How It Used To Be Done: Ross Gregg - Crystal Mountain, WA

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

This is a clip from this weekend at Crystal Mountain.  Ross Gregg has been skiing at Crystal for forty-nine years and is 72 years old.  He said he started there when he was nine but I couldn't make the math work since Crystal is celebrating its 50th year.  Disregarding the math, it's awesome to watch Ross ski and remember that the really good skiers in the 50's and 60's could make it work, even with old straight skis.  Ross still makes is work today.  A little MA? (Just kidding, of course).  It's fun to watch a guy who can still turn 'em so well.

Nice video!  Ross is one smooth old school skier.

Very smooth and stylish.  There are a surprising number of skiers at my home hill who look like that.  They all just happen to be in their late 60's and beyond.  Numerous times while waiting for a chair someone nearby has looked uphill and commented on how smooth they look descending.

 

Style and grace - a thing of beauty.

Classy and classic dude. Now that is style.

I remember skiing much like that, but it was harder in lace-up leather boots and sloppy bindings..

I too find it so. Really beautiful to watch. icon14.gif

 

I would love to see some video of him skiing other terrain/conditions: powder, crud, bumps.
