The locals quickly had some skis made by Napoleon Bailey, a carpenter at Branch and Callanan's mill (formerly located near the Union Depot). Bailey, who had become familiar with skiing in Wisconsin, made his skis of beech, yellow birch, or black cherry. They were four to five inches wide, and tapered to a point in front. An iron runner was later added down the center for straight running.
