Having been a part of the "One Ski Quiver" thread I got to thinking about the fact that most people have bought skis from a wide array of manufacturers, myself included, and as such there is not to much loyalty to the brands. I've had Salomon's, Rossignols, and K2s, and although my Coombas are cock of the walk right now, who's to say that I wont fall in love with Dynastar or Fischer next? With the skis it seems that we all move around, brand to brand depending on what we like at the moment. That being said, I've only ever owned Lange Boots.
It also got me thinking about that fact that while going all over to ski is great, most of us hold one as our "home" weather or not we live there. I live in Florida, but if you ask me where I ski, the first thing out of my mouth is Squaw Valley. Sure, I have been to many many places, but I go to Squaw every year, and I am most at home with it, it's my home mountain, and I am loyal to her! I will defend her and proudly proclaim KT22 to be the best chairlift in the world, Sliverado is one of the best places to be in the world when the snow is falling, and that Chamois is one hell of a place to grab a beer and tell lies!
I'm curious to know what you all think, and where everyone falls in this.
