Of all the usable sporting goods items clients have had us haul away Junk King of Nashville rarely sees skis. Baseball, softball, football, basketball, golf, even hockey equipment shows up for me to either recycle or donate, but I can count on one hand the times ski equipment has entered the warehouse. It took me a while to figure out what these actually were due to the lack of markings. I told my husband that these had to be different, maybe Swiss government skis due to the Swiss cross and lack of other markings. (Ski manufacturers love to put their names all over EVERYTHING.) He joked and said they were Swiss Ninja Skis. Why ninja skis? Ninjas need to blend into their surroundings and unmarked white skis would do the trick in the Alps. If the bad guys had Swiss Ninja Skis they might have had a better chance at catching James Bond in ‘For Your Eyes Only‘.

Well, I think we were both right. There are only the binding maker name and the iconic Swiss cross with serial number on the front of the white skis.  The old school poles have the Swiss cross with the word ‘ARMEE’ on the handles. They are Swiss Army skis. Days like this I feel like a real detective.
