A marvelous account of early American skiing from gold mining camps to the hell bent racing of the 1930's
Produced and directed by Richard W. Moulton, this documentary is a ski history landmark. A masterful blend of oral histories, authentic film footage, and narrative tell the fascinating story of skiing from the California gold camps to the rise of Ski Jumping to the birth of Alpine. A magical trip back to the first days of skiing in America which preserves the memories, stories and spirit of pioneers who lived it.
The DVD combines the complete Director's Cut of the feature documentary with the punch from added action-scenes of the more commercial PBS version. Loaded with added values, this two disc set features a photo gallery of great stills - 1860s through the 1930s. The time line scene access to both productions provides a context for the events shaping the beginnings of Alpine skiing. There are individual biographies for 50 of Skiing's Pioneers; the 25 featured in the film, and 25 additional ski pioneers are presented here. Finally, an optional director’s audio track provides an insightful commentary from Rick Moulton, the film’s Producer/Director.
