From padded one-piece jump-suits to over-the-boot stretch pants and floral designs -- they’ll all be part of a fashion flashback March 20 at the History Welcome Party at the Utah Olympic Park.Staged by the International Skiing History Association (ISHA) and Alf Engen Ski Museum on its plaza here, the celebration will launch the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame’s annual gathering being held this year in Park City.
