    73, 1973 that is. A Basin was a great venue. Second from the left (top). Sorry for the misdirection, turned it was too big to load. Learned a lot there; it was the first time I heard the concept of big toe little toe in a turn description.

    This just came in the mail from a cousin. This was 1970 a poster done from a photo. I would have been rocking Volkl Zebra's that year.

    Stranger, looking at that poster, it reminds me of the locked feet stance days. Do you remember when it was they started to open up?

    I was away from skiing more than a few days a winter (and we were just happy to be on snow for a day or so) from around 72 to 82 ish and then not with a real passion until 89. Floating for uncle sam in the med for awhile and doing education, career and family stuff. The first wider stance guy I remember actually following as my skiing interest returned was Tomba in his mid to late career.....when was that? He was way more two footed (for lack of a better term) than what I had learned and watched from the late 50's to the early 70's and was dominating at the time.
