I don't know if many people know this but I just found out and I wanted to share. Walt did the closing ceremony for the 60 Olympics in Squaw Valley near Tahoe. He saw the mountain side and used that as a guide for Big Thunder Mountain.
No problem. I thought is was so interesting. - cindy4eva

Did you also know that the flag pole that was used to fly the united states flag in the olympics that year was given to walt and he later donated it to his boyhood elementary school in Marceline. - pirate5150
