A Piece of UConn History: Ski Class - 1920s

A ski class in the mid 1920s on the Storrs campus.

Picture From The Past - This photograph of a ski class is believed to be from the mid-1920s. The members of the group are at the top of the slope known as the Great Lawn, facing away from Route 195, Horsebarn Hill, and left, and Holcomb Hall, right.

Below are close-ups showing the ski equipment - and ski attire - of the period.
