Ski & Snow Country: The Golden Years of Skiing in the West


Author: Ray Atkeson, Warren Miller


Description: The early, romantic days of skiing in the West, from the 1930s to the '50s, were a time of glamour and great excitement. Hollywood movie stars in the latest snow fashions shared chair lifts with the originators of "extreme" skiing. Skiers zoomed down the mountains with primitive equipment, relying on enthusiasm and their own brand of skill to take them successfully to the bottom. Otto Lang, Hannes Schneider, Errol Flynn, and dozens of other celebrities and even early Olympic athletes peppered these snowy slopes, having the time of their lives. Signed by Warren Miller. That era of fun and elegance was captured on film by famed outdoor photographer Ray Atkeson and ski movie maker Warren Miller, who became friends in Squaw Valley in 1949. In this nostalgic tour of an earlier time, Miller reminisces about the places, people, and props that color the history of skiing in the West.
