Explains and shows why and how the Austrian Emo Henrich, the first ski school director at Stratton, with the support of Stratton’s owner Frank’s Synder, developed a first-rate ski school that featured many Austrians who were not only top-flight skiers, but also accomplished musicians. Together Emo, an accomplished musician himself, and his instructors regularly provided their skiing guests with gemultichkeit (coziness and collegiality) with their Austrian alpine après ski music and dance as their band became known as the Stratton Mountain Boys, a band which became so beloved and in demand that it began touring North America in the off-season. This story is told by Emo, former band member Otto Egger, and present band leader, and former freestyle ski champion, Stefan Schnerthaner. Otto and Stefan also explain the role such music making plays in the fabric of Austrian alpine village life.
