Stepping back in time with ski Magazine...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I just discovered that most of Ski Magazine's catalog of magazines going back to the 1960's is available in Google Books.

 

Its a very cool look back in skiing history, and it also shows how much better SKi magazine used to be when it was about more than on mountain restaurants.

 

The January 1991 cover asks if Glen Plake is "Hair Today, gone tomorrow."  Hmmm.

I want to call some of the numbers for ridiculously cheap on-mountain condos.

I liked the "powder ski" review section in the Glen Plake cover issue.

Of course, every other page was an ad (some hilarious -- apparently skiers are really into cars, watches, and booze).  There's also a five-page story about Deer Valley, including a plug for the then-new on-mountain homes (priced from just $1M!) and another on Sugarbush (under new ownership), plus no fewer than FIVE "special advertising sections".  And NASTAR brought to you by Miller Lite!

 

In that powder ski section, did anyone else catch the Atomic guys talking about their 4.5-inch-underfoot (~115mm) powder ski prototypes?  Guess it took a while to get it right...
