Our Alta poster is a classic! In the later 1930s, a group of Salt Lake City skiers and businessmen began to look at Alta as a site for a ski resort. George Watson donated 1800 acres of land to the US forest service so Alta could be built. The first chairlift opened in 1938, with 2630 vertical feet. The lift cost .15 cents per ride.
Alta boasts the best powder on the planet, and is one of North America’s most historic ski areas.
Fred Iselin Ski School, at Aspen Highlands Colorado poster is from 1966. The artist is Garth Williams. Fred was one of the early instructors on Aspen Mt. in the 1940’s and later co-directed the Aspen Ski School in the 50’s with Friedl Pfeifer. The ski bunnies depict many of the families and children of Aspen.
This Sun Valley Ski Poster is from 1948. The artist, Shepler was honoring Gretchen Fraser, winner of America’s first Gold Medal in Olympic Alpine skiing! Sun Valley had the first single chair lift in North America. This ski resort was very popular with the Hollywood crowd. The accordion player Andy Brachli represents a tradition that is still present around Sun Valley; esp. at the historic Roundhouse restaurant which first opened in 1939. It is perched at 7,700 ft. on Bald Mountain which makes it a great place to stop skiing and eat a great lunch.
