These universal military skis are built with elements of both cross country skiing and downhill skiing in mind. They are slightly wider like a downhill ski, but they have an arch and a center groove like a cross-country ski.
These white military skis are tapped for binders (bindings not included) and have a wood core, tap and torsion box construction. These skis have a 75/65/70 sidecut and are unissued.

Posting for those interested in relevant ski bindings:
The image shows skis tapped for a NATO 120M binding (NSN 8465-01-334-9508). There are vendors out there for said bindings, although they do not come cheap (~$100). Coleman's used to sell (out of stock for a while now) pairs of USGI Ramer XC bindings (NSN 8465-01-281-4011). These bindings can be found around the internet as well, for cheaper than a NATO 120M (~$35), while providing the same function (although requiring different holes to be tapped). Both bindings are compatible with a Norwegian M77 combat boot (internet vendors), the Mickey Mouse/Bunny ECW boots (sold by Coleman's), or any mountain boot with a shelf at the rear of the heel for a binding wire.
Long story short:
If you want the bindings that these skis come tapped for, buy the NATO 120Ms, NSN (look this number up on Google) 8465-01-334-9508.
If you don't mind getting these skis tapped with new holes, save some cash and buy the Ramer bindings, NSN 8465-01-281-4011.
Hey Buddy, I actually bought these skis recently and outfitted them with the Ramer bindings, which I believe cost about 65 bucks. I couldn’t find those NATO 120M bindings, could you please share a link maybe? Also, for whoever’s interested, these skis could theoretically be outfitted with any binding of your choice. Just a heads up though- these are not waxless skis! They need grip wax to provide traction needed for forward movement. Good luck!
I have an old pair of these I'm looking to replace. Mine are equipped with scales. Are these skis waxless? Or can you confirm if scales are on the bottom - mid section?
There are no scales. Just plain skis.
It's not clear whether or not these have metal edges. Can you clarify?
Yes, they have metal edges on the bottoms of the skis.
What does the 200/210 mean?
This refers to the length of the ski: 200cm or 210cm
