Storyline

Goofy, staying at the Sugar Bowl resort, demonstrates the basics of downhill skiing, which the titles and announcer insist is pronounced "SHEEing". The equipment is, of course, of the era. As you can imagine, Goofy has much trouble keeping his skis parallel and pointing downhill. The final ski jump conveniently lands Goofy right back in bed. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Interesting story...
3 December 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

... Until today I had never completely watched this short. For most of my childhood I have enjoyed half of this quite a lot on a different video. It skipped the beginning bit. When I discovered the beginning bit on Youtube I was really surprised that I had missed some.

ANYWAY, this is a very entertaining and amusing short. It has little plot (which may bother some people), instead it has a narrator instructing Goofy how to ski. Despite providing pretty clear instructions, Goofy fails rather miserably. The results of this exceedingly unintelligent dog will provide laughs for a good many people - especially if you like Goofy already. This is also a very good short to watch this coming Christmas, so if you can find it on Youtube as well, you are bound to have a good time with this one!

Enjoy "The Art Of Skiing"! :-)
