Martin Peikert’s poster for the Swiss ski racing championships of 1939 is full of energy and dynamism. The winner that year was Karl Molitor from Wengen. He went on to win two medals at the Olympic Winter Games of 1948 in St. Moritz and became the most successful skier in the history of the Lauberhorn ski races.
