Two Generations of Passes

Filed Under (History Updates) by admin on 16-11-2010

My roots at Magic run pretty deep and I am sure that many of the folks who ski here have similar tales.  I was one of those nerds who saved my lift tickets.  I am glad I did because now I can explain why families are such a necessary part of Magic’s sustainability.

My story as a Magic skier pre-dates my birth by 10-15 Years.  The first ticket here was clipped from my mom’s wool ski parka.  This would place this ticket in the 1963-66 era.   During these winters, my parents rented a farmhouse over near Lowell Lake.  The family who owned the farm rented the house in the winters and moved into the barn to keep the farm afloat.

The Bicentennial arrived and so did I.  My parents still frequented Magic, but now their ski house was down route 11 in Manchester.  The next ticket once adorned my 5th grade parka, which if I remember correctly, matched the colors of this ticket.  Wearing that jacket I skied “Witch,” my first Double Diamond. I remember peering down Magician in awe, wondering if it would ever open and wondering why it wasn’t included in the 87% snowmaking coverage.

Little did I know that my favorite mountain would close three lean snow years later, before I had the opportunity to ski Upper Magician.  As ski areas evolved with high-speed quads and condos, Magic sat dormant. I dreamt of one day buying the mountain I loved and opening it back up.  In 1997-98, my junior year of college, Magic re-opened and my dream came partially true.

I have since skied Upper Magician several times and will never forget the first time I did in March 1998.  Still untrimmed and riddled with seven-foot saplings, it was one of my fondest ski memories.  A right of passage, something I never thought I would accomplish when the mountain first closed.

This takes me to the third ticket, my pass from last season. (No that is not my real hair or name).  I am proud of the Shareholder designation on the lower left corner as I am fulfilling the other part of my dream, owning Magic.  Many families now enjoy the hill raising future Magic Faithful.  I encourage others to join the Magic Partnership, as no child should ever be denied their first run down Upper Magician.
