Charles Elliott - Pioneer - 2011


Hall
From 1936 to 1944, Elliott was the driving force behind an incredible growth and interest in skiing in the San Luis Valley region, specifically Wolf Creek. His accomplishments during this time include construction of shelter facilities, fundraisers, establishment and training of a local Ski Patrol to increase safety on the mountain, installation of rope tows, and serving as its coordinator for the early operations. Now at age 98, he is the oldest member of the Grey Wolf Ski Club, consisting of 600 local members who are 50 or older.
