Vintage Ski Photos


A collection of vintage ski photos via Neatorama.
When the kids were small we used to ski at Mad River Glen in Vermont and stay at the Mad River Barn, an old ski lodge established in 1950 or thereabouts. Both were run by a neat old gal named Betsy Pratt, a real New England icon, and were so old fashioned it was as if they'd been preserved in amber. The skiing was challenging and beautiful and we'd return to gourmet meals prepared by students from the nearby Culinary Institute. Unfortunately the Canadian dollar's nosedive made it cheaper to ski the Rockies so we stopped going to Mad River.
These old pictures are from before my time (long before) but they remind me of our times at Mad River.
