Franz Klammer Kitzbuhel World Cup Ski Race 1976 Vintage Ski Poster

Austrian Franz Klammer took home the Gold at the 1976 World Cup Race in Kitzbühel. The Hahnenkamm is a mountain in Austria, directly south of Kitzbühel, in the Kitzbühel Alps. The most famous slope on the Hahnenkamm is the classic downhill course, the Streif (streak, or stripe), which is regarded as the most demanding race course on the World Cup circuit.

Also in 1976, Franz Klammer won the Gold Medal in Men's Downhill at the Innsbruck Olympics. While skiing on the 'edge of disaster' Franz won by 0.33 seconds. This is one of the most famous Olympic Downhill Men's Race as called by Bob Beattie, the men's downhill coach at the time. Throughout the race he frequently appeared completely out of control, often on just one ski. All were amazed that he actually made it to the bottom in one piece.

Reviewer: LC Ski Taos from Taos Ski Valley, NM United States  
I have been looking for some old ski memorabilia for special gifting and it is great to know that there are still people out there that love the sport and keep the "good ol days" alive with originals that bring back great memories. Thanks you Vintage Ski World for a great business model for those of us who have passion for the sport.
