June 11, 1969 - Summer Skiing in Adirondacks

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:17 PM EDT

On this day in 1969, Reporter Dick Beach out doing something you don't see every day-- skiing in mid-June!

This was on top of prospect mountain in the adirondacks since it was 85 degrees out. There wasn't any real snow, so they used a new type of green and yellow bristly rings that beach said made you feel like you were really on the "white stuff."

It was beach's first ever snow skiing lesson.
