1952 Footage of Skiing at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area [VIDEO]
As a skier who has enjoyed the slopes of Arapahoe Basin many many times this newly uploaded restored footage from 1952 ( 😮) just tickled me with delight.
This silent film shows early 1950s scenes at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area - with red narrative text along the way. Video shows the ski school, lifts, and a ski race towards the end. Featured individuals include: Skeeter Werner, Ralph Miller, Buddy Werner, and Max Dercum (not called out in text).
In 2012, this footage was digitized from 16 mm, 8” reel film - thanks to an IMLS grant awarded to the Colorado Snowsports Museum. Please consider making a donation or becoming member to help the Museum continue to preserve this important history: snowsportsmuseum.org
