Okay, enough bunnies and cute stuff! It’s time to get serious – a weekend of men’s World Cup ski racing at Wengen, Switzerland is upon us. Friday kicks it all off with the Combined followed by Slalom Saturday and the classic Lauberhorn downhill on Sunday. Reposting a favorite vintage photo to celebrate the venerable tour stop.
1/15/1975 Press photo: The two coaches of the two most successful alpine ski-teams of the season: Toni Sailer (left), the Austrian-teamboss, and Adolf Ogi (right), coach of the Swiss team. They here are waiting for the arrivals of their proteges from the Lauberhorn downhill race. Ogi will be charmed: 1rst and 2nd place for him; Toni Sailer can count the 3rd up to the 8th place.
This card (plus a surprise care package) from a very sweet friend made an otherwise unremarkable birthday wonderful. . . and so ridiculously cute!
‘Snow Bunnies’ is an original work by artist Tyler Humphreys and available for purchase from his Etsy shop as a blank greeting card or print. Click here for tylersworkshop.
Thank you, Steph – this will always make me smile!
I adore this fifty-year-old cover of Down East magazine! January is always special to me – it is my birth month (today is THE day!) and very much the heart of winter yet with the palpable sense of more light for longer days.
I just can’t wait another year to post these vintage New Year greeting postcards from Russia – so here is a dose of cuteness for the second day of 2015! Believe all are by the artist, Vladimir Zarubin.
It’s not exactly a resolution – but for 2015 I do hope to get back to more regular posts here on AlpineStyle56. I will likely take a “less is more” approach with shorter image-based posts to maintain frequency.
Wishing everyone all the best for the fresh new year!
