This Squaw Valley, CA poster by famed photographer Ray Atkeson, features two great Squaw Valley skiers named Stan Tomlinson and Joe Marillac. Both Stan & Joe have reputations of being awesome off and on the slopes. Both have reams of information written about them and their contributions to skiing through the decades.

The affable Stan Tomlinson was called ‘the Maestro’ and taught skiing in Squaw Valley for 50 years. Joe Marillac was the Director of the Squaw Valley Ski School for 17 years. Additionally awesome, Joe Marillac is responsible for getting the 1960 Olympics to Squaw Valley.
Ray Atkeson was taking pictures and climbing mountains as early as 1933. With a terrific eye for composition and beauty rendered in the gray tones of black-and-white fine art printing, he captured sublime photos primarily throughout the Northwest United States. Atkeson received many honors for his work, including Oregon’s Photographer Laureate and induction into the Photographic Hall of Fame. Our posters are an affordable way to enjoy Atkeson’s amazing work.
