"The first area I taught skiing at when I was
just 14.  The instructors were pretty much all high school kids and we
had a great time.  It was truly a family environment and it seemed as if
everyone was related."
-John N.
Memories of San Isabel Ski. I was working in Canon City in 1981-1982 and
learned to ski here . It was a family place, resonable prices, lodge with warm
fireplace and the only deal I didn't like was the tow rope. It was a great place  to
learn  with  easy slopes and we had fun.  I hear it might be making a comeback.
