In the 60's virtually hundreds of local ski lift installations and most of today’s major ski resorts erupted onto the American ski scene. Nearly 65 areas operated in Massachusetts and Connecticut alone. Nationally, Mount Snow opened ln 1954, Okemo in 1956, Aspen Highland, Killington, Sugarbush, Sugarloaf, Whiteface in 1958, Hunter, Sunday River in 1959, Windham in 1960, Breckenridge, Alpine Meadows[n 1961, Crested Bute, Vail in 1962, Park City; Steamboat in 1963, Jackson Hole, Waterville in 1966, Snow Mass in 1967, Tahoe in 1968, Keystone in 1970, followed by Copper and Telluride two years later, and this is just to name a few. An entire ski industry grew up around it and collaborated in bringing the value of skiing to the public, via Media, Magazines,  Radio, Ski Shows, Movie Productions, Ski Clubs, Schools, and all kind of commercial organizations.The professional ski instructors formed in 1958 and veterans of the army 10th Mt. ski division supported the movement. Obviously the economic prosperity was high, and experts explain it on the wave of people emerging after world war II, and such waves are visible for the past 125 years. Well, Stratton Mountain opened the doors in fall of 1961 and built enthusiasm for the sport with charismatic ski professionals. Many resorts did that, yet, Stratton went a step further and added ski pros with musical talent, bringing ambiance to the dance. Herewith the Stratton Mountain Boys were born, as role models on the hill and popular entertainers, performing later in every state of the Union, except one. Herewith, if you listen to the Boys you experience an integral part of  American Ski History, the healthy environment of living in the mountains, and an humor of taking life not to seriously:
