Lahout's Country Clothing and Ski Shop in Littleton, New Hampshire, is America's oldest ski outfitter, and it hasn't changed much since it first opened in 1920. It's been run by four generations of the Lahout family, but it was Joe Lahout, now 93, who started selling ski equipment there in 1940. Joe didn't stop skiing until age 90, and it's easy to see how he got his legendary reputation after watching this film from Teton Gravity Research and Stept Studios.
