Skiing has a long and storied history here in North America, and any die-hard skier can tell you all about the history of their local hill. We're putting your skills to the test with a new series called Skispotter. Each week we'll bring you an old-timey photo of a ski lift, ski area, or historic building and you- dedicated ski buffs- will guess where it's from. Have an old photo you'd like us to use? Drop us an email, we'd be ever so grateful.
Many a ski resort has made it onto the big screen; this one is no exception. It went from feature cartoon locale and silent film location to becoming a favorite hang for Hollywood elite; in fact, one of the most famous actresses of the mid-20th century was discovered here.
Prior to becoming a spot where movie stars hit the slopes, this region had a darker place in history. Let's just say it achieved fame after a party got out of hand. Tell us, Curbediverse. What is the name of this resort, and what is the cartoon it was featured in?
