It began with Frank Schneider building the Stratton MT. Ski Resort. He imported the Alpine Ambiance with the legendary skier Emo Henrich, who brought seven ski pros. Three of them were musicians as well, Adi - Walter - Adi, and the Stratton Mountain Boys were born.
The instructor band grew in numbers and gained national attention on festivals in most every state of the country. When it comes to skiing expertise all of the boys were exceptional. Emo topped the list, Stefan won an Eastern Freestyle Skiing Championship and many other events. Adi, a high ranking NASTAR PACESETER, became head of a
ski school that posted nearly one million lessons during his tenure.
