The skis on the right are of a traditional design - (I scraped two lines around the length of the ski and put no other words, graphics, or markings on them). They are also fitted with a 3 pin binding and made out of a solid piece of Maple.
I am currently nearing the end of the design phase of my laminate ski model currently being called the "Øverbø". Øverbø is the birthplace of Sondre Norheim which my wife and I visited while in Norway. Sondre is given credit for designing the telemark style ski that utilizes a sidecut as well designing the first free heel binding. Being the birthplace of the 'father of modern day skiing' I thought Øverbø would be a great name for this ski. The ski is also a backcountry/telemark ski.
The photo on the left is of my wife in between Morgedal and Øverbø. On the right is from Øverbø. A great website to check out is www.morgedal.com - it is home to an amazing ski museum as well as some great people! It is a close and beautiful hike from Morgedal to Sondre Norheim's house.
