Wanted!!! "The Ski"

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
For retro days. I just picked up a pair of mint condition Scott boots and "The Ski" would complement them perfectly. Ideally, they should have Burt or Spademan bindings, but anything would be fine.

For those that don't know, "The Ski" was plain white with multi-colored squares of various sizes as the only graphics.

Personally, I always associate the Hexcel skis with with Scott boots. The Hexcel swallowtail would be a perfect match.

Sorry mine are long gone.

and they had Moog bindings if you remember what those were.

Actually, Hexcel's would be fine too.

You guys need to check out the movie "Scrapple." It was filmed in Telluride, but is about a ficticious ski town in the late 70s. White Varne sunglasses,"The Ski" sweaters (white with the colored retangles down the arms), lava lamps, [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] and financing the ski bum life dealing Nepalese Tempal Balls. Totally groovy!

I might be able to dig up some hexcel's (not swallow tails) but old hexcels. I'll ask my buddy if he still has his and want's to get them out of the garage.

just got off the phone with my friend. He still has his hexcels and would love to get them out of his garage. He will bring them over and I can look at the model info for you. Then if you still want them, they're yours for the cost of shipping.

I've got a pair Hexcel Split-tails,200cm's. Excellent condition,no bindings. If your interested,real cheap.

Actually mine were black with the colored rectangles. Yes, I did ski them with scott boots and spademan bindings - the bump/powder set up of choice during the 70's freestyle era.
Unfortunately, they have too many fond memories to part with.

I don't have any appropriate skis like the Hexcel Split-tail, the Olin Mark IV twintip, the K2 Cheeseburger, the Head Yahoo or 'The Ski' but for the right price I might be willing to part with some bandanas from that era for tying around your knee.

Hey, UP: I've got some Hexcel Splittails you can borrow if you want. I'll want 'em back. 207's. Red/white. Hub Zemke's signature or at least his name on them. From the era when Hub was making 'em special order. Just before he sold the molds. These actually postdated the Scotts by several years.

BTW, are your Scotts white? Colleague of mine used to ski the Scotts. But I forget what ski. He was a bump competitor in the Midwest and East. His nickname was "Whiteshoes".

Kneale,
Thanks for the offer, but I scored a pair of Hart Freestyles...
Reminds me of the days when I was learning to ski at Holiday Hills, right in your backyard. Man, Scott boots were cool.
Do you teach at Schuss?

How could I forget Flyin' Freddy doing daffies on his Hart Freestyles? They will be perfect. Still need the bandanas though.
post #15 of 24
The Harts would be a perfect companion to the Scotts, UP.

I skied at Holiday as a youth. It was closer to where we lived then than Hickory Hills on the other side of town. Hickory opened several years earlier and is still operated by the city parks department. Hickory is where I took my first lesson. I'd skied at the parks department's "experimental" TC Ski Bowl, where the success of that venture encouraged development of Hickory. No lessons there, though. Just let the rope pull you to the top and point 'em back down for the ride.

I've moved on from Schuss to Boyne Mtn. The skiing and the work situation are both greatly improved.

Still interested?

It looks like I'm a bit late; I would have offered Hexcel Spectralites, 180cm, flourescent magenta color; Salomon 444 bindings (the skis are used demos). They were best when skied with Caber boots.

dchan,
thanks for the offer, but I got a pair of Hart freestyles off ebay for $.01!
(but then the guy gouged me for 17.00 packaging plus 25 shipping) oh, well.
post #19 of 24
Man I used to ski some Hart Freestyles in the 70's. They were cool.

Now you need to get some early Scott poles and some Hotfingers! I used to have some nice black leather ones that lasted for years.

Oh, stretch pants to!

Gee, while we are on memory lane...I wish I had kept my two tone (upper and lower colors) Scott Ski boots but they cracked while in deep heavy Sierra cement.

I should have kept my original racing stock VR17 and Saloman 505 bindings too. Hahahahahahahahaahaha, this thread brings back the memories.

Now I can only console myself with 204cm Authier Vampire Monte Cristo Pros (the woodie ski)...the last production year (made in the Kneissel Factory not Switzerland).

Pair of "The Skis on the wall of fame in the garage. Mine our 2 different colors, 1 yellow & the other blue, both have differnt color squares with T.S.D on the area by the bindings. They our racked next to a pair of Hart Competitions on one side & Red, white & blue 70s K2s on the other side. Also have Olin mark IVs & Rossi Strato 102s on the rack. All of the skis fit into a pair of Nordica Yellow Banana boots!

Got some Jet sticks somewhere in the attic along with some Cubco bindings, A signed poster from Wayne Wong. I think I also kept my Astraltunes from the late 70s
