After working in Vail, Jim Tedford moved to Alta to help Jim McConkey build the Alta Lodge in the early 1960's.  McConkey was then hired as the new ski patrol director of the soon to open Treasure Mountains ski resort and Tedford found his way to Park City in October 1863 to work on the ski patrol. 

In this week's Park City story, Tedford recalls that opening season as well as Park City's all important apres ski opportunities in the early 60's.
