Know when you can make a snow cat/hip cat pun? The '70s.

Via Visit Colorado's YouTube channel comes this segment from Ski Scene, hosted by Johnny Morris. It's basically a promo video for Steamboat from forty years ago.

Highlights include: Cowboy hats, full body jumpsuits, harmony, more bad puns, some shockingly inane conversation and a mildly creepy ski commercial. Noticeably absent: Snowboards, diversity, production value.

Still, there is something inviting about this clip. It seems warm or something.
