Do you get a vision with a bit of a James Bond snow chase scene schussing through your head upon seeing this letterhead?  Perhaps a little bit of the theme song cued in your head?
Established in 1942, Camp Hale was set in a remote area and used for winter and mountain warfare training during World War II. Research shows that it had some  dramatic elements. Soldiers were trained in mountain climbing, Alpine and Nordic skiing, cold-weather survival as well as various weapons and ordnance.
