A woman participating in the first Annual Snowmass Ski and Swim Contest, 1969. Related images are in the Aspen Illustrated News on April 10, 1969 (page 19), with a caption reading "The first Annual Snowmass Ski and Swim Contest was held last Friday on and in the snow and pools of Fanny Hill. Nine brave contestants entered, going from hot to cold or wet to wax thrice before emerging from the waters to quaff the wine awaiting at the finish line. Merchandise prizes were also given but the greatest fun seemed to be the invigoration of the chilling race."
