Klaus Obermeyer still going 75 mph at 91 years old

Klaus Obermeyer teaching a class in 1948 in Aspen.

You’ve got to hand it to Klaus Obermeyer. Not only is the sporting goods legend who founded Obermeyer in Aspen in 1947 still going strong at age 91, he’s still skiing like a MANIAC.

Need proof? How else to explain that he was going 75 mph when he took a wicked fall last March at Tiehack and is itching to get back on the slopes as soon as his broken bone heals. Read more about the fall and what keeps this remarkable man skiing downhill in this great “30 Seconds With” feature from The New York Times.
