A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Downhill Collection - DOWNHILL SKIING has been described as a thrilling sport interspersed with moments of downright sheer terror. As a sport it is enjoyed at your own pace, fast or slow, black or green, steep or flat, professional or weekender, and has been around for an incredibly long time. Skis, scientifically dated back to 2,500 BC, have been found and are on display in Scandinavian museums today. Runic stones 3,000 years old clearly show details that resemble today's skis to an amazing degree. The 1932 Winter Olympic games in Lake Placid, New York was followed by tremendous enthusiasm for all winter sports, but especially downhill skiing. The first tow ropes in North America appeared in 1932 at Foster's Hill at Shaw Bridge in Canada, using an old Dodge chassis, a series of pulleys and wheels, and a rope spliced end to end. The first U.S. version appeared at Woodstock in 1934 using a Model T Ford. 1936 saw the J-Bar developed in Wisconsin, and some non-skiing engineers from the Union Pacific Railroad developed the world's first chair lift in a place that became known as Sun Valley, Idaho, where the term "Ski Bum" first became acceptable.
