A Tribute to the Pioneers of Skiing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

A couple clips from Warren Miller Entertainment - Pioneers of Skiing are most definitely worth watching. 

It appears that embedding is disabled on these clips. We'll try it anyway. :)

The videos make me realize how hard it was to ski with that equipment. Glad we got these parabolic things that I spent so long making fun of.

I have an old pair of my great grandmas skis at my house.  Not something I'd ever consider taking out on snow.

When I clicked on YouTube in  Trekchick's 1st post I see there were 44 clips in the series.   

 

This Warren Miller clip from 1984 is #19 has a humongous air in Tuckerman Ravine, does not end well.

Nice.  A couple I enjoyed from this series of films:

 

Advanced skiing for US troops, early 40s, good video and sound quality:

Disney cartoon "The Art of Skiing" featuring Goofy.  They had a foreign language version in the series, I found this English version on youtube:  At about 40 seconds they depict an animated version of the Sugar Bowl Lodge, still in use at Sugar Bowl, CA ski area.
