STOCKHOLM, Maine -- Suzy Anderson recalls the days when everyone skied in Aroostook County. She and her friends skied to school. They wore their ski boots in class, and skied after school. They competed in winter carnivals and raced each other on weekends.
Then Anderson left northern Maine to go to college. When she returned in 1974, the skis had disappeared. They'd been replaced by gas-powered snowmobiles.
