Relive the Golden Age of Skiing - from 1940s Hollywood coming to Sun Valley, Idaho for lessons, to the birth of hot-dogging in the 1970s. This is one of the best ski film collections you can buy -- all on DVD! It includes John Jay's Winter Magic Around the World (covers skiing around the world from 1946 to 1970) and Best of John Jay (also shows skiing around the world from 1946 to 1970).
The Box Set includes Otto Lang's DVDs Basic Principles, Ski Flight and Skillfully Yours. AND PERHAPS THE BEST, two of Dick Barrymore's films are in the box: The Performers, and Last of the Ski Bums.
Made for a mere $12,000 (by ski bums), and released as a feature film, The Last of the Ski Bums was the marked departure of ski film making that led directly to our modern skiing adventure films. Includes amazing footage of early powder skiing, including double-lens goggle inventor Bob Smith getting Jackson Hole face shots. We can't recommend this film enough -- and to have the others in the same set -- incredible! Seven classic ski films on 6 DVDs, beautiful packaged, perfect gift!
