You Know You're an Ancient Skier If: A Book Review

"You Know You're an Ancient Skier If"
is a delightful little book of quips and cartoons for those who are young at heart but not so young elsewhere. With drawings by Bob Cram and text by Irv Pratt, this slim volume collect humor by and about the Pacific Northwest's "Ancient Skiers Club" but relevant to those who have grown into the role without the title.

The Ancient Skiers Club was formed by skiers who remembered skiing with friends at Snoqualmie Summit, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, Stevens Pass and Mt. Hood before World War II and before there were any lifts. You may recognize yourself in some of these one-liners or you might remember names such as Wally Burr or Ken Syverson. 

If you know what a "Ruade" is or if you ever wore a long skirt when you first started skiing ... or you want to learn about those who did ... this is for you!
