70-some years

You just have to love this video. It's made by Riley Hooper, working for Vimeo, who was contacted by Henry Bendinelli to delete some of his videos. In the process of assisting him, she learned from his account and the many videos he uploaded that he was an 89 year-old skiing, dancing, video-shooting Portland native.

He invited her to go skiing with him and she decided to make a film about him.

Otto Schniebs

"Skiing is not a sport. It's a way of life" It was a quote from the legendary Otto Schniebs. It sure was for Henry, who passed away in 2015. Let's all never forget the joy that skiing gives you, how to enjoy life, have as much fun as you possibly can.
