When I was a kid I would attach lift tickets & help in the parking lot at Heavenly for a few hours in the mornings. Back then the tickets were attached with a copper wire & a little lead lug that had to be closed with pliers. They would give us a ticket good for the rest of the day.
I have also done a lot of volunteer race crew stuff over the years.
The lift evac thing can be fun if you don't freeze your a$$ off.
OK, I smell a rat; back then, I'm not convinced they had lifts to charge tickets for, and didn't you all smear animal fat or sumsuch to ward off freezing in the first place?
In fact, isn't this you on the cover of Saturday Evening Post, earning your turns with a Garand?
