Famous Friends? Harry White hrwhite I have a friend here in Mammoth Lakes, Andrea Mead Lawerence, who won two gold medals in skiing in the '52 winter olympics. I know she is the only female US skier to win two golds in skiing in the same olympics. She may be the only female in the world to have accomplished this feat. That was the same winter olympics that Stein Erickson won the gold in.
Andrea was from Vermont. Her parents owned and operated a ski area, Pico Peak, in Vermont. I believe Pico has been absorbed by a larger area. Andrea is active in local politics and is an avid environmentalist. I have been on many hikes with her but have not yet skied with her. She is quite a lady.
