More Vintage – Skiing the Grands Montets in the ’70s

Its not that we’re not happy with modern ski videos, we’re just loving these old ones just now. Dick Barrymore (Powder magazine interview) was a legend and a pioneer in ski filming and dedicated 30 years of his life to it. Here are two of the many he shot around the Chamonix valley, both of Grand Montet one follows a group of ‘pros’ (including the smoothest mono skier I’ve seen, a local obviously) and the other of the Grand Montet Derby which has some great shots of Chamonix in the 70’s.
