Winter Sports in Scotland: 1964-65

Found this catalogue quite by chance in my parents' loft. Some great info - "It is often possible to ski before the end of November and in 1963 skiers were out in the mountains at weekends until June" - and some quality adverts all in a very 1950s style - it would seem the swinging sixties didn't penetrate the world of Scottish winter sports. Good description of the conditions and facilities available on p5.
