"Maria Bogner and sister Liesl personally test the new wind blouses."
From here:
50 years of ski fashion at Corvatsch
Do you remember? The first stirrup pants by Bogner at the end of the fifties? The tight ski pants of the seventies, fitting like a second skin? Or the bright coloured ski overall? Ski fashion history was made high up on the slopes of Corvatsch for more than 50 years. A tribute to nylon, spandex and Bogner.The history of ski fashion begins in the thirties with an anorak by Maria Bogner for the athletic woman on skis. Feminine, fun and convenient it is the complete opposite of the usual ski clothing made of loden. Bogner’s legendary stirrup ski pants made of modern material become the trademark of the company in the early fifties and are worn by stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor. In America, the term “Bogners” becomes a synonym for stirrup ski pants and even made it into the dictionary. Maria Bogner presents the stunning outfits often against the impressive backdrop of the Corvatsch. Corvatsch maintains the connection to the company and the family Bogner to this day.

Skiing in Austria, 1930s.
From the book Snow Canvas - Ski, Men and Mountains with a Leica. Photographs by Stefan Kruckenhauser.  Edited by Kurt Peter Karfeld. Published in 1937.
Described as: “A photographic celebration of skiing, taken with a Leica camera usually with filters to emphasize the contrast between clouds, snow and the sky. Alpine skiing in the pre-war days was actually mountaineering on skis, the pictures show people out for a day hike or climb, but using ski gear. Includes portraits of several great skiers: Hannes Schneider, Rudi Matt, Otto Furrer, Friedl Pfeifer, and others.”
Kruckenhauser gave the ski world the technique of wedeln.
