Babette Haueisen: a pioneer in women’s skiing

Babette Haueisen was known to many as a skiing legend.

To Holley Schooley-Calvo and her family she was a mother and grandmother, despite Haueisen having no kids of her own.

"She gave me strength and she had a warm heart," said Calvo. "There's a lot of good parts of me that came from her."

Haueisen, a longtime Truckee local and Alpine Meadows' first full-time female ski instructor, died Aug. 24 surrounded by her loved ones. She was 88.
