Ski Posters 3

Posted by Scott

So I came across this great collection of vinatge ski posters a while back, but unfortunately they were all watermarked. I really hate watermarks and try to avoid posting images containing them at all costs; but these were just too good to pass up so you’ll have to try and see past the giant “ORIGINAL SKI POSTERS” and enjoy the underlying greatness. Growing up in Sacramento I always had a thing for 70s ski culture — Tahoe was a short drive up the mountain and a lot of the style and imagery tricked down into the valley. A lot of these perfectly capture the spirit of those times for me.

So, as you may have guessed, these are all from the Original Ski Posters site, where you can purchase many of them. Sadly, these watermarked Jpegs are as close as most of us will ever get to these as they start at around £500 and go upwards of £3000. there is an open image directory here where you can grab all the images with a utility like Downthemall. A couple seem ripe for watermark removal and some of the resolutions are high enough to get a good print out of.

these are pretty sweet! I worked at Warren Miller for a while and i got to go through all the old posters for the 50th anniversary and there were some awesome ones from the late 50’s – 70’s.

as we discussed in luxembourg: next time you do a europe tour you have to come to switzerland! the places you’ve posted (grindelwald, engelberg, adelboden) are pretty sweet to do some skiing – so try to come in winter and then take one or two days off!

This article was well written and easy to follow. Scott, What motivated you to call this blog “Ski Posters 3”, not that the title does not go with the content, I am just wondering. Thank you for the info Scott.
