These Paris Manufacturing "Mountaineer Laminated" skis are in very good condition and have Kandahar beartrap cable bindings. Paris Manufacturing Co. was founded by Henry Morton in 1861 in Paris, Maine. It was best known for making sleds and skis, but the company also made desks and other unique furnishings.
They appear to be made of Hickory, but the only engraved marking on the skis is C70. They also have the Paris Mfg imprint on the base, and the Mountaineer Laminated decal on the top.
