|Title||Seattle Ski Club racers at Paradise on Mt. Rainier, April 22, 1934 |
|Caption||The first annual Silver Skis race was held April 22, 1934 on the high snowy slopes of Mt. Rainier. The race started at 10, 000 feet on Muir Glacier and sixty or so men left the starting line together, spaced 10 to 20 feet apart. The most notable features of the route were mounds that caused the skiers to become airborne for 100 or more feet.|
