A Circle of Friends, a Blazing Fireplace-the Perfect Spot toWax Skis Badger Pass's first deep snows attract a steady procession of cars, their tops loaded with skis, their seats filled with bantering, singing young men and women. Arriving, the visitors lose no time deckingthemselves inski boots, plaid shirts, smoked glasses, and sometimes parkas. Then they shove off for the ski tows and cross-country runs. At evening, tired but happy, they return to the ski house(right) tothaw out, satisfy ravenous appetites, and wax skis for the next day's run. They sleep elsewhere.
