Presidential Vacations & Retreats President Ford Skiing in Vail

Photograph from President Ford's ski holiday in Vail, December 1974. When he finished a run, Ford chatted easily with reporters and bystanders. A half dozen Secret Service agents, all chosen for the skiing skills, stood by. When an onlooker told him everyone was proud to have him in Vail, the president grinned. "You make me justice of the peace and I'll quit"-and he meant the presidency!
