Man skis for his 100th birthday

One of the pioneers of skiing in Colorado celebrated his 100th birthday on Tuesday the same way he always has -- by going skiing.

Charles Elliot is the oldest member of the Grey Wolf Ski Club and has reportedly skied every season since 1934, with the exception of a five-year period serving in the Air Force during WWII.

Back in the 1930s, Elliot helped found the Wolf Creek Ski Area and the National Ski Patrol.

As part of his birthday celebrations, Elliot was made an honorary member of the U.S. Ski Team and presented with an official team jacket. Two years earlier, he was inducted into the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum's Hall of Fame.
