Vid of the Week: Roller Skiing from the 1950s


These vintage models should be put back into production at once. I know they still make them for summertime training for Nordic skiers, but they don’t look nearly as cool or burly as these ones. After the rise of cross-country skiing in the 1950′s, no snow was no longer a problem with the creation of these beauties. I think Whistler could use some of this old fashioned ski culture — why doesn’t someone start a race so we can laugh our asses off at people when they wipe out and get bloody knees?!

“Add a saddle and Bob’s your uncle.” Ha!

Seems like everything was done with better style back in the day anyways. Who needs a helmet when you never wipe out, even behind a motorcycle.
