What kind of skis are these?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So the other day my mom told me about some skis out in the garage that she never used because she stopped skiing.  I got them down and they look odd to me.  I don't know that much about skiing, but they're flat on the tail and they look kind of skinny.  I measured them and here are the dimensions:

The width is 3" at the back, about 2.5" in the middle, then 3.5" at the front. They're 5'7" long.

Are they racing skis, or some other special type of skis?

 

Also, they're probably somewhere around 25 years old...But they're brand new.  They still have a price tag on them haha

Oh they are special, circa 1990.  This is what we used to ski......

Okay well could I use them in modern day?  And if I used them today, would I look stupid?

You could use em, but unless you really like things to be hard & don't mind laughter from randoms, go for it.

 

In truth, I doubt anyone would mount them.

So is there anything that can be done with them?  Would they be worth selling?

    Decor or nostalgia-skiing.    Not really, no.

 

But, boy can you practice tuning and waxing on them ;-)

beercheer.gifNot that I would ever advise skiing these for anyone, yet when I was in college....... mid 90's, I rocked a pair of 70's Fischer Super Sevens for 3 seasons.  I bought them in the Salvation Army Store in Ithaca new & unmounted.  They were great for making friends & having folks buy you beers.  I doubt this would work 20 years later.  Those were 220 cm's!
