This popped up on youtube this morning. Pretty cool. Many of the the women skiers here were staples on the tour in the 90's and many eventually made the hall of fame.

    I love the background music. Gives it a cool 80s feel. Genesis -Tonight Tonight Tonight. Wasn't that on a Michelob commercial back in the day? Pointer Sisters- Neutron Dance. INXS. etc.

    I transfered the year before that, probably would have been there if I hadn't.

    I was there. Who else was?

    I didn't realize Jason Paredes was such a good 3 event skier.

    I was a freshman the following year.

    after studying Matt Brown's gate in this video I'm never taking crap from him about my gate again

    @Booze I wasn't there in '88 but my team (Southwest Texas State) qualified for Nationals in '90, hosted by NLU. It was awesome to go to Nationals back in those days because only 2 schools per region qualified - no D2. The video of the '88 Nationals brings back some great memories of the skiers, boats, skis and neon jump suits! Collegiate skiing was a great time and there was a lot of extra curricular activities at every tournament too! The jumpers we jumped on look like trick skis to me now! :D

    @Horton I agree, some of the worst gates I’ve ever seen.
