The YouTube algorithm works in mysterious ways, but I’m glad it suggested the video below. It’s a compilation of home video clips recorded at Stowe, VT and Wildcat, NH back in 1968.
These kind of films need to be preserved in museums. They’re the only way to really understand what skiing back in the day was like.
My favorite part is the wiggle that every skier aspired to perfect back then. You’ll see glimpses of it in older skiers today, but that leg-together form on straight edgeless skis is a dying art.
