Retro-Ski: A Nostalgic Look Back at Skiing

ByGreg Morrill

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
When was the first ski tow in the United States built? Where was the first chairlift in the world located? Who created the Arlberg Method for ski instruction? Who shot Spider Sabich? The history of skiing is filled with memorable people, exciting places, and incredible events. In Retro-Ski: A Nostalgic Look Back at Skiing, author, columnist, and longtime skiing fanatic Greg Morrill takes a look back at the history of the sport, recalling memories from days gone by. In each chapter Morrill poses a trivia question relating to a topic in skiing history and explores related topics through both personal memories and historical research. If you’ve ever ridden a rope tow, owned wooden skis, or laced a long-thong, Morrill’s insights may enliven your memories and make you smile. And if you’ve never had the “pleasure” of those experiences, you’ll come to appreciate what you’ve missed.
