    I remember being taken to this Earls Court ski racing when I was nine years old. It made a tremendous impression on me and led me to a life of skiing and mountains which I still love at the ripe old age of 83. I now live in the Canadian Rockies. This evening I was telling my daughter about this wonderful show I had seen at Earls Court and she found this on the web for me. I can still remember the thrill it gave to a starry-eyed little girl all those years ago. Thank you for preserving this little fragment of that evening.
