Did you know...

The first ski tow in Colorado - a rope - was built by members of the Pike Peak Ski club at the Glen Cove area on Pikes Peak in December, 1936. It ran off an old Whippet engine.
The ski area was plagued by wicked winds, but was popular nonetheless. In 1944, it was turned over to the military, and was used by soldiers from Camp Carson and Peterson Field for physical training exercises.
