Film #1 – Snowmass in 1967 (1967) (6 minutes) This promotional Aspen Ski Corporation film by Dick Durrance contains scenes of skiing in Snowmass before the lifts were opened. The film includes Carol Craig, Alice Scutter, and Hal Hartman skiing powder at the top of the Big Burn, which they have reached via snowcat. Also featured are Don Rayburn, Tom Marshall, Mona Mitchell, and Stein Eriksen.

Film #2 – Grand Opening of Snowmass (1967) (23 minutes) This film by NBC News aired on December 15th, 1967. It shows Snowmass’ Grand Opening celebration with scenes from final preparations the day before the opening followed by opening festivities. Featured in the film are Stein Ericksen skiing along with his ski instructor crew and jumping though a hoop, Bill Janss and Jim Snobble skiing before the ski area opens, and interviews with Stein and Bill. Also included are scenes with skibobs, ski patrol, and ski joring, along with scenes of the new Snowmass Mall and amenities.

Film #3 – Highlands Fling (1975) (20 minutes) Filmed by Dick Barrymore, this lighthearted film stars Betsy Glenn Barrymore as a “foxy” ski instructor and Bill Stelling as “Groovy McDoogle,” who pretends to be a beginner student while visiting the mountain for a “hot dogging” competition.
