Learn To Ski

Released in 1960, this record promised to teach you how to ski in the comfort of your home.

In this handy little record, the authors have distilled exceptional knowledge of the sport of skiing into simple yet straight forward detailed instructions. With step-by-step illustrations they have presented the art of learning "How to Ski" in an orderly progression of simple measures...

In this record Réal Charette has presumed that the student, whether teenager or adult, has never skied before. He has taken the ski techniques one at a time—kick turn, straight running, snow plow, stem christie, Walden and explained each in turn. He starts with the proper selection of equipment, explained basic and advanced ski techniques and ends with safety hints of value to every skier.

I couldn't find any clips from the record online, but I did find a video from 1953 featuring Réal Charette.

I didn't try to download it, but this page seems to offer a full recording of the album:

I didn't try to listen to it but I suspect that it is probably forty minutes of "Bend Ze Knees!"

Fritz -- I noticed that site but didn't want to risk downloading anything from it.
