Thanks for all that info and sharing those memories.
My ski buddies and I would get together on Saturday nights, I think it was, in the late circa 1970 - 1974 and watch "Ski Scene" which was hosted by "Barry Zevan, the Weatherman" on one of the Mpls.-St. Paul TV stations. Barry had a reputation for being a jokester and he happened to be a skier, so they let him have his own skiing-related show during the ski season. He'd often time just have a brief intro where he'd have some local ski shop guy talk about some equipment or something, or interview a local ski area owner, and then he introduce a movie. I do remember watching The Mobius Flip and many of the Warren Miller films of that era. I also particularly remember some of the Willy Bogner films. One that really sticks in my mind was Ski Vision '73, which if I'm not mistaken, opened with a sequence where two guys in these silver one piece suits, with hoods and face masks and goggles, so they sort of looked like spacemen, started out at the top of a mountain in Europe somewhere and then skied down the edge of this ridge, sort of like playing tag with one another, making these great turns and flying off bumps, with no one else on the slope, and with the sequence being filmed from a helicopter. I would love to get a copy of that -- I guess I need to start looking!
Like you said, I know it would take me right back to 1969 or so. Good times.
Definiitely Roger Staub and Arhur Furrer. It was a Roger Brown and Barry Corbet promo movie for Hart. They were using some Tyrolia step-ins and 5 buckle leather boots. I can't see the brand.
Dipsy doodles, royal christies, even inverted air. All sorts of classic ballet in a whimsical story about a worker (Arthur) in the Hart factory that was fed up with feeding the computer until one day he kicked the (room sized) computer and out printed a formula for the incredible skis. He built two pair, 'escaped', found Roger in the Alps feeding cows and away they went.
Ski the Other Limits, The Moebius Flip and The Great Ski Chase (with Fred Iselin) along with a bonus Yoo Hoo I'm a Bird round out the DVD. K gave it to me for last Christmas, one of the best presents ever, after the red bike (another non-ski story). It takes me right back to being 12, lying on the floor in front of a room full of the inn's guests, all watching these classics.
