Sun Valley Powder Skiing Original Poster

Sun Valley, boasted the best weather in the West, which included incredible powder days like shown here in this 1960's ski poster. As Sun Valley was close to California, it became the premier ski area for the Hollywood elite in the 1930's. This trend continues to this day.

On the orders of Averell Harriman, Chairman of the Board, of the Union Pacific Railroad, the Austrian Count Felix Schaffgotsch had been combing the country, looking for the perfect place to build America’s first full-scale ski resort. All agreed the area was perfect and Harriman built Sun Valley, which opened for skiing in 1936. It had the first single chair lift in North America. Sun Valley was very popular with the Hollywood crowd.

Skier in poster April 9, 2019
Reviewer: Bruce Baker  
I had this poster in my bedroom as a teenager. The skier is Conrad (perhaps Konrad) Staudinger. He was a very well known Austrian ski instructor in the 60’s, 70’s, and beyond. A classic... another classic Sun Valley skier and instructor.

Original Sun Valley Poster February 9, 2017
Reviewer: DR from Yakima, WA United States  
I purchased this poster as a gift for a relative. I had it framed and he loves it! By chance do you know the name of the skier is in the poster?

I believe this is the old time Sun Valley  ski instructor, who is a native of Kitzbuhel, Austria. I met him at the 75th Anniversary of Sun Valley. His name is Siegfried (Sigi) Engl. If anyone thinks that this is the wrong info, please let us know at the Vintage Ski World office and we will correct this post. Thanks Richard Allen
