BOBBIE BURNS - THE SKI

Bobbie Burns THE SKI.jpg




Gearheads. I was trying to research my recent score and searching for some product model history of The Ski variations. From what I can see, those TRS that I have seem more common than most of the others Was that the last big run from Bobbie Burns and when were they sold originally? Would be nice to see a timeline of the mid 70s to mid 80s with each model offered during each year. Does such a list exist on the internet?

When I was at the HOF ceremonies, I had my yellow/blue The Ski there on display and a woman came up to me to talk about them. She asked me what i knew about the graphics and what I thought about them then mentioned that she was one one the designers for Bobbie. Right is the middle of the conversation, she got called away and I could not track her down for the rest of the show. As far as The Ski TRS, I do recall them being the last of the straight skis offered by Bobbie and that was in the early 80's. I did recently see a pair of TRS' s in black which I never saw before.

Last month I saw a pair if TRS on eBay when trying to gather more info about them. Oddly, they were mounted up with touring bindings, likely not the original mount. What was cool about them was that near the tails they were stamped "PROTOTYPE".

I saw the TRS, I didn't notice the "prototype" till you mentioned it and I went back.
