Taos New Mexico USA Vintage Ski Poster 1974 Victor Frohlich and Tom Carrera

67 x 53 cm


Printed by LooArt Press, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Direct from the surplus stock of the printers, LooArt Press, which closed in the early 1970s.

This features Victor Frohlich in the foreground, who had been at Taos Ski Valley since the start, with Tom Carrera in behind him. This is on the Snakedance fun in 1974. Taos Ski Valley was founded in 1955 by Ernie and Rhonda Blake who lived in an eleven foot camper van prior to the construction of the Hondo Lodge – now the Inn at Snakedance (where they lived without power until 1963!) In 1956 Ernie – together with sixteen men from Taos Puelbo and a mule named Lightning – installed the first lift, the Bridger-Boseman J-Bar, serving the current Snakedance run which at the time was the mountain’s only run.

Condition: From the printer’s surplus stock, in generally excellent condition.
