I was looking around for some info on Loup Loup ski area and stumbled across this: https://vimeo.com/102181064. About 25 minutes. This was done a few (5?) years back by IRIS (Initiative for Rural Innovation and Stewardship); they documented a lot of history of North central WA. This covers ski areas - from Squilchuck to Sitzmark. Including a couple that I knew little about - Entiat and Patterson Lake. Great old photos and interviews - I have fond memories of pictures and voices I was privileged to know.

Watched the Vimeo and it was informative and nostalgic. Delightful!

Thanks for posting this. Brought back fond memories of learning to ski at Squilchuck (long before Mission Ridge). A rope tow pass cost $1.25/day but there were days when my brothers and I didn't have any money so we climbed up the hill and skied down..once in awhile sneaking a ride on the rope tow. Ski gloves had to have a heavy leather patch on the palm to help grip the rope...without the patch if you let the rope slide through your hands it would wear a hole in the glove. I also skied at the Entiat Valley ski hill. It was a short hill but the lodge had really good chili. Wooden skis with cable bindings but never broke my leg!

That was delightful. Thank you. The first few times I skied as a kid in the early 80s, I had ancient wooden skis with cable bindings.
