Squaw Valley Video Shoot from 1989

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

With all the talk of big changes at Squaw, this video from 1989 is really interesting.  20+ years later and its very recognizable. 

 

The video shoot was done by Carrera and features our EpicSki friend Dan Egan. 

 

What a blast from the past. 

 

 

 

 

Description of the video:

Mullets, long skis and the 80's! Part two of California Dreaming a Japenese clothing shoot for Seiller, Carrera and Trissi brands shot in Squaw Valley in 1989.

TC- What a find!!!! It's great to see so many things that are instantly recognizable. Great skiers too, another notable name on the list is Tom Day. It's funny that the CoinOp race course dates back at least to those days. And of course there was no shortage of wind packed snow back then. Awesome video.

Well, the mountain and structures have held up much better than the fashions.

 

I do think we need to encourage more table dancing in the future.

That's Squaw's culture: party town.

What a great time for hair care products, eh? Did you see the guy in the background with the grey Patagonia fleece under the tan down vest and blue gen 1 REI goretex pants? That was me!... Just kidding, but had a blast skiing there in the late 8o's early 90's.smile.gif

This is a Stoke thread about Squaw Valley and kick a$$ skiing in the 80's please leave the jibber jabber about expansion in the other thread.

I moved the post by Veteran to the other thread.

Having had the good fortune of skiing with Dan Egan, it was fun to see him like this. 

 

His skiing sure is dynamic!

The male-female ratio at Squaw looks great!

 

And did you catch all that expert pole-whacking?

 You have to beat them off with your pole? Cripes, I never realised that Downhill Racer was a true story:D
