Stein Eriksen, 1968

stein Eriken ski snowmass aspen 19681/2/1968 Press Photo – Olympic ski champion Stein Eriksen is director of the Snowmass-at-Aspen ski school.  Eriksen’s instruction includes a pre-slope classroom course of lectures and films to “let the beginner know that experts fall.”

After being in Deer Valley, Utah – home of Stein Eriksen Lodge – a little vintage inspiration is in order!

Vintage Ski Pants

01081©anapolitano2012I love when vintage is worn as legit gear – a fully integrated and functional part of a kit – rather than a novelty.  This guy is rocking his mom’s old ski pants (really) and ready to shred!
