A gem of a ski area in central Vermont changed its name. Formerly Suicide 6, the ski area is now called Saskadena Six, though the nickname S6, still works. I had a memorable day on those slopes back in January, 2022, so what better time to get to know the ski area better than now. The history of S6 is the history of early American, life-served skiing, so history buffs will delight in the twelve decades of coverage…in just SIX minutes (well, plus 24)! As expected, lots of “sixes” scattered throughout the episode. Tips Up suggests learning the impressive facts about the Tour de France, the future of Yellowstone & the National Park System and of course, why the name Saskadena Six (here’s a hint – The [a] Connection.) Six trivia questions (of course that amount, right?!) with a mix of historical, prestigious and ridiculously-themed questions await listeners. Enjoy Pow hounds!
