Ski fashions from the 30s and 40s

Ski fashions from the 30s and 40s

23 June, 2017

It’s so cold that ski season opened a week early in Australian resorts this year!

While we’re busy rugging up to the point our arms can’t move, it’s hard to imagine the sport of skiing being particularly glamorous or fashionable especially with all of those layers. but looking through images of these glamours, from the 30's and 40's, all thoughts of lugging skis (or boards), trudging through snow in those rigid boots and trying to balance and look slick on the T Bar fade away.
