Charles Elliott


From 1936 to 1944, Charles was the driving force behind an incredible growth and interest in skiing in the San Luis Valley region. He helped introduce skiing to Wolf Creek and helped reestablish the Ski Patrol in the area. In November 2013, Charles skied Wolf Creek for his 100th birthday. He has skied every year since 1934 except for the five years he served in the U.S. Air Force during World War II.
