  • Miss Mary Jane: Winter Park Legend

    on January 30 | in Insider Secrets, Skiing & Snowboarding, Winter Park | by | with Comments Off on Miss Mary Jane: Winter Park Legend

    PowTreesGroom_WinterPark_03You know, musing from down here in the cold bare earth, I look back at my life and legacy and I must admit, I’m fairly impressed with myself. When you’re a sheep herders daughter, just trying to find your way in the world by any means necessary, alone, in the late 1800s, it ain’t easy. But with an entrepreneurial spirit, I put myself on the map, albeit 100 plus years later.

I made my mark and now my legacy belongs to one of the best ski resorts in the world. My name is Mary Jane. Continue Reading
