The Blue Mountains (NE Oregon/SE Washington) had 11 inches over the weekend. First skiing today--the earliest ever for me. Interstate 84 was closed between Pendleton (OR) and I think Ontario (OR).
Even had a 1/2 inch of snow in Walla Walla (1000 ft. elevation).

Totally jealous too... About both the conditions AND the skis... ;)

From the little we see in the pictures, I would say some good old Rivas? 8-)

They look like Riva bindings. My favorite for any ski that I will be using leather boots with. They arenice skis, never saw them before.

Yes, they are old Rivas. I'm amazed that you could identify the bindings from the tiny sliver that is showing in the picture... Sherlock Holmes would be proud!

I like using a pair of Alico leather boots with those skis. It's a great combo.
