Gold. We’ve struck gold!

This film was used to train soldiers to learn to care for their skis, boots, and bindings in 1941. What an incredible piece of history.

The best quote of the entire film has to be, “You’re about 6 feet tall, average weight, you’ll take a 7 foot 2 ski.” Oh how times have changed!

Would you ski on these hickory 220cm planks with leather boots?
