Film #1 – Yoo Hoo I’m a Bird (c. 1967) (26 minutes) A film by Fred Iselin that begins with Fred at Aspen Highlands and then follows him on brief tours of several other ski areas. The film touches on Fred’s unique and groundbreaking instructing approach. The final scenes include freestyle skiing and emphasize the feeling of freedom that skiing provides, like that of a bird in flight.

Film #2 – A clip from The Best of John Jay (c. 1965) (23-minute section)
Widely regarded as the “father” of the ski film in its modern form, Jay was particularly adept at filming from a pair of fast-moving skis. This film is described as “A Vail-to-Zermatt greatest-hits compilation from this prolific ski-cinema patriarch, serving up a pioneering pan-global ski safari of yesteryear’s most daring action.“ This specific clip features ski scenes from Taos, Vail, and Aspen.
