This is a continuation of Snow King ski stories that ran a few weeks ago. They are so good, I just had to keep sharing them.

Tina Marie Ransom: My dad, Warren Ransom, and his two friends would start at the top of Snow King and try to beat the hill record. They would jump the cornice and fly down the hill. I remember watching him as a small girl with those mile-long skis and I would marvel at his speed. One day they were a few seconds down to about where the trail from the second station came from the trees. A person was standing still looking out over the view when dad crossed over the back of the person’s skis and his friend went over the front at the same time.

Connie Owen would love to hear your stories. Call 605-593-2730 or email
