    Help to identify a vintage pair of skis

    I picked up a vintage pair of skis at a Maine antique shop and am looking to identify the manufacturer and approximate year. They have Northland bindings and I can see part of the old logo on the tip of one ski. It looks like a triangle logo with an “RO” as two of the letters. Any help would...

    Richard Allen's Vintage Ski World in Carbondale

    The Sopris Sun featured Richard Allen and his business in an article expanding on how he developed his passion for vintage ski gear, both soft goods and hard goods, and later turned it into a business.

    Polishing aluminum......skis

    Did this a few years ago and it turned into an all consuming summer project. I was not sure if all aluminum could be polished to a high sheen but a little test on the Alu skis was encouraging. I started with ordinary, for wood,80 grit on my random orbital sander and worked through the grits to...

    Gotta love a Craigslist find; Unicorn content

    It's one thing to find a unicorn like The Ski Black Majics or Olin Ballets, but to find both at the same time, less than 2 miles from your house for basically free. Priceless!

    Looking for info about vintage black star rs skis

    I don't know anything about skiing, but I ended up with this pair and they seemed like they deserved to be with someone that would truly appreciate them. I was just wondering where to find information on them and roughly what their value is. They do need cleaned up and have scuffs and scrapes. I...
