Old ski movies

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Yes I'm old and therefore not much interested in the new wave of hucking movies with huge lines shot from a mountain away.  Therefore I'm looking for some 60s and 70s vintage type to show in the store.  Any help out there?

www.Criticalpast.com has some great stuff from the early 1900's up to the 1980's, particularly the old racing and military footage.  Most of the stuff from our era (we are likely a similar age) can be downloaded off YouTube or found elsewhere online.

 

Here is an older Canadian clip showing how "advanced Ski Wordens" rescued an avalanche victim:  http://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675069742_avalanche-on-Canadian-rockies_ski-patrol-trainees_skiers-ski_take-out-victim  .  Critical Past is loaded with this old newsreel and training footage.

What are you calling old?  Stuff like early Warren Miller, Greg Stump stuff?  Phil and I have some duplicates in our library.  Perhaps we can help you if that's the kind of stuff you're interested in.

Lou, you're not old. You just have a different sensibility!   ;-)

 

Go here, buy this DVD...

 

  http://www.seracfilms.com/seracfilms/summitfilms

 

Or you could just play the trailer in loop mode fullscreen on a PC.

 

(In case you don't know right-click on the video area and you'll see options for loop and fullscreen.)

 

Cheers.

As part of the 50th anniversary of chair lift serviced skiing at Tod Mt./Sun Peaks, last winter at Sun Peaks Bento's Day Lodge they ran the Tod Mountain Movie along with a Sun Peaks clip on a continuous loop TV.

 

Lou:

Get a hold of Sam in the marketing dept. at Sun Peaks Resort. He should have a copy of the Tod Mountain Movie. Filmed in 1973 with original music by "Uncle Al", who ran the ski shop at Tod Mt.,  the movie won an award at a film festival in New York a year later. If Sam can't help you, then pm me as I have a copy of the Tod Mt. Movie on DVD, somewhere.

 

Hope this helps,

Danny

 

PS: The real cool factor with these old ski movies is when today's hot shot guys admit that they are impressed with the things those guys could do on old long skinny skis.

Hi Lou,

 

I have a fairly good movie collection at home. There are a few real classic out there that I really love.

 

I'm personally not a huge fan of the 1960s and 1970s era.

 

My favorite that aren't too new and aren't documentaries:

 

Dr. Arnold Fanck: White Ecstasy (Der weiße Rausch)(The Ski Chase), New England Ski Museum, 1931, 70min

- Warren Miller: Steep & Deep, Journey through the Decades, 1985, 92min

Greg Stump: The Blizzard of Aahhh’s, Greg Stump’s Foursome, 1988, 75mi

 

There are a few collections that include an number of DVDs.

 

One that I have seen out there is called Classic Ski Films, it somethings like 8 DVD. Stuff from Otto Lang (1930-40s), John Jay and Dick Barrymore. I personally not a fan of this collection, however the Barrymore are classic from 1960s ski movies and save it for this collection.

 

Warren Miller's Journey through the Decade includes 4 DVD, one from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. This is a good collection.

 

Greg Stump's Foursome and TGR first 3 movies might be to recent for you.

You can find my filmography (something like 60+ titles) on my blog. Everything is more or less chronological. If you look at the 3 titles above, the italic part mentions when this movie is part of a collection (ie Steep and Deep can be found on Journey through the Decades).

That's my all time favorite ski movie.  I've watched it dozens of times.  

 

My collection is only about 25 movies.  I'm jealous of yours!

Agree about White Ecstasy...it's up there and is miles above the rest in the pre 1960s movies that I own or have seen. I was one of the first old movies that I got and was somewhat disappointed that all the other old ones I bought afterwards don't even come close imo.

 

 My collection has the individual titles, but if you take the Classic Ski Films, you get something like 8 titles out of it. I got also a few 4 packs too. There are just a few recorded ones from TV that were never commercially released. Some of them were transfers from Beta video tapes.

    I have about 200 ski films dating up to about 2003 and back to 1932 (The Ski Chase). A lot of Warren Miller plus all the other film makers and some from the New England Ski Museum. I would     have to put them on discs for you. If interested contact me and I will give you more information.  Ray

Everybody I've been lazy about getting here the last few months.  End of the season means END OF THE SEASON.  Thanks for your help.  I'll get to work.  Have a great summer.
