Way cool!

I could dig going back to that period of time. Basic and uncomplicated equipment, yet adequate for the era (& quality craftmanship). Plus virgin and unexplored wilderness at your doorstep. Seems so ultra pure & refreshing compared to this day and age. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful camber and sidecut on the 'skis norvegiens'.
Just what I was thinking.
Who says radical sidecut is a new idea?
I've often wondered how big sidecut with high camber would work in powder.

Surprising how modern the ice tools look. Add rear points to the crampons and you've got my 1974 vintage SMC's still hanging in the garage. They even appear to be hinged but I can't be certain.

Marlow! Thanks for posting those interesting photos.

Thought you might enjoy this 2 pg. illustration out of the 1967 Ascent Magazine.

It is titled
L'ENFER DES MONTAGNARDS
translate to English as: Hell Mountaineers History.

Fritz.

That cartoon is even more relevant today with all our organized commercial expeditions.
