Alex Lapansee met Chuck Peterson (the original owner of Stokely) when he was around 17. He started working at Stokely doing odd jobs. He soon began to learn how to groom and maintain the grooming machines.
30 year later, the grooming garage is his domain. Alex repairs the machines and keeps the trails groomed and our skiers love it. He helps build the culverts and stocks the wood garages during the off season. Jonathan or Richard help groom the trail system.
Alex knows the trail system, the animal tracks and crossings blindfolded. Stokely is grateful for his years of dedicated service and you can remember him as you ski the trails or get warmth from the fireplaces.
