Written by an old timer who has been schussing the nooks and the crannies, the steeps and the deeps, for 50 years, ""Ski Tales: The History of China Peak and Sierra Summit ""reveals the unique, dramatic, and often humorous history of Central California's premiere ski location, Sierra Summit, from its beginning as China Peak to the present day. Taking an affectionate, but realistic, view of the ski resort that has been the center of his life for so many years, Benelli tells the true history of Sierra Summit, its successes and shortcomings, and the interesting folks who nurtured the resort to what it is today. Along the way, ""Ski Tales ""provides a fascinating first-hand look at how the sport of skiing has developed in the last 50 years, as new ski technology, business pressures, and a changing society transformed a once rustic mom-and-pop ski resort to an international sports destination. Illustrated with dozens of vintage and new photos of colorful personalities and breathtaking snowscapes, ""Ski Tales""will take you on a nostalgic journey through decades of perfect snow, sunny days, fun, and friendship.
