Blues Ski started way back in 1977 and since then has been an integral part of the Scottish skiing community, sponsoring races & athletes all the way through to the present. Here we interview Blues Ski founder Graeme Spinks, and Olympian racer & Blues Ski Team member Ross Blyth, about how Blues Ski developed.
Graeme Spinks started Blues in 1977, opening the first store in Wemyss Place, Edinburgh. Having a strong connection with the best Scottish skiers of the day allowed the shop to thrive. Here's Graeme to tell the story in his own words.
Ross Blyth had a glittering racing career, being a prolific winner at the Scottish and British events of the 70s & 80s. Becoming part of the British team allowed him to race at many World Cup events culminating in racing at the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics where he picked up 8th place in the Combined.
Thanks to Graeme & Ross for speaking with us at the launch of our 2018/19 season in Aviemore. Look out for more Blues stories coming soon.
