Last season was the first season since the 80s when I didn't ski anything over 10 years old and under 90mm underfoot. I skied some old Helidogs and really enjoyed it, but none of my pre 2004 SL, GS, or bump skis got any attention at all. They are all stuffed to the back of a closet. I suspect they will end up displayed along the back yard fence eventually. I am saddened that it has come to this, but I just don't see myself wanting ski them more than the other newer gear I have with the exception of Retro Day novelty appeal.
I will likely try to save the 204 cm VOs for Retro/Longboard any potential Longboard day. But, other than that I guess I'm done playing the retro cards.
So, everything in red is probably out to never be skied again. Yellow is maybe, just maybe?

I'm seriously considering screwing these old boards to the back fence to avoid throwing them away. Anybody else found it difficult to move on to the new millennium?
