With the fireweed blooming in the mountains and the aspen leaves changing up high, our thoughts naturally turn to the approaching ski season. Today we spent an hour early in the morning at “The Breakfast Table” with Roy Hanschke, Denise Washington Blomberg and Gordy Scott, sharing on KPOF 91 AM the story beneath the story of Colorado skiing.
For the Christian audience of “The Point”, we told how humble people, many of whom were Christians, brought the ski culture to the state initially. Pastors were motivated to help young people by creating hills and areas where they could spend time skiing. Also, early skiing was based on a system of older, experienced skiers mentoring younger ones, which was passed down through the years.
We also shared about how blessed we were to have this project at a difficult time in our lives—it helped us lighten up!—and how the Lord seemed to connect us with just the right people across Colorado as we worked on it.
Our books are meant to be fun and we hope KPOF listeners and others enjoy them! We hope you enjoy them.
Thank you, KPOF 91 AM!
