PICTURES OF THE MOUNTAINS IN THE VAIL VALLEY.


Recommended Posts

HERE ARE A FEW PICTURES OF THE SKI RUNS AT BEAVER CREEK SKI RESORT COLORADO.THEY ARE PHOTO'S FROM OUTSIDE MY CONDO BALCONY. BEAVER CREEK IS IN THE WHITE RIVER NATIONAL FOREST. THE PLACE WERE THE 1OTH MOUNTAIN DIVISION TRAINED BEFORE AND DURING WWII. IT IS AN AMAZING MOUNTAIN RANGE THAT HAS DOZEN OF PEAKS AT OVER 10,000 FEET EACH. THIS IS THE SAME AREA THAT THE 10TH MOUNTAIN TRAINED ; SKIED AND BUILT A SERIES OF CABINS USED FOR BUNKING AND DINNING WHILE CONDUCTING TRAINNING FOR DEPLOYMENT TO EUROPE DURING WWII. THE MEN THAT TRAINED IN THIS DIVISION ARE HEROS AND TRUE MOUNTAINERING AND SKIING LEGENDS.

 

I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH A GENTLEMEN NAME BOB FROM PINE KNOB SKI RESORT IN CLARKSTON MICH.USA.FOR 10 PLUS YEARS. THE STORIES OF HIS TRAINNING AND SKIING AND DEPLOYMENT ARE TRUELY THE FEATS OF HEROS. JUST ONE LOOK AT THOSE 11,000 FOOT PEAKS IN THE PICTURES TELLS ME THESE GUYS ARE SERIOUSLY BRAVE. THANK GOD THEY WERE ON OUR SIDE.

 

ENJOY THE PICTURES !!!
