If you folks have any old ski shots of yourself or significant others I'd like to see them. Fart bags extra points.
Mt.Rose 1979

Mt.Bachelor 1978-Check my cool welding goggles out:

Mt.Bachelor 1985-Nice jacket eh?

I got a great one of me on some Salomon 1S's PR8's (212 cm). I will post them when I get back from vacation.

How come no one else is responding to this thread? That's because they weren't around for the 210's era! Great memories Slider! We used to use our 223 downhills as powder skis, hugh arcing turns long before the madison ave. marketing of 'Big Mts."!

Sorry to say but yes, I started skiing about 12 years ago and got up to 203's before sidecuts came on the scene. I look at them now and say damn, those things are long! Now I'm buying a new pair this season and are going from 177's to 168's!- Hey Phil, there are still some long boards at Blue!

Check out this super nice photo of a long ski leaper from around 1970 at Whistler. There's some great additional vintage Whistler shots in the owners related "album".

I wish I had some shots, but seeing as I'm only 25, and I never skied anywhere good until I was about 21, old shots on long boards are out of the question. I just wish I had a picture of the day I was making GS turns on DH boards (I think they were 224's) at my local ski area (I only did it once to prove I could).

I'll have to scan some pix, but I was just digging around in the garage and came accross a pair of Grey and black Rossi Super G's (215cm) that must be c.1984 era. My K2 Comp 5 DH's (222cm) are ancient history.

Ott, you say? Looks like Pee Wee Herman.
post #18 of 23
Thanks, Snowdog, I'm flatered to be compared to a Pee Wee (young?) Herman, he may not have been the Herminator yet at a young age but I'm sure he was a hot skier....

Actually Ott, I think young Herman's "Pee Wee" nickname was a reference to something other than his age.

But, your welcome.

Here is a picture at Hyak in 1971. Check out the length of the lift lines to get on the old double chairs......that must have been a 30 min wait at least.......(background is line to big chair)...... They still only have riblet double chairs at Hyak, but the lines are nothing like this anymore.

Does he still ski long skinny planks?
post #23 of 23

Plake on skinny skis

Glen Plake and his band of bump skiers showed up at Wachusett last season on their RV tour around the US. He does still ski on 200+cm K2s...and he was ripping up the icy manmade bumps at least as well as the younger guys on modern twin-tips.
