Top of Pali Circa 1980


George Wood sent me this photo of his family enjoying the top of Pali circa 1980.

Interesting to see Pali as as a single black diamond. Checking skimap.org shows that Pali got (rightfully) upgraded to a double black in 1993.

I like the idea of a single black rating, expert terrain is expert period. works for Alta...

My first skis didn't have brakes either. It was fun a few weeks ago looking back on Lake Placid and the 1980 hockey gold medal.

There were no double blacks in the 80’s. Black diamond meant “buckle up tight” back then.

Here's a picture of me (being retro in jeans!) at Pali that was probably taken about 15 years ago ... so "proof" it was a double black by then.
