miss february schusses her way into our hearts
Cheryl’s debut with the bunny came in February of 1958. Finding decent information on many of these models from the 1950’s is difficult. Most of them worked under stage names, such was the stigma of this line of work. Further, the magazines and photographers then made to effort to keep records of their work or data sheets of the models.
It is really immaterial whether Cheryl Kubert, the disarming skier you see here, is a snow bunny (beginner) or a schussboomer (terror of the slopes); whether she is given to geländeschprungen (dazzling leaps) or snowplowing (tyro tactics).
All that really matters is that she makes the cutest sitzmarks we’ve seen on any ski slope, a talent which must surely cause kindly old Ullr, Schützpatron der skifahrer (the patron saint of skiers) to look upon her with the same approval as we mere mortals.
This seems an excellent opportunity to remind everyone that the correct, original Scandinavian pronunciation of “ski” is she. And what sweeter reminder could you wish for than Cheryl?
Cheryl had one uncredited role in the movie “Pal Joey” from 1957.
Little is known about Kubert’s life before and after her Playboy appearance.
Kubert died on May 28,1988 from an apparent suicide..
