St. Anton Hannes Schneider Magnet
St. Anton Hannes Schneider Refrigerator magnet, 3 1/4 x 1 3/4 inches. Also comes in poster size.
Hannes Schneider, born in Stuben am Arlberg, Austria, in 1890. He is called the founding father of ski instruction. As a ski instructor he developed what came to be called the Arlberg technique, (or deep-crouch method) based on the snowplow, stem, and stem christie turns. This turn superseded the old-fashioned Telemark turn. Hannes served with the Austrian Mountain Troops in WWI. Then in 1930 was invited to Japan to teach 3,500 students how to ski, in four weeks time! He helped popularize skiing in the United States when he moved to North Conway, NH in 1939. Mt. Cranmore still honors him with a special race called the Hannes Schneider Meister Cup. His famous ski schools are represented here, as the competent teacher, aware of every bunny's move.
Size 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches.
