Featured Guest Speaker:
Join us for a entertaining and informative presentation by Mike Beebe at our Annual Meeting! Mike will share his personal memories and stories about growing up at Temple Mountain Ski Area and the early days of skiing and hiking along the Wapack Trail. His stories will reflect the extensive ski history of the area including the early days of ski touring along the Wapack Trail, the arrival of the Boston snow trains in 1932, the founding of Temple Mt. Ski area by his parents, Charlie and Lucie Beebe, in 1937, the “Temptic” Ski Touring Club, and the fun and challenges of running a ski area in the early years of the sport. Mike will provide a preview of his new book, “My Cathedral, Temple Mountain; the skiing adventures of Rope Tow Charlie and the Beebe Family at Temple Mountain.” This is a must for fans of the former ski area and for anyone interested in the history of skiing in New England and the early days of the Wapack Trail. Everyone is welcome!
