Ski Ward (Ward Hill to me) brings back memories. Thats where I learned to ski in 1986. Spent many Saturday afternoons riding the old Mueller double and T-Bar. There used to be trees on the right hand side of the chairlift. Nice big pine trees and one that split into two that made an awesome jump. Thanks for the pic's. I will have to see if I still have any old pics from circa 1986-87 and if they have lifts I will be sure to send them to you OG.

If that's what it takes for it to snow, please keep updating!
It's still only down to 38F here at 12:30am! Not cold enough to make snow. Can I send you some more PA pics to update so it will snow here?

It's about 150 to 200 foot vertical. The angle of the pic makes it smaller than it seems.

Mt.Snow100, it's amazing how many skiers learned to ski on that little bump. I used to teach there parttime in the early 1960s just after Ed Fedelli and Bob Rochette leased the area and put in snowmaking, the t-bars and the base lodge.
We used to kid them that Ward Hill had a 200-foot verticle if you measured from the top of the t-bar bull wheel at the top of the hill to the bottom of the well at the bottom of the hill. Anyway, its uniform contour made (and still makes) it a terrific place to learn to make turns and its small enough not to be intimidating for first-timers.
When the late Bill Morrow ran the ski school we had as many as 75 parttime instructors and gave thousands of lessons each season. Tony DeBoise learned to ski there. Tony was the first African-American to make the U.S. Ski Team development squad. He used to ski on the CanAm and Europa Cup circuit. His father Frank used to teach at Ward Hill and later helped coach the Warterville Valley racing team. The area also made up synchronized skiing teams of youngsters and turned out eastern Masters champions for many years. Masters skiing was a concept started by Peter Pinkham in North Conway back in the 1960s. It featured mastering the four final turn forms (snowplow, stem turn, stem christie and parallel) of the American Ski Technique then taught at most areas, plus a freestyle run. Pinkham wanted the concept to promote elegance on skis.I guess it was a forerunner of freestyle skiing , since some competitors later went into freestyle.
I still find it a little strange to see a chairlift on that little hill, about where the original rope tow was situated before expansion. As I have said before, a couple of years ago on this subject, Ward Hill was one of those skiing incubators that got people into the sport at a low price and sent them on to bigger mountains. They were very important in the growth of the ski industry, and too many of them now are NELSAP areas.
