It began with Frank Schneider building the Stratton MT. Ski Resort. He imported the legendary skier Emo Henrich, who came with (7) seven ski pros  Three of them  were musicians as well, Adi - Walter - Adi, and the Stratton Mountain Boys were born. 
This is the landscape the Stratton Mountain Boys grew up with. On snow they are sailing the terraine, and music is their rhythm on skis  -  such expertise brought them to Vermont..
The ski 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 proofed it by winning the Eastern Freestyle Skiing Championship and many other events. Adi a  high ranking  -  NASTAR      
Pace Setter -  became head of a ski school that posted nearly one million ski lessons during his tenure. Some members since have retired.  Yet, a core group under Stefan remains active. So it is, that today the Stratton Mountain Boys are still bringing their "Joy de Vivre"  to selected festivals from Vermont to Florida - every fall.
