Anyone recognize these skis?
One of our crew found the skis in his grandma's shed.
His grandparents owned various planes and skis, unfortunately he doesn't know the history of this set.
He will scrutinize the skis for labels tonight.
This ain't an advertisement. He is looking for info.

Pete they do look like an Airglas but they look very short like a nose ski.

They look like a ski from one of those blasted trike things.

Arctic Sparrow Aircraft from Birchwood Alaska manufactured skis that look exactly like those. They were trike folks

Arctic Sparrow Aircraft from Birchwood...

Thank you Dave for your good memory. He can chase down the rest of the particulars.
His grandma lived near Chugiak High School, so a Birchwood business would add local flavor to the skis' history.
And thank you all for the replies...except 40m, SJ gave me permission to change your avatar.
