1950's Head Standard Vintage Metal Skis

In 1947, Howard Head was an aircraft engineer for the Glenn L. Martin Company in Baltimore, and he skied for the first time. Head was unhappy with the quality of the clumsy and heavy wooden skis, which made skiing very difficult for beginners. He decided to develop a lighter and more efficient ski that could make skiing much easier for everyone.

This is one of Howard's early skis from the early 50's. The tips were much rounder than their 60's counterparts. These early metal skis have Nevada toes with Salomon Lift cables and are some of the most popular skis on the planet.
