Yes, it does seem like one poll would have done the trick. I don't know if people tailored their answers based on the decade so much as Seth did here and there.

Seth, you forgot ski equipment reviews, that would be a great read and bring back memories for everyone.

I would love to see someone take the 50+ years of Warren Miller movies and condense/edit them to the most historically useful 8 or 10 hours documenting the evolution of recreational skiing for some kind of DVD set.  Seems like there would be a mother load there of interesting film on resorts, technique, gear, personalities, apres, etc.

You have to start with John Jay first. I believe he was the first one to do the ski film lecture circuit.
