Mrs. Kampen, who is still living a Life Without George (1961, p. 947) made an auspicious beginning as ""the worst pupil ever to take part in the great Canadian ski renaisance."" Things steadily declined. This chronicles her many rises and falls from the slopes of Mont Tremblant through the slush of Sugarbush to the halls of the Danbury Connecticut Ski Club to the final, ultimate pinnacle of failure in Aspen, Colorado. In Aspen, an eager graduate of the Advanced Snowplow Turns class, she finally took the long trail up...and the longest time down after only five days of private lessons at $12.00 an hour. These happy recollections should warm the hearts of every stay-at-home...her moments as a Christmas Holiday chaperone, ""Ski Away"" flights on United Airlines, tripping the light Stem Christie. There is some light satire--Ladies Home Skiing level, and it's a snow job for the girls.
