does anyone know anything about these
My father's first non wood ski in 1968! He loved them. We were in Montana, and in the 60's there was little grooming and a lot of soft snow. The Holidays were perfect soft snow, varied condition skis for a recreational skier. I am very certain that the core was a piece of Washington spruce from near Vashon Island and not foam. In fact, in 1968, I don't believe the foam core had been produced! In fact, I do know these were wood as I mounted them and the stuff and smell that came from the drill bit was definitely wood! Nice find!! My old man's had Tyrolia's on them, but the old Salomon's are sweet. They look like 404's.

there's a retro gear thread. I'd post them in there. They'll get more looks by the folks interested in the old skis.
I honestly have no idea. Perhaps a K2 fan who has a hole in his collection would be willing to offer up a nice sum. That being said, I believe K2 sold a boat load of Holidays! The guys in the shop tried to break a Holiday once. They used a telephone pole and were able to flex it around the pole so the tip and tail touched without failing. Pretty darned flexible and durable!
