Greatest outdoor gifts just keep on giving
From a child starting a lifelong love of skiing to a pair of socks, Mainers talk about presents that were whimsical, unexpected and life-changing.

...The snowbanks in the 1968 photo tower over a 3-year-old Dana Bullen, even though he’s standing on the hood of a Jeep. Bullen’s smile can’t be seen in the grainy Polaroid shot, but it’s there under the winter layers.

Now 52 and Sunday River’s president of 14 years, Bullen said the photo is a reminder of the greatest gift he ever received: “That first year on snow” when his dad helped him learn to ski. The sport gave him a meaningful life’s pursuit and no shortage of hometown pride. That first winter of ski lessons at Titcomb Mountain in Farmington started it all.

“I work in an industry that encourages being outdoors,” Bullen said. “I got to raise my family in the great state of Maine. I love coming to work every day.” ... gift-ever/
