Importance of Vermont

"Vermont became a part of my life only after returning from   WWII. At that time I returned to the Univ. of Mass and as expected continued   my skiing career. The obvious skiing was to the north and so it was to head   for Vermont at every opportunity and   eventually to Stowe where we ski and live."

First skiing experience

FALSE    "ca 1935-36.   As boyscouts, we made our own skis,   binder etc. The Boyscout Leade was an avid skier and enthusiastic in having   all his scouts participate in the sport. As a result, the whole troop became   interested and at this early date represented a rather unique bit of skiing   history. Of course it logically followed that skiing would forever be an   important part of my life - through high school, college, 10th Mtn, and to   the present."

What was your experience in the 10th like?

"My experiences in the 10th can only be described as   extremely unique. The training, the camaraderie, being part of the special   and select group of individuals that initially constituted the 10th, and of   course the exciting adventures that took place in Italy."

Why did you join the 10th?

"While in college it became obvious that I was going to be   drafted into military service, and having heard of the so called SKI troops,   it was an instant decision to volunteer. So on to Camp Hale."
