A fun story about a local legend from an intrepid reader

Last month – yes, when it was still snowy! – longtime reader Jo sent us this photo taken at Pinchot Park.

She writes, “Tony, 88 year-old skier, was the first ski instructor hired by Ski Roundtop, in 1962. If we meet again I’ll get a better photo. He’s very photogenic!”
I can’t find anything about the ski mountain’s history on the Roundtop Mountain Resort website, so I’ve asked Hubby to do some archival research for me. I’m interested in hearing more about Tony! I’ll keep you posted!

About Joan

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!

    Please do. Tony wouldn’t give me his last name and I didn’t ask again. He is a very likable old man and although our conversation lasted only minutes I could have spent much more time with him getting to know him and his history. I hope Chris is successful is finding out more. I’d bet the newspaper has already done stories on Tony over the years since he was at the ski resort for so long a time.
