“From childhood, my delight in simply being alive was intensified with every foot I could put between myself and sea level,” said Betty Woolsey, author of “Off the Beaten Track.” I met this extraordinary woman while skiing at Jackson Hole country in Wyoming, namely Elizabeth Woolsey, owner of a fabulous dude ranch, Trail Creek Ranch.
Before becoming the owner of the ranch, she led a life of fascination. Namely a life of skiing on two continents, in the Alps and out West. Her book is a record of the early days of ski racing, particularly by a woman. She also became captain of a women’s racing team.
