Skiway, New Hampshire
The Dartmouth Skiway is the canvas that Dartmouth skiing is painted on – past,
present and future… always there, always ready, always white. Many in this book
have made tracks there, and more Dartmouth skiers will in years to come.
(Chapter IV: by Jim Page)
I can remember either the 1952 or 56 Olympics when the entire Dartmouth Ski Team attended the Olympics; Brooks Dodge, Ralph Miller, Tom Cocoran, “Chic Agiai & I think Egal Stegium” (sp both) and our Norwich Girl & classmate Betsy Snite Riley. There were other DC’s skiers but memory doesn’t bring them now. Chic skied for Japan & won a silver, Betsy won a silver, Ralph set a speed record in Italy at I think 108 mph in the downhill. The Dartmouth ski team use to hang out at Art Bennett’s Ski Shop on Main Street and we young ones would listen to them weekly. They all congregated there and talked skiing with Art and many others. Hanover produced many other Olympians over the years, the Chiver’s boys, The Stewart kids, Sally Neidlinger plus the newer ones we all know. We have more medals from Norwich & Hanover then some countries! The drinking water is great here! Bill Aldrich
