Émile Allais, ski pioneer 1912-2012

Postby Patrick » Thu Oct 18, 2012 2:18 pm

Probably the last of his era.

An amazing man who's contribution exceeded his native France.

Here are two blogs posts from Ski Mad World. The first one was done in celebration of his 100th birthday in last February. There is a video, but also a small bio on who he was. He is also part of the US Ski Hall of Fame.

Second posted just minutes ago.
