WTB: Used all-mountain skis for around 100-250 dollars (no binding)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all, 
I'm looking to buy a used skis (without binding) for all-mountain use; I primarily ski in the tahoe area and consider myself a strong intermediate skier. Since I don't always get to hit the mountains after the storm (being a college student in the bay area), I often have to cope with a lot of crud, semi-frozen snow, moguls, slush etc. Of course, sometimes I get lucky and get to ski on powder. Would like it also to be a good ski for ripping on groomers since I expect to also do a lot of that... Basically, I need something that does a little of everything (perhaps less focus on float and a little more on power/edge?), especially since this will be my only ski. 
I'm about 5'7"-5'8" and 150 pounds. 
Looking for something like Atomic Nomad, Volkl ac3, mantra (if i can find one for cheap) or K2 Apache, but open to any other suggestions.


Please shoot me a pm.

Dude,

 

For $250 you could probably find a brand new pair of last years skis at fall sales.  Used skis in the range you mentioned, without bindings....$50 bucks.  With bindings in good condition, maybe $100.  Used skis are not worth all that much.  Find your local ski swap and go there, should be able to find lots to choose from, they are typcially on about this time of year.

Thanks for the advice.

Perhaps I should clarify that I am looking to keep it below 200 if possible and buy better quality skis than the typical rental fodder. For instance, I would really love to find a used mantra (arguably all-mountain but much better than the typical rental stuff), and obvoiusly these go for way more than 50 used..

A little bit over your price range, but I saw these used Mantras on ebay for $269.00 with free shipping.  The price seems to be that low because there are some core shots on the base that are repaired with p-tex.  I have no idea if this is a good price for the skis in that condition, but it's the lowest price I've seen on a Mantra.
