    1. I agree its nice to remember those distant years, back when mt bachelor still advertised an operating lift network as part of every ticket purchase

  1. Any chance KTVZ could do more of these “Moments in History” of Bend? When I was working for the City of Bend years ago, I stumbled across old pictures of when the town, back then, half of it was burned down. The only thing that saved the rest of it was the Deshutes River. Anyway, the Pilot Butte piece was nice to see!
