Vintage ski action photos from Life Mag
Recently I've been paging through the online photo archives of Life Magazine. Amazing what you can find there, including lots of fun old ski photos. Thought I'd share a few gems, they are not always accurately identified. If you double click on photos they will expand.
SILVER GHOST, unidentified gent, possibly pre-1940, looking very hardcore:
OLD SCHOOL HOTDOGGER, beautiful, artsy photo possibly from late '30s
Old tyme ski jumper in WA, 1946. I wonder which ski area?
ASPEN JUMPERS, ~1964
Aspen synchonicity, pretty photo from 1947
Lady powder skiers in NY, 1944
Money shot of the incomparable Stein Eriksen doing a flip, probably 1960s
Kidd, Stiegler, Heuga collecting their medals at '64 Olympics
Mt Hood ski patrol, 1940. I'm in awe of these pioneers!
