Happy 90th birthday

Widge Ferguson, a part-time resident of Vail for many years, will celebrate her 90th birthday on Thursday! Widge skied Vail when it first opened in 1962, and recently enjoyed skiing here with her great-grandchildren! She had a reputation in the early 1970s for always bringing big fresh powder snowstorms to Vail when she came from Denver to ski. Bob Parker nicknamed her “The Snow Witch” and “Widge’s Ridge” in the Sun Down Bowl was named to honor her.
