Tis the Season ... .. .
for schussing down the slopes.
Ski resorts from Gstaad to Aspen are gearing up
for the arrival of the Christmas skiers.
I've always felt that Christmas in a small mountain village
was the ultimate storybook magic.
Snow + Sleigh Bells = Total Enchantment
One such journey, many years ago, so totally captured me
that I extended my visit and made Aspen my home
for 13 years.
Though skiing was a daily part of my life,
I can't say that I ever saw any visions on the slopes
quite as beautiful as these vintage magazine covers.
Having recently discovered the Finsbry collection of ephemera on flickr,
I just had to share these with you. The coming weeks will find more of her
delightful images ... . . stay tuned.
