That time frame sounds about right. The 505, you had to open and close the plate, and the 444/555 were truly step ins. Cool skis too! Had a pair of the Jr. version, 167's I think.
Can someone date these? 210cm Blizzard Firebird Competition Pro w/ Look N77 bindings. Probably late 70s-early 80s, but I'm looking for a specific year. I bought these used in the mid-80s and they were always one of my favorite skis. Were they Blizzard's top consumer racing ski at the time? Thanks.
'77 - 78. Skied on several race stock versions one summer. Bent 4 pairs in 3 days. Nice ride but fragile with all the metal. I don't know though, French bindings on Austrian skis... pretty sketch.
