This is my 49th year of skiing at Bachelor.
I was a member of the Ski Patrol for 10 years, two as a paid patrolman.
Lots of changes for sure! Also have had the pleasure of knowing all the Presidents and General Mangers personally.
The Mountain is being operated by looking at the yearly bottom line since Powder Corp took over.
Some what hard for all the NEW locals to except.
I would like to have the good old days back also; however, I find life even as a skier brings changes too fast!
The man that made the place pay for itself season after season by being the best operation in the Northwest was Cliff Blann. He has two sons still active in the industry. One is Mountain Manger at Heavenlly Valley
and other President of Jackson Hole. Look at trail maps and ski run and see the similar facilites.
