1. I lived in the "lodge"
My Mom worked at Mammoth Mountain, I worked there "on leave" from the US Navy in 1961 and 1962. Was a "Ski Patrolman/Ski Instructor, in 1961 and "rope tow operator". We only had 1 rope tow then. It was a boatload of fun. We lived in the original ski lodge that Dave's Dad built. Didn't know it was going to be a monument. Would have taken more pictures.
