Crashing on skis is not the first physical act to spawn its own thesaurus, but it could be the most wholesome.

In 1949, Warren Miller came out with his first ski movie. This year's 60th film, Dynasty, is touring the country now. We have an exclusive vintage film clip (just recently dusted off from the archive room) from the 1949 film, Deep & Light.
