Skiing History

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was on the web over the weekend ambling through some old ski footage, the alpine games, the downhill in Wengen etc. I found this fantastic footage from the alpine games in 56, Germany. The site then revealed skiing from as early as 1916 when the French used skiing as a critical trasport method for supplies. for those that are interested, it is an amazing supply of early skiing footage.

i've posted the week below for anybody that wants to see, i hope you enjoy.




see ya on the slopes,
