Retro Ski Women
From the dance floor to the slopes, the 1970s were a time of free spirits and freestylin'. Skis and disco were in the air as a generation of long-haired, pot-smoking, acrobatic hotdoggers sought to liberate skiing from what they perceived to be its long imprisonment. Along with alpine, downhill conquest came the resurgence of cross-country touring and the telemark turn. It was a time when people were open to trying anything and everything and skiing was no exception.
