It’s all about keeping yourself busy in the off season. Mountain biking and hiking are great summertime activities, but if you’re looking for a new hobby, consider starting a collection of vintage ski posters. These nostalgic gems once graced magazines as far back as the early 1920s; they’re a classic insignia of skiing’s rich history. They make for great conversation starters, wall decorations and gifts. These days they’re also easy to purchase online.
Below you’ll find some of the most iconic vintage ski posters of our time.
If you’ve still got a serious hankering to ski, don’t forget it’s winter in South America.
Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com managing the website and blog content, I couldn't be happier. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
