Video of some great skiing at Alta in the 70s. Great song and great skiing.

That's what got me too. Made me feel like an even worse powder skier!

That and that besides a few upgrades to chairlifts (and Watson's Shelter) that Alta still looks pretty much the same.

Thanks for that link....brought back a lot of memories. In March of 1974 I had American Flag ski pants, 200 cm Rossignol Strato skis and was skiing my first western powder in Vail's Back Bowls. \:\) That was probably shot on 8mm film like our movies from that era.
