Seven Classic Ski Films DVD Box Set - Repackaged from the Classic Ski Films - Set of 9 DVDs - with all of the Same Ski Films!
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 Olympic Holiday (from Squaw Valley 1960 Olympics), Winter Magic Around the World (covers skiing around the world from 1946 to 1970), Ski Down the Years, 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!

  • Otto Lang Films
  • Otto Lang was an entrepreneur, a ski instructor to the stars and an Academy Award®-nominated documentarian. The Basic Principles of Skiing (1941) was instrumental in the training regimen of the United States mountain troops. His film Ski Flight (1939) premiered at Radio City Music Hall, and Skifully Yours (1939) is Lang’s retrospective on the star-studded Sun Valley scene.

  • John Jay Films
  • John Jay was a Rhodes Scholar and respected ski filmmaker, and is considered the grand-daddy of the modern ski-film road show. His film Winter Magic Around the World (1946-’70) is part travelogue and part thrilling ski spectacle with a narrative tone as light as a dusting of fresh powder, and The Best of John Jay (1946-’70) is a ski safari of yesteryear’s most daring action.

  • Dick Barrymore Films
  • Dick Barrymore was a Los Angeles fireman before he earned his global reputation as one of the greatest ski filmmakers of all time. His film, The Performers (1971) ushered in the freestyle revolution and The Last of the Ski Bums (1967) follows three footloose Americans living it up on the slopes in Europe.
