    More of a Wood Ski guy, but I do have one on the wall with a vinyl cover. New John pretty well and started running his parts in the 70’s. But, I do have an extra Bassett with nylon cover.
    Let’s try to work something out. I am always looking for more wood skiis. Trade maybe?
    Lemme know!

    How do you mount your skis on the wall? I have one I want to hang in my office.

    All Depends if you want to use it again.
    Majority of my skiis are on the wall permanently.
    First I removed all the Skegs.
    Then I just found the studs, drilled the ski and hung it with 2 drywall screws.
    If you look at the Featherglide on the bottom and the Brad 4th up, I still ski on those.
    I slotted the drywall for the skeg and found a couple studs.
    Treaded in a lag/SAE threaded stud and put a piece of tubing over it.
    Made a piece of aluminum to pivot up and then be tightened by a nut.
    Holds great.
