Wes Howell operates Reno Ski Bowl in 1958. In 1962 Wes takes over Reno Ski Bowl, now Slide Mountain, and installs the following lifts: Overland (with mid-station), Little Red (in Red Bowl Area), Poma Platter (Slide Bowl Beginner Lift), and Pony Lift (near Shangri-La). From this point on everyone can ride a chairlift, including beginners.
