 got snow ?              News from The Steep, Deep & Extreme International Big Mountain Slopes


Austrian ski instructors and racers developed some of America's premiere ski resorts, coached some of America's top skiers, taught many thousands of Americans to ski, and in the process brought Austrian Alpine culture to the Americas. www.squawvalleyinstitute.org A new and fascinating film by Ian Scully will be screened for the first time in Squaw Valley. The film documents the entire history of the Austrian ski instructors coming to America from the old days to more modern times. It focuses on Hannes Schneider and his disciples, and features interviews with a number of these Austro-American ski pioneers including Herbert Schneider, Otto Lang, Bill Klein and Franz Gabi. It even includes Sandy Poulsen talking about the old days in Sun Valley when she first met her future husband, Wayne. Vintage film footage and historic still photographs accompany the narration of these celebrated personalities in the history of skiing. Squaw Valley Institute
