as Told to Rick Richards
A story about the Taos Ski Resort
and its founder Ernie Blake
This sensitive and wonderfully
detailed book lays down the saga of Ernie Blake, a tough, urbane European émigré
who possessed a mystical sense of what could be make to happen. He looked
at an abandoned mine dump seven miles up a mule track in a lost canyon in
northern New Mexico and announced it to be the future site on a grand and
cosmopolitan ski resort, which we know today as the world class Taos Ski Resort.
To put this rich story of ski mavericks and
eccentric personalities, Richards interviewed a veritable who's who of American
skiing. Now you can reap the enjoy of this commitment.
