So I lost a ski over at vail pass today and was wondering what the protocol would be if someone found it? I plan on going back next week with a metal detector. Thanks for the advice!
Lost ski protocol
If you're (sort of) lucky and someone finds it, they may put up a note at the pass and on local bulletin boards at likely stores and shops and maybe web sites like Craigslist, TGR and/or TelemarkTips.
But I'm curious about the backstory. How will someone find it if you need a metal detector?
Dropped a a rock and crashed on the landing. Looked for over an hour in the immediate area and didn't find. Possible ti was only a few inches under and ran down the hill so someone may encounter it and I was just looking in the wrong place. SNow shoes adn a metal detector will greatly expedite the searching process
So between my schedule and the crazy avalanche conditions I haven't been able to make it out to look for my ski. The 2-4' of snow we will have gotten by the time I can go look again is making it less likely that I will find my ski even with a metal detector.
Does anyone know if there is a place where you can buy single skis? My other pair of free ride skis had one of them snap in half last weekend and I know need to either replace that ski or find anew pair. It has not been a good two weeks for my skis...

Maybe the mfgr can sell you one. I was offered one from Dynafit at 1/2 the retail price.
