“By 1947 the Associated Press was calling Steamboat Springs “Ski Town, USA”. It declared that of the 1700 residents, 1685 were skiers.”

If you’re a Steamboat skier you’ll appreciate this archival footage of dudes with ski poles as long as canoe oars blasting pencil leg straight airs while rolling up the windows with a certain authenticity (oh yeah they actually did roll up windows back then duh).  Take notes on these folks fashion, Steamboat looked like a pitched runway back in the day. Daddy-O these are some cool cats.
