Ski patrol? An avalanche of reminiscencesfrom townies as well as alumnaeagreed on the basics: The teacher was Ed Taylor, who ran Alpine Meadows ski area, north of town, and owned a ski shop on Court or Regent Street. Whats more, nearly everyone claimed they saw themselves or their classmates in the photoincluding, with equal assurance, grads from 39, 46, 51 through 58, and 63.
After poring over yearbooks, trying to confirm any of the proposed identities, the Scope staff is persuaded that the pictured skiers are from the class of 53. A label on the back of the photo gives a date of January 1952. It also gives the location not as Alpine Meadows but Darrows Ski Tow, a small slope west of town.
