Time stands still in the Retro Zone. At least it really slows down!

These must be rare, not mine unfortunately. I have also read a reference to a model with red and blue stars on a white upper.

That point of view shot downhill is pretty crazy considering the gear they were on.

Looks like there may** be a screening of "Man on the Medal", (documentary from which these clips are taken), at the Breckenridge Festival of Film June 7-10, 2012.

** I emailed Jim Kellett and he's unsure if there actually will be a screening...will update if I find out.

The article reminded me of "skiing the tops" of inconsistent mogul fields. My buddies and I made a discipline of it, always looking for the nastiest bump field (usually the steepest, since the hackers had to skid or traverse). I loved it. Never a dull moment & lots of adrenaline.

Ahh... Those were the days. Mark S. (center pic) was from Bogus Basin & really got me into it.

When Cuche took his retirement run on vintage equipment, I thought of that exact picture.  Dick would have smoked him!

Won a pair of the white green blue ones (plus a bunch of other stuff I can't remember) at a freestyle contest. When I got back home after the tour, I trotted them out & promptly was labeled a fool by the other instructors. Joke was on them, I became the only mogul-qualified instructor that year! Here's a link to me skiing them in a promo video for Bogus Basin (1976-77 ish). Skiing doesn't start til around 2:20 & continues on & off 'til the end. I'm the guy in all orange.

Thanks for the video! What a great film!

post #4453 of 6597

I have been wanting to post some pics of the skis and boots that I have.

I love all of this stuff from the past.

Here are a few boots that I have:

You bet! I only found this a few days ago when you guys got me started thinking about the ol' days. I was amazed to find this online; thought the film was lost. There's a part 2 on YT also, not as much skiing, but a continuation of the schmaltzy theme. I remember the camera guy(s) constantly telling us to ski way slower, but to 'make it look like you're having a blast!' I think that, because it was a promo for a 'safe & fun experience' kinda thing, they left the cuts of flips & cat-track big-airs out.

Found some more old memories:

Patches & Cards:

Bogus Basin Brochure featuring yours truly! Like the flying hands?

And finally, just 'cause I can, the view off my back deck this morning:

(still retro kinda, 'cause my house was built the year I told my Dad I'd be making my living as a skier, not a corporate guy... :)

I went the corporate route -- what a mistake.

I think EpicSki may have found an Ambassador for Bogus Basin!  You should reach out to tylrwnzl and inquire about that.  There are a few perks for maintaining a simple wiki for your home area.

Dude, you rip!

Half my ski buddies at CSU were from Boise in that era.  They all lived in the Ranch and skied Bogus all the time. 

Bogus puts out a lot of good skiers!

Nice gear Sephski59. Especially the black The Ski. I would also like to know, undrilled? Length?  Here are a couple of variations. 180's and 200's

They are undrilled and 200 cm.

nice ballet! First part of video is like looking through a paper towel tube, but at least in the second you can see what you're doing.

Don-Weber   Try them again!!!!  

Here is another Dry land ski. Turf ski by Rollka. Made in Italy!  Between Climbing in the summer and skiing at the camps on Mt Hood. We would take these out. and play with these.

Just another out of the Black Hole!

post #4466 of 6597

I heard that the Rollkas worked better, is there any sort of edging you can do on those things?

post #4468 of 6597

A nice Sunday morning CL score.  1 owner undrilled Killy 800 SL 203's.  The guy bought these in 1968, intended to buy bindings later, got busy with school and life, and never skied again.  The skis have been sitting in the same basement for 44 years!!  They've never seen the light of day until today.  They are as close to flawless as is possible.

 

* I might consider trades for Sideral, XR1, VR17 ..... PM me if interested.
