Didn't Miller make skis as well? My first skis were Miller Softs. No wonder I hate groomers. Same company?

@Royal , that is a sharp setup. How difficult is it to adjust the bindings? I've got skis with bindings, boots and the adapters. What sort of screw would you use in a leather boot? (besides, not too long :) )

I think they are just some wood screws. I acquired the KOFLACH boots as they are with just a toe adapter. adjustment was super easy. I sprayed them with a little triflo and then just turned the large knobs to set tension. I'm not sure I would ski a toe/heel Miller combo and I wasn't so sure about just a toe setup but I saw this same setup on some Head skis in the ALF's lodge at ALTA with Alf Engen's name engraved on the skis so I thought "good enough for Alf, good enough for me"

I went to the Miller factory (?) in Utah in the late 80s. IIRC, the Softs were orange.

The toe/heel don't have much travel adjustment. You have to loosen the mounting screws that are in slots but set screws would have to be re-drilled. Don't think they would have caught on as a GLM ski. The white ones have no model on them but are light as a feather probably an entry level ski.

I thought Miller was proudly American. All the parts say Japan, not made in Japan mind you, just Japan.

Miller Softs all 200s. Purchased from the original owner. h/t to @Lowell Watson and @Royal . The owner heli skied with Hans Moser scouting snowfields in the Bugaboos.

Best of his recollection the black and white are 1971, orange from 1973 and yellow from 1975

Do you think he skied with his feet together?
