ski width history chart
Click photo for larger image.

This chart shows the evolution of ski widths from 3000 BC to current times. It’s pretty interesting to see that things have pretty much gone full circle with some of today’s skis having waists in the 130-140cm range. Even more wild is the fact that the skis of the early years were even constructed with rocker, twin tips and reverse camber.

It’s pretty tough to find images of these skis from the BC era.
