Historical Sports: 1953 Juneau High School Ski Team

Posted: December 10, 2012 - 1:05am
The 1953 Juneau High School ski team, left-to-right: Janet Flint, Penny Blood, Jack Gould, LeRoy West, and Ron Hildre. The hard hike up to the Douglas Ski Bowl, or Dan Moller Bowl, or 3rd Cabin to old-timers, was alleviated a bit when the first rope tow put in at 2nd Meadows after World War II was moved to the bowl. The high school team could only ride on "Oola" the ski tractor if they were racing. Some would grasp on with their ski poles and ride along. The tractor became "Oola, the Juneau Ski Train" and pulled a sled caboose that held 40-50 skiers. The Juneau Empire thanks the anonymous individual for the photo.
