Breaking Even Ski Book, by Dick Barrymore
“It was the winter of 1969 in Sun Valley. Ski film maker Dick Barrymore had just tried a pair of skis from a new American company. He loved the way they performed and called the company suggesting he shoot a film with the skis as the star. The movie was The Performers. The company agreed to sponsor the film – and pay Dick with a pair of the skis. The rest is history. Dick Barrymore became a legend and the ski company, K2, has also done okay. During our long partnership Dick and K2 made seven films. These movies not only entertained with incredible ski footage, but they also helped capture the changes that were going on, not just in skiing, but in the world. After reading Breaking Even, we had to be part of this book. We’ve been on too many humorous adventures with Dick to miss out on this one.” — The past and present people of K2
