Small Town Ski Area

A look at Warner Canyon Ski Area, outside of Lakeview, a small town operation run by locals and staffed by volunteers. Don Lindsey is a volunteer and longtime skier who’s four sons also give their time to this community treasure, fixing the aging ski lift and grooming the slopes. The small ski area started as a lone trail created by clear cutting and was slowly expanded into what is now a thriving local attraction.
