Walt Disney skiing

Just a great early to mid-30s photo of Walt Disney and the large-sized Mickey Mouse Charlotte Clark doll seen in many early promotional shots. Click here to read an earlier post about these dolls.

Walt Disney was an avid skier and there are many 1930s newspaper articles that detail trips he made to local California resorts. Who said Walt didn't have a sense of humor?

I wonder if this photo was taken at Yosemite in January 1935? The outfit Walt Disney wears is almost an exact match of the one he wears in the image I posted on my blog here.
