Ski Training at Fort Richardson
The 23d Infantry trained its beginner skiers at the Fort Richardson Ski Training area which was on-post. We had a number of beginners who had arrived after the annual ski training that was usually started in September or October each year, it was decided that the Company would go through it again. We first went to the "Bunny Slope" where we learned snowplow stops and turns and to herringbone back up the slope. It would have been funny except that I was one of the neophytes.
