Uh No -- 1977-1978 was an El-Nino year -- I recall Ski Acres (now Summit Central) only operating a few weeks that year.  I recall hiking (no skiis or snowshoes) to the summit of Kendall Peak that January.

Uh no, you recall incorrectly

77-78 was normal, 76-77 was a very dry year and the ski areas hardly opened

I've been scanning old negatives and came across a few more of the ski area and lookout.
These were in December of 1971, probably between Christmas and New Year. That was a really big snow year.

This is one in August of 1987 with my son and nephew.  The lookout still has no windows and the south wall is solid.
