Classic Ski Films

Relive the golden age of alpine skiing with seven classic titles from three legendary filmmakers: Otto Lang, John Jay and Dick Barrymore. Otto Lang Films Otto Lang was an entrepreneur, a ski instructor to the stars and an Academy Award-nominated documentarian. The Basic Principles of Skiing (1941) was instrumental in the training regimen of the United States mountain troops. His film Ski Flight (1939) premiered at Radio City Music Hall, and Skifully Yours (1939) is Langs retrospective on the star-studded Sun Valley scene. John Jay Films John Jay was a Rhodes Scholar and respected ski filmmaker, and is considered the grand-daddy of the modern ski-film road show. His film Winter Magic Around the World (1946- '70) is part travelogue and part thrilling ski spectacle with a narrative tone as light as a dusting of fresh powder, and The Best of John Jay (1946 - '70) is a ski safari of yesteryears most daring action. Dick Barrymore Films Dick Barrymore was a Los Angeles fireman before he earned his global reputation as one of the greatest sku filmmakers of all time. His film, The Performers (1971) ushered in the freestyle revolution and The Last of the Ski Bums (1967) follows three footloose Americans living it up on the slopes in Europe.
