As everybody's probably heard, there was a ski jump set up on San Francisco's Fillmore street last Thursday. It was a beautiful September day; the temperature was tanktop-and-flipflops hot.
Observing the skiers was free and open to the public. But many a working folk were there on their lunch breaks, dressed in slacks and dry cleaned button down shirts. And even though it was a "snow day", San Francisco kids had to watch from the confines of the schoolyard.
Observers who arrived late took photos depicting ant-sized skiers and snowboarders in midair.
Apparently skiing down Fillmore was less revolutionary than many thought. The programs, produced by Icer Air snowboard wax company, included a panoramic description of historical urban skiing, including jumps in Berkeley and Chicago dating from the 1930s.
