Skiing Music Albums
There apparently was an appetite for albums devoted to songs about skiing in the late '50s and early '60s, and I've dug them out from the avalanche of non-skiing releases that have come out in the last 50 years to present you with the covers and track listings for these quaint little records. I admit I haven't heard any of them, but I think you can get an idea of the repertoire just by looking at the song titles and the album artwork. Snowplow your way through these:
