Vintage Colorado Ski Photos, 1955-63

My dad, his sisters and my grandparents spent many leisure hours skiing. Climax Mining Company opened a skiing area across from the mine and the town in the 1930s and offered Colorado skiers the first opportunity to ski at night.

Like so many ski areas in Colorado, the Climax ski area is now closed.

The photos below reflect a time that no longer exists. When a family could afford ski passes for themselves and their children at simply run ski areas and lodges.
