The Dartmouth Winter Carnival is the oldest collegiate winter festival in the United States. It was started by the college’s Outing Club who wanted to encourage skiing, which was a young sport at the time in 1910. Attempts by nearby colleges were made to defeat Dartmouth men at skiing and snowshoeing events, which quickly grew into one of the most well-known weekends in the country. The carnival still takes place every year in Hanover, New Hampshire. Jantzen sportswear brand was able to sponsor the event in the year this poster was created, around 1955.
