Volant FX-1 10th Mountain Division "Golden Anniversary Edition"

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I stumbled across a pair of Volant FX-1's ... appears to be a commemorative edition to honor the Golden Anniversary of the "10th Mountain Division".  

 

It has the 10th Mountain Division emblem .... as well as "10th Mountain Division - Golden Anniversary Edition"  ... USA, red/white/ blue colors ... etc.

 

Was wondering if anyone could provide any additional information on these ski's; especially as it relates to the 10th Mountain Division.

 

Thanks, Steve.

These skis were offered to members and their descendants of the 10th Mountain Army veterans to mark the 50th Anniversary (1993). My Dad was one of the originals on the 10th and I bought a pair of 205s. At the time I also had a pair of Dynastar 208s. I have always been a fast skier and these would take everything I could give them. I have a picture of my Dad on his xCountry telemarks, me on the Volants and my then 4 year old on his skis. 3 generations on skis. One of my prized possessions! There were a very limited number of the 50th Anniversary skis manufactured and were based upon special order only. They were not sold through any retail outlets.
Hope this helps,
Life long skier and still fast at 60 (I can still beat my boys down the hill on their snowboards!)

My great uncle was one of the originals as we'll! Came home after he was shot while descending in the alps. Amazing group of men!
