Skiing posters

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Eldest daughter's criterion for college selection was "it has to be within 2 hrs of good skiing". She is now safely ensconced at CU Boulder, with careful attention to her schedule such that she has no classes on Thursdays. I plead guilty to not trying too hard to discourage her.

Her dorm room needs some decoration and I can't find much in the way of skiing posters (non-vintage and non-Lange "tips up", which was on my dorm wall.) Any suggestions?

2 cents, off the top of my head.....
A) In this digital age, make her own
B) Think of her favorite manufacturer(s) and email them, requesting posters

I know some ski areas give out free posters at shows and stuff. My daughter has posters from Bridger, Moonlight, Big Mountain, and Big Sky, none of which she paid for. I think several of the ski areas had booths on campus the first day of school or something.

Any idea where? I tried various searches (before posting), did not find anything.

allposters.com is ok, a little on the pricey side.

Powder Magazine used to have a few of their best published photos from the previous season blown up into posters available for sale on www.powdermag.com , but I'm not sure if they still do that.

Hands down, the best place IMHO to collect ski paraphernalia is to attend the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Expo at the Colo Convention Ctr in downtown Denver (nominal entrance fee).

This year it is scheduled for Nov. 9-11, 2007. It is the biggest ski expo for several states around. I believe all CO resorts have booths as well as Utah, JHole, Canada, Europe, S.America, and Tahoe. I still attend this annually to find out who's doing what this winter or to confirm what I read here - and to collect some interesting paraphernalia myself. Couple of years ago I got a signed JHole poster with the old tram by Tommy Moe himself.

Many of the ski industry manufacturers have booths as well.

It really gets the fire burning inside to hit the slopes. Historically by then you can already be skiing at Loveland, A-Basin and another Summit Cty resort(s).

A lot of times there are posters to be had for free at your local ski store and at some of their special events you might get a ski/board celeb to personalize them. http://www.dcski.com/articles/view_a...mode=headlines
Agree that any big ski show is a bonanza for this too.

I'll second this ... my son picked up a bunch of great posters a few years ago.
