Detailed Product Description
New York, Harcourt, Brace and Co., 1933, 1st edition. 223 pp, b/w photos, illustrations. Blue cloth hardcover with faded spine. Near Fine.

Proctor's book aimed to address "...the American ski runner and his problems, which vary somewhat from those encountered by the beginner who goes to one of the European Ski Centers for his winter holidays."

Charles N. Proctor, the skimeister of Yosemite National Park, had a snow sports career that is hard to equal within the world of American skiing.

Charles N. Proctor was born in Columbia, Missouri in 1906. He learned to ski in Hanover, New Hampshire after his father, Charles A. Proctor, moved east to teach at Dartmouth College. Charley attended Dartmouth and captained the Dartmouth Ski Team in 1927. That same year, he won the Canadian Nordic Combined and the intercollegiate jumping and slalom championships. He topped that season by winning the first Moosilauke Downhill Race. He co-designed a binding for the Dartmouth Outing Club. He had a large following with the Dartmouth Outing Club and was a regular star during his undergraduate days. He was always in top form for the annual winter carnival.

Proctor was a member of the 1928 Olympic Ski Team and the second American to ski at the Olympic Games. He placed fourteenth in jumping and twenty-sixth in the combined. It was an excellent result for an under-funded team which did Laps on shipboard to make up for the lack of pre-game training. He also competed in several foreign countries in both nordic and alpine events.
