Legends of American Skiing follows the evolution of Alpine skiing from its rough-and-tumble days in the High Sierras in the mid-1800s to the 1936 winter Games when skiing first became an Olympic sport.. Witness Toni Matt, the only man ever to ski straight down the near-vertical headwall on Mount Washington…visit Sun Valley when it was only a dream…Stowe’s first trails…Aspen when it was still a mining town. Thrilling authentic footage and accounts by those who were there.
