ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the skiing exploits and philosophy of Toni Matt, a 1940's skiing competitor who skied in an age where hiking was required due to the lack of lifts for ski races. Particular focus is given to a race Matt won at Tuckerman Ravine in New Hampshire. Comments from Matt regarding why racers stopped participating in a particular New Hampshire race, the Inferno, are included; apparently, the majority of respondents felt too out of shape to attempt the hike up to the starting point.
