Andrea Mead Lawrence a 12-Year Old Skier in 1944 Vintage Ski Photo

Andrea Mead Lawrence, looking like a Bogner model and known as Andy, competed in her first slalom at 10. The next year she was named to the Women’s Eastern Ski Team, captained by her mother, and placed eighth in a slalom race. At 14, she qualified for the Olympic tryouts, and at 15 she was on the American team.

Andrea Bario Mead was born in Rutland on April 19, 1932, to Bradford and Janet Mead, owners of the Pico Peak ski resort, who introduced her to skiing at the age of 3. Annual spring trips to Switzerland were family musts, and Andrea learned by imitating a Swiss ski professional whom her parents brought to Vermont when she was 6. She had no formal lessons.

Her parents reared Andrea and her brother, Peter, under a principle the children heartily supported: “If the weather’s good, you ski; if it’s bad, you go to school.”
