VADITO, N.M. (KRQE) – The founder of Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort in northern New Mexico has died.
The resort said Monday that Lloyd Bolander died at his home. He was 86 years old.
Bolander grew up in Penasco and started skiing when he was 3. In 1952, he and his wife opened Sipapu which is about a half hour south of Taos.
The couple charged only 50 cents per lift ticket back then.
