Vintage Ski World has a great collection of 1960s HEAD Skis
When Howard Head started experimenting with various materials to produce a revolutionary new ski, the rest of the ski world was still barely out of the Neolithic Era in terms of technology and materials. Think about it, skis from the Neolithic (maybe 10,000 years ago) up to 1945 were all wood. Snow determined with great precision how a ski needed to be shaped; it was pretty predictable. This put Head’s new metal and wood ski into perspective in terms of a renaissance idea. Getting from point A to point B wasn't all that easy, it only took him about three years to get there. In 1950 he produced 350 pairs of skis and they quickly sold out. (More info on Head Skis at bottom of the page.)

The Head ski was easy to turn, not too expensive and bullet proof. Millions were sold and you could still remount a pair with today’s bindings, take it out on the hill and still ski it with confidence.
Today, the Head ski is a ski icon, as is Howard Head, and his skis are very much sought after by both serious collectors and someone who just wants a wall hangar. A number of years ago one of the ski magazines made a list of the most significant skis ever made and the Head ski was among them. The list also included the late 1950's Kastle race skis, the Kneissl White Star, the Dynamic VR17, the Rossignol Strato 102, and several others. Check out our 1960s & 70s Skis Category to find some of the 'Most Significant Skis Ever Made' just listed.
