Did you know…? The Soviet Union participated for the first time in the 1956 Winter Olympic Games in Cortina, Italy, making quite an impact by winning the most medals (7 gold, 3 silver, 6 bronze).

Did you know…? The bid for 1976 Winter Olympic Games was originally won by Denver but, due to financial issues and environmental concerns, they declined and it was offered to Whistler. Due to government changes, Whistler also declined and the bid was offered to Innsbruck, host of the 1964 Winter Olympic Games twelve years earlier.

…and for a bit of fun… Ski Crazy, 1955 – original vintage poster for an American film, Ski Crazy! “Fun and thrills you’ll never experience again! Filmed with the world’s only skiing camera – you are actually on skis visually!” An American ski comedy by Gordon Maclean starring former Olympic and international ski greats: Darrell Robison (US Olympic Team), Sally Neidlinger (US Olympic Team) and Pierre Jalbert (Canadian Olympic Team).
