1960's Hart Camaro Vintage Skis with Look Nevada Bindings

The Hart Camaro ski got it's name from the Chevy Camaro. My Friend Charlie Unternahrer tells the story that as he was driving through Detroit he saw a billboard of the Chevy Camaro and a light came on. He called the office and said to rename the Super Pro to the Camaro. He then talked Chevy into joining Hart at all the ski shows. Chevy put together a huge booth featuring the Camaro and Hart skis. To say the least Howard Head was not very happy with this display completely over shadowing the Head booth. By the mid-1960ís Hart skis dominated the ski market with an overwhelming U.S. market share and global brand recognition. At its peak in the late 1960ís, hartís revenues approximated 33% of the US ski market. It was also during the sixties that freestyle skiing became a global phenomenon and hart ski products and skiers were paving the way in the development of this new market segment. The seventies, eighties and nineties brought other great US Ski Team and hart Olympic and World Cup athletes such as Billy Kidd, Hank Kashiwa, Suzy Chaffee and Jonny Moseley to name just a few. Today, that tradition for World Class athletes, product innovation and performance continues not only in free style, but also in all mountain, big mountain and powder market segments as well.
