Vintage Ski Style

Gorgeous photo, gorgeous family and stylish mom.

And look at all that high-tech gear from 50 years ago. Far left son with Dual-Taper poles. Second from left son in Lange boots and Head 360 skis. Third son from left with Head Master poles with hexagonal metal baskets and “long-thong” bindings. Mom and her “helmet” with Carrera goggles. Junior wearing the latest in ski gloves from Scott and Dad with his traditional lace up boots and Head 360s.

Gotta love it.


The obituary says her horse riding included dressage, hunting and jumping. "Hunting" means fox-hunting, btw.

Stylish lady

The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia, Athens, had an exhibit of a small part of her collection of couture clothing in 2013. Most impressive.

Obligatory Obituaries

Ann and Moose.

Pretty Amazing Woman

WWII flight instructor, Olympic Ski Team member, expert tennis player, and fashion designer. More here.


That's the phrase that comes to mind when I look at this gang. The boys look like they're named Biff, Chip, Bud and Skipper. The mom, by the way, was a pilot, tennis player and skier, clothing designer, horse rider and hunter, and lived to be 96. She's 57 in the group photo above.
