This fantastic documentary gives the audience a history lesson of Vail; from its birth in the early 60’s to its rise as the premier ski resort in America.
In 1962, a remote mountain valley was transformed into a ski resort that is now loved by millions. It all started when local boy Earl Eaton showed 10th Mountain Veteran Pete Seibert the vast open bowls on the backside of what is now Vail Mountain. Pete was overwhelmed, and knew he had found his dream. Seibert and his fellow pioneers acquired the land and forest service approvals. It wasn’t long before ski bums and millionaires arrived and gave their hearts and souls to making Vail a reality. Nothing was easy. Vail’s early residents faced more challenges than they ever could have imagined.
