I saw a guy in the lift line with low cut early seventies Lange boots fitted with jet stix. I could'nt believe my eyes! The skis were Rossignol ROC-550 with Marker roto mats.

No kidding?????????? Holy cow. Almost no one has every heard of Fritzmeier.  I  used to have the Fritzmeier Supercup 560 in 185 cm. BEST BEST BEST ski I ever had. I kick myself everyday for getting rid of them. I was moving to a warm climate and every ounce of stuff that had to be shipped costed. I really wish I hadn't done that.

If, uh, they ever show up, let me know. I use straight skis and could use them.

I do, on occasion pull out the old Hexcel Comps for one run (200cm) with Salomon 555's. Fun but probably not real safe anymore!

My Atomic Arc RS's, great condition, good tune, all shiny metal flake red, Rohrmeister or something Austrian printed all over them, still go really fast. No swimming. but, seriously, a lot of work, never stop concentrating on fundamentals with those.

 At Jack Frost, I saw a guy putting on a pair of Hanson Citations yesterday. They were in pristine condition, I was going to ask him about them but he really looked like he had no clue. 

BTW, great thread revival.

round here, early season ice, all the old race skis come out of the closet, P50's, and other classics: G31's, Rossi XXX, Dynastar 4X4, Stockli Fry, and so on. yup, that's the time of year you can see a lot of classics cause you need a rock ski with some kind of edge hold. The general stiffness of the ski and length of the edge (closer to 200cm) helps even if beat.

funny, when I skied the Arcs daily, they were paired as a 2 ski quiver with the Rossi STS, grey, blue, red, silver model, Arc for powder and wide open days, ST's for making turns. sorry for your loss.

probably the same guy I saw at rose this morning!!.  Always funny christmas/new year/ holiday weeks to see so many old straight skis, rear entry boots and fartbags appearing on the hill.  I guess the owners reckon that they are only used a few days a year so they will last for ever!

I skied with a new Bear today and his cubs.  They are genuine Russian Bears LOL!  They were rocking some sweet old school Rossi 201 and 188 SL skis.  His 17 year old daughter was on the 188s.  Not sure what models as they weren't labeled in English.  Today was demo day at Wintergreen.  They all tried some Atomic K2, and Head carving skis but weren't all that impressed.  Anyway, it was a lot of fun.

"Scarcity" in mint condition still available at Durham, NC Goodwill including matching poles

post #48 of 55

I skied DH in high school up in New Hampshire. I rotated a pair of 220cm Atomic Arc Team AF's, with a pair of 223cm Fischer RC4's (with the aerodynamic holes in the tips). The mandatory "lawsuit" Tyrolia 380RD bindings...the orange Dynafit Comp 3F boots...wow this website is has really taken me back! I had to call Swix directly to get their carbon-fiber "bent" poles in my size (I'm 6'7" tall)...two weeks and $200 later they finally showed up! Those skis have been zipped up very securely in a custom-made nylon bag since 1987...damn I'm old! The Fischers seemed to work better on very hard, icy snow, and the Atomics went best in softer, wetter snow. Man...those Fischers needed an Act of Congress to get them to turn! Almost no sidecut-straight as a gun barrel! But that's the trade-off; if they turned easily they'd get twitchy above 60mph...modern ski technology's fixed all that for us...kinda sucks! The Fischers I found on the "used" rack at the now defunct Otter Creek Sports in Concord, NH. The previous owner had broken about every bone in his left leg in an huge crash, but the skis were pristine; I talked them down to $250.00. The Atomics were a six-month wait, as they only made 300 pair a year, but finally I got to Atomic's Northeast Rep and he set aside a pair for me...$1000 1984 dollars! Anyway, I'm beginning to rant. Great site!

I have a brand new set of Burt bindings still in the box. Not for sale, I may mount them just for grins someday.

post #50 of 55

took these for  spin today.  they were surprisingly fun and easy to ski.  Alta had about 1.5 feet of fresh powder.  and they were even decent in the pow.  they definatly had me smiling.   course HP 203.

Theres a regular at my local hill that rides a pair of these, shes about 5'3 maybe 130 lbs and the skis have to be 200+ lbs, YIKES

Ive seen a few pairs of PRE's and a ton of atomic Arc's

Talked to a man riding leather telemark boots (refuses to try anything new)

Waxed two pairs of Hexel comps for a couple (hadnt been waxed in 15 years)

Was very very tempted to mount up my dads Olin mark IV's for tomorrow (last day of the season)

Dont know too much about these skis since im only 21 and started skiing at 15 however im a liftie at a small Wyoming hill where Nebraska takes over so I see tons of old gear on a daily basis.

 

 

post #52 of 55

that's cool to see the old gear out there.  you should definatly get out on some of it.  you will find it eye opening and fun.  in fact, after I skied a few runs on the dynastars  I swithched over to some really old stuff.  1966 Koflach leather boots with buckles, Chaminox wood skis with scew in edges, Ski Free toes and cable bindings and my LONG Peter Kenedy poles.  I could not stop laughing.  it was soo fun to ski these things.  it was not easy and the boots were uncomfortable to say the least but it was FUN.  Here are a couple of pics.  I have a video too but I don't know how to post those yet.  The gear definetly efects technique.  I found my self using exagerated rotation etc... to get these things to turn.

I'm fairly certain I saw a guy on Head Standards (or similar) this weekend, but I was riding the chair and unable to get a really good look.
