Description
 
In 1947, Howard Head was an aircraft engineer for Glenn L. Martin Company in Baltimore. It's also the year he went skiing for the first time. Head was frustrated 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. He left his job and devoted all his time and energy to developing the skis and supported himself with earnings from playing poker.

These skis have early Marker cable bindings and would be a beautiful piece to spruce up your decor.

Length - 203 cm (6 ft 8 in).

Reviewer: Grant Seals from Fresno, CA United States  
The Head GS skis look fantastic mounted on one wall in our home in the mountains!
Actually had an opportunity to ski a pair of these quite a while ago!
Richard Allen is a wonderful guy! Extremely knowledgeable on vintage skis, and they shipped the same day, the order was placed. Unheard of in today’s world!!
Thanks again Richard... I still have my eye on the VR17’s
Take care!
