    Cool to see the two Norwegian skiers Stein Eriksen and Trygve Berge toward the end (from 2:09 and out). Not to discount or diminish any of the other great skiers featured here of course.

    Junior Bounous became my hero when he was asked if he used a snorkel on deep powder days. Junior said, no, I prefer to surface to breath!

    Not sure if elegant is the right way to describe it but there is certainly something about this classic way of skiing that is more aesthetically valuable to me than the contemporary

    If you are the right owner of this great footage, I would like to ask for your permission to use some of it in a vintage sports film I'm currently composing. Mike Maurus
