Vintage Ski Fabric – 60′s re-visited

I’m not sure where this piece of vintage ski fabric came from. It’s stitched into what looks like it may have been one of a pair of curtains that probably hung in a family’s A-frame in the 60′s. I can just see the orange shag carpet, the brown couches and the big hanging globe light fixtures hanging from the ceiling. I bet the family played Twister after a day on the slopes! And had fondue for dinner! And the kids probably slid down the trails on stolen cafeteria trays after dark. Ah, the memories!

I’m not sure where this piece of vintage ski fabric came from. It’s stitched into what looks like it may have been half of a pair of curtains that probably hung in a family’s A-frame mountain get-away in the 60′s. I can just see the orange shag carpet, the brown couches and the big globe light fixtures hanging from the ceiling. I bet the family played Twister after a day on the slopes, and had fondue for dinner! And the kids probably slid down the trails on stolen cafeteria trays after dark. Ah, the memories!

Isn’t this skier’s technique classic? I love the big baskets and the Colorado ski promotion.

Remember when collecting ski patches and sewing them on your parka was the cool thing to do? Some “patches” from some of my favorite ski areas…

This jump was probably considered pretty outrageous back in the day. No one had even considered the possibility of a terrain park or half pipe yet.

I still miss those slow old doubles where you could have a private conversation with someone. On second thought, I really like getting in six fast runs on the detachable quad before work!
