1939

An old Ford tractor powers the Old Man's Flats rope tow in in 1939 at Snow King Mountain in Jackson Hole, WY.

The cable, used to power the uphill tow, was bought used from an oil drilling company in Casper, Wyoming. The work crew ran the cable through a narrow cut in the forest up the west side of the ski area, all powered by an old Ford tractor.
