Awesome video here from the 1974 Lange Cup in Sun Valley, Idaho…looked like quite the spring skiing party/race. The video is quite long at almost 14 minutes long, but includes a sweet soundtrack, some awesome parallel slalom racing, vintage gear, hang gliding, hot air balloons, and even a lovely lady ‘racing’ topless with just her race bib, not to be missed at the 9 minute mark!

NSFW Nip Slip!

Some of the other highlights include a dude racing in Wrangler jeans at the 2:45 mark…awesome style for sure, a hang gliding skier at the 7:05 mark…way ahead of its time, and of course the big victory for US Olympian Tyler Palmer, who in fact was the first American to ever win a World Cup in 1971!

So sit back, relax for 14 minutes(or just skip to the nip slip), and watch the way ski racing went down almost 40 years ago!
