Film explores college influence on skiing
“A Passion for Snow,” a film about Dartmouth College’s role in the history of skiing, will be shown Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Historical Society of Cheshire County.
The film is narrated by Buck Henry (Dartmouth class of ’52) and uses old film footage and contemporary interviews to tell the story of Dartmouth’s leadership role in the ski industry over the last 100 years.
The 62-minute documentary film is based on the book “A Passion for Skiing,” which was presented the 2011 Ullr award by the International Ski History Association (ISHA) for its outstanding contribution to ski history. The book, by Stephen L. Waterhouse (Dartmouth ’65) is the result of a collaborative effort by many Dartmouth alumni and ski historians as a project of Dartmouth’s class of 1965.
The film screening, sponsored by the Dartmouth Club of Southwestern New Hampshire, is free and open to the public.
