Coppervale Tow Gets Stiff Test
January 11, 1955

The ski tow at Coppervale made some successful experimental runs last weekend. Saturday, in a snowstorm, the Westwood High School ski team gave the town a hard test. Sunday about 50 skiers and club enthusiasts tried to find weakness in the general setup.

The general consensus seemed to be that with a few improvements a fine ski run will be available to the people in the Westwood-Susanville area.

Thought developed that another smaller tow be put below the large tow in order that beginners could use the more gentle slopes and that other skiers could also utilize more slope area. This might be explored more fully.

Many other minor improvements are being made.
