Tison in winter

Here is a shot of the Tison Estate house seen through the Japanese garden sculpture in front of the house - wintertime in the late 1970s.

cross-country skiing in 1974

Our "ski barn" in the early 1970s was the "Old Rec Hall," which was named Margetts Lodge after complete renovation. It was cold in there, and we had several propane heaters working full blast during the early-70s snowy frigid winters. People put on their skis in front of the Rec Hall, on the rise just north of the flagpole. My father took this picture in January 1974. I was working that weekend as a "ski instructor." I believe the woman in the white cap is Marsha Murphy, one of the full-year staff that year, along with Jack McCue and others. (Marsha and Jack ended up marrying and changed the surnames to McMuphy.)

And we encourage you to share, on our Facebook page, a simple video or story of the greatest gift Frost Valley has given you or your family!

Mary and Gun

Mary Fleischauer and an international counselor from Denmark named "Gun." I think Gun's last name was Meldron. She was a nurse's aid. The year was 1978 or so.
