I first skied at Holiday in 1967 as a student of the Traverse City Record Eagle ski school. Thus began my love affair with skiing. I have so many wonderful memories of skiing at Holiday and the runs of the day: Marvelling at the peaceful view over East Bay from Ridge Run, moguls on Pepi, thrills in Coffin Canyon, learning how to stem christie on Snowshoot, mastering parallel skiing on Upper and Lower Holiday. Hours spent socializing with friends in the lodge after a great ski over hot chocolate and a grilled cheese sandwich; these are the things memories are made of.
I would hope that families can continue to build their own skiing skills and memories as I did for generations to come.
