Came across these articles covering skiing in an archived Sports Illustrated magazine. Thought it was cool, you may as well. Article on new equipment starts at page 8, ski fashion article starts on page 72 (page #s are for the viewer, not those in the actual magazine).
Equipment article only (no pics): http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/topic/article/France/1900-01-01/2100-12-31/mdd/index.htm
I apologize if this is a repost.
