Vintage Walt Disney World: A 1984 Ski Trip with the Country Bears

posted on January 24th, 2013 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center

Wintertime is upon us at Walt Disney World Resort, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a great time to go snow skiing here in Central Florida. Just ask Liver Lips, Wendell and Terrance from the Country Bear Jamboree.

Those casts seem to stem from a bad attempt at skiing down Big Thunder Mountain Railroad – not the brightest crayons in the box now, are they? Even Melvin the Moose looks a little confused by the situation.

Look below for more posts about the Country Bear Jamboree:

They look familiar. I think they were part of Miss Minnie’s Country Christmas which I saw in 1995.

This photo is also historically interesting because the Country Bear Jamboree was originally created as the nighttime entertainment for a ski resort Walt was planning called Mineral King in Californa!
