Is the world's oldest skier Scottish?
Date Posted: 10.25hrs on Fri 19 Feb 16
96-year-old George Stewart has been skiing since the later stages of the Second World War, when he was in the British Army and living in Italy.

Fascinating 3 minutes of footage (from Epic TV) of George here, narrating in his own words: "I went into Florence one day and bought a pair of skis ..."
"And of course I've skied in Scotland pretty regularly ..."

Many thanks for posting this video, David. George is an amazing guy, and if memory serves me correct he was also World Seniors Tennis Champion (for his age group) in the not too distant past. Eric.
