A friend's family came skiing with us and the son hit a tree due to icy surface and cracked the tip of a new pair of Dynastar (on seasonal rental). He came away shocked but not physically harmed. Poor kid has been snow ploughing for two days on green runs and I hope this hasn't discouraged the family.
About the skis, I am not sure what advice to them. Surely it has to go back to the shop. In the event that they have to pay for the damaged skis, and I believe the manufacture's warranty doesn't cover impact related damage, can I somehow clamp/epoxy the tip and use it for the rest of the season or it would be too dangerous to ski on? There is a visible crack, probably 50% damage (topsheet okay, base damaged) about 3 inches from the tip of ski, where the metal edge rails end.
Thanks in advance.
