The White Cupboard Inn
Within a few weeks the tow was successfully carrying
skiers to the top of farmer Clinton Gilbertís hill pasture
just to the north of the village. Almost overnight the first
ski area and a burgeoning multi-million dollar industry
were born. Utilizing a model “T” engine to power
the tow, skiers could complete many down hill runs
without the physical exertion formerly required to climb
the hill and make just a few runs a day.
