A History of Skiing in Colorado

Skiing is not a new phenomenon in Colorado. It is a sport that has been around for well over a century. Early ventures into skiing were mostly incidental; the main purpose of skis in the 1800s was to enable people to thrive and survive nature's vagaries. Abbott Fay has done a marvelous job of tracking the history of what originally was a means of survival but which now is one of America's favorite sports. The original version of this book was published in 1982 as Ski Tracks: A Century of Colorado Skiing; but the book has long been out of print and the author has made many additions and changes to this revised version. Many new photographs and much new information has been added.
