I was taken for a ride Over Brodie Mountain and Jiminy Peak saturday in the fragile appearing flying machine. An on the scene Check is the Only sure Way of determining ski conditions these Days. The viewing is Fine from a helicopter if you Aren t too scared to open your eyes. In a so petrified of Heights that i can t look Down from a chairlift. It took every bit of courage i could Muster to step into the plexiglass Bubble. But i did no to Nave a Lead item for this week s column. Walter Glass who has logged More than 30,000 hours of flying time was a world War n bomber Pilot and who they assured me is one of the worlds Best helicopter pilots fastened the safety belts and we took off from the Brodie Mountain parking lot. Disc jockey announcer Lee Gray was taking a lesson in the Brodie ski school. He also takes flying lessons curiosity conquered fear As we soared Over Brodie and i looked Down on the slopes where the skiers were Schissing Back and Forth. It was great. We could see a couple of shiny spots otherwise the skiing looked Good. The View of route 43 in Hancock and the trails at Jiminy Peak on the other Side of the Mountain was Worth the Effort it took to keep from closing my eyes As we hovered in space Over the Valley. We could see the original trails on East Mountain As we came Back towards the parking lot. They Are pretty much grown in but the old rope Tow Shack still stands where the a mad russian Quot Gregory Makaroff and it. Snows Walt Schoen Knecht ran the old Brodie mount Ali ski area Back in 1946. Glass brought the helicopter Down so gently that it was impossible to Tell at what moment it came to rest on the ground. The machine can be landed in such a Small area that manager George Maynard of Jiminy Peak has cleared a spot in his own front Yard for the try whirl Bird. Brodie or director Jim carry a Young son Tom and Dean Scarafoni son of or. And mrs. Richard Scarafoni of North Adams and Brodie ski school director Frank Weston All had rides. It was a first for All of us. Gray said they will be at Killington this weekend and that they have promised to give gov. Hoff a ride. Killington is opening National ski week with an International ski instructors race and both fun and serious Media races for members of the press Ami radio. Free skiing lessons and a torchlight Parade Are All scheduled during the first three Days of the National Observance which opens today. Snow reporting under the new England Council system which was instituted this year after enough discussion to resolve the world situation does no to allow an operator to rate the condition of his slopes. It merely records Type and depth of Snow. Areas with Well groomed slopes Are justifiably indignant. The new system also discriminates against the honest operator who has spent years building up a reputation for sending out True reports on which a skier May depend. And to add insult to injury a War services have been indiscriminately editing out Many of the areas Seldom the big ones of course which is further hurting places like Brodie Bousquet s and dutch Hill. All three have been left out. Several times it has been on Friday the most important Day for weekend business. And they pay As much As the major areas for the service. Fred Pabst of Bromley says a i done to like the present method because it penalizes the person who has a very smooth slope skiable with four inches of packed Snow. When depth of base is used instead of Quality of skiing and we Aren t allowed to say excellent skiers go to the area listing 17 inches of Snow and the trails May be in worse shape because of rocks and most of the Berkshire areas Are in the same boat. They Are equally unhappy with the new system. The operators have spent time and Money removing rocks and stumps and seeding the slopes. Unless the skier is aware of this the time and Money has been wasted when Snow depth is used As the gauge for the reports. Pat and Ben Harris a handsome Pittsfield mass., couple who have been skiing Berkshire and Vermont slopes together since the Early pre lift Days have purchased Shorter skis this year. A we like them much better Quot they say. Ben has gone from six nines to six threes and Pat from six threes to five nines. The harrises have spent so much time skiing together in Matching outfits that they have become known to Many of the area operators. Their new look alike outfits this year Are Cranberry coloured. Ben retired from the general electric co. In 1959. He taught skiing at dutch Hill at one time. They keep up to Date on everything including their ski technique. They Learned during the Arlberg Days but switched As soon As More modern methods were introduced. Their pet Peeve is the Quot dangerous Quot tag pinned on skiing. A people who say skiing is dangerous make me mad. Its no More dangerous than swimming and in be taught both Quot Ben insists. A you jump off the end of a pier into deep water of you did no to know How to swim a you a drown. Yet a beginner will go to the top of the Hill with no idea How to control his skiis Point them Down and let them go. Quot danger in skiing is primarily the result of inadequate physical conditioning. Shuttling from to to ski slopes induces weakening at both ends of the Homo Sapiens. Poor equipment Little knowledge of control and bad judgment Are other major contributors to skiing accidents Quot Ben insists. Quot so it Isnit the sport that is dangerous it s the would be Quot we get into condition at the beginning of the season by hiking the ski trails Quot Pat interjected As she smiled approval of Ben s statements. Ben recommends that beginners take lessons and then Quot practice practice another Point of irritation with the harrises is people who say they Are a too old to they expect to ski until they Are 90. Quot when your legs will no longer support your body and you can to find a wheelchair equipped with runners then ifs time to quit the ski slopes Quot is Ben s philosophy. Ben also has views on stretch pants. They come in three sizes he claims Quot tight very tight and but he wears them. After ski talk Jane Rollins of Pico ski club won the United states Eastern Amateur ski association Junior qualifying race at Tenney Mountain in new Hampshire sunday More than eight seconds ahead of the rest of the Field. Irv Bugg of Dalton mass., gets his Money s Worth skiing. He starts the Day with a pack of cigarettes and smokes one after each run in order to keep track. His record is 17 rides on the sugar Bush Gondola. Oyster crackers and Ketchup and an occasional Jackrabbit was the fare of ski bum Warren Miller at Sun Valley 15 years ago. Now an internationally known ski photographer he dines with the ski greats of the world. Anton Stevens bus Driver for casser Tours of new York likes his ski areas As close As possible to the City. Quot i get paid whether in a driving or waiting. Id rather get paid for waiting Quot he said.

He received two head cuts one requiring seven stitches when he was accidentally hit by Bobby Hups stick while flying full length on the ice.
