Between 1957 and 1968 Hans Gmoser produced 10 films of mountain adventure which he then toured across North America. Many of us have wonderful memories of those presentations: Hans at the microphone dressed in his Austrian sweater, glorious ski and climbing images on the screen and beautiful classical music in the air. For many of us those evenings were the beginning of our long love affairs with the mountains. Soon it will be possible to relive those magic experiences. Chic Scott and Marg Saul, in partnerships with the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, and with the assistance of professional film-maker Will Schmidt, are digitizing and reassembling these films, just as they were 50 years ago. To learn more about how you can support this project and to view a short clip of highlights from Hans’ films please go to http://www.whyte.org/archives/projects
