the Phoenix Mine, and the mine was responsible for the original installation of the towers. It didn't take long for us to catch up with Teledeano. One of the lift operators was Sieglinde's great nephew, and riding the T-bar reminded us of the good old days at Baldy. Your legs get a work out on the way up too.
