The Hanover Historical Society is sponsoring a showing of the film, Passion for Snow, on Wednesday, Feb. 25th, at 7:00 p.m., in the Mayer Room of the Howe Library. Please spread the word to friends and family. Passion for Snowproduced by the Dartmouth College Class of 1965, tells about the role that Dartmouth College, the town of Hanover, and the Ford Sayre program played in developing the U.S. ski industry. The film covers: the beginning of collegiate skiing in 1910; the development of current day ski racing techniques like the slalom (1925), downhill (1927), and giant slalom (1937); the start of the Winter Olympics; the founding/developing of most major US Ski Resorts; the U.S. Army Mountain troops in WW II; and the training of disabled skiers.  With old film footage, new interviews and period music, the film shows how Dartmouth and Hanover utilized their fortunate placement in snow country to have a phenomenal influence over winter activities worldwide.The film was nominated for an Emmy and won the Outdoor Writers’ Association First Place award as Ski History Film of the Year.
