Nic Fiore arrived in Yosemite Valley on a snowy night in 1947 to work as a ski instructor at Yosemite’s Badger Pass. He slogged through three feet of snow to his dormitory, exhausted from the transcontinental train trip from his native Montreal and the following morning met ski school director, Luggi Foeger.

I remember seeing him in a video piece about the Firefall. I think he called down to Camp Curry from Glacier Point.

Oh, gosh, what an end of a really long era. Yes, Nic was the guy who called down from Glacier. I learned about him from skiing at Badger Pass.
