Alta in 1971

By | October 11, 2010

Last November I posted a clip of Vintage Alta Powder that Mark Johnson originally posted to YouTube and then AltaCam. Folks loved it! In fact it’s still in the top 5 Google results for the search term “Alta Powder”. Not too shabby, eh?

Anyways Mark posted another great piece of vintage Utah skiing footage to AltaCam last month, so I thought I would bring it to SBP as well. Incidentally it is footage from the year I was born 🙂 Let me know what you think and thanks again Mark for sharing these. Great job all around!

I finally digitized the film of our trip to Alta during during Spring break, 1971. This short reel (?3 min) is a companion to the slide show that is already a featured topic on this site. You’ll note that some skiers had problems with the loose snow and terrain. There was plenty of snow (as is still the case in March) and great times. Also note the that there was quite a bit of traffic while driving up Little Cottonwood.
