History

Oklahoman entrepreneur Art Wood and his associate Harold Tiller envisioned the idea for the resort which was then known as "Ski Incline", and was developed to reality in 1966 by Luggi Foeger, a famous Austrian ski resort consultant whom Wood hired to design and build the resort. It has long since expanded and grown since its debut in November, 1966.
