We’ve been browsing through some old ski photos and thought we’d share some with you. Check out the skis, the clothes and, even more hilarious, the hair styles!

Our content editor at PlanetSKI, James Cove, is currently writing the official history of the British Association of Snowsports Instructors (BASI) for its 50th anniversary in 2012.

He’s been sent some old photos and we thought you may like to see a few of them.

There are a whole load more on James’s photo album on Facebook.  If you are not a friend then just send him a request.
