Christmas movies

Here’s wishing everyone a happy and safe Christmas with a couple of films of how it used to be back in the 1970s. Long skis, spandex pants, and lots of facial hair.

Imagine taking the tram at les Grands Montets with not a track on the snow?

A wonderful video, thanks. I learnt to ski in the 70’s but it was not until this Christmas that I first saw myself on camera (due to the recent viral spread of GoPro’s). It was an uncomfortable experience (seeing myself) but at least I now understand where I get my pole planting technique.....some habits die hard.

... and don’t forget the monoski (more start of the 80s than the 70’s I reckon) which is coming back now!
