The Official British Ski Instructional Film

Here's an interesting archive film that I spotted on another forum and on Facebook where it has sparked some interest, hopefully it is of some interest to members here too.

It was apparently made by BASI back in May 1976 and is titled "The Official British Ski Instructional Film":

Interesting to see how much snow was around on the hill at the time and also, of course, to see the way instructors were trained at the time and how they were expected to ski and demonstrate!

Sorting through some old photo prints I found these from a holiday trip in the Highlands which I guess must have been around 1990. It was a long time before I started skiing so didn't take much notice of the infrastructure around me but it's curious how much has changed and how much hasn't.
