I just did a count in my head and it's 19 pair consisting of 9 pair FIS slaloms, 8 pair FIS GS, 1 pair non-FIS GS, and 1 pair fatties (94mm, which seem like water skis to me, and feel like I'm wallowing down the road in a motor home compared to my 'real' skis).  I've probably missed a few in there, somewhere too.

Haven't counted in a while, between 25-30. But I'm poor and never buy the current years model, always 3-4 years old and on a big discount. I ski on about 7 of them.

post #37 of 230

I have 6 pairs: 1pr. Volant Super 1 - 198cm (1998 model). 3 pairs Volant Power Karves all 193cm (1997 & 1999 models). 1pr. Dynastar Intuitiv 74 - 188cm (2002/03 model). 1pr. K2 Axis XP- 174cm (2003 model).

post #38 of 230

I don't feel, well, so hoardish, reading some of these. My current quiver, including a coupla recent post-seasons, and many others of which saw no use this year because of World's Worst Snow Season:

 

Rossi WC 9S Sl

Rossi WC Radical GS

Blizzard G-Power

Stockli CX

Kastle RX12 

Elan Apex

Kastle MX88

Kastle FX94

Kastle BMX98

Blizzard The One

Elan Olympus Mons

DPS W112RP

Rossi S7

 

Several of these have gotta go in the early fall, obviously. redface.gif To make room for new stuff, obviously. biggrin.gif Well, OK, OK, the gross number needs to be halved. frown.gif And I'm rethinking things, with an eye to dealing with more variability, crappy snow...eek.gif

post #39 of 230
I'm at 3 currently... 10+ year old Salomon snow blades that I no longer ski on but keep around just because, 2012 Volkl Kenja (harder snow days) and 2012 Armada TSTw (powder and softer days).
post #40 of 230

Too many, according to my girlfriend, who has a few pairs herself but almost always defaults to some old, beat up Head Monsters. And rips all over the mountain on them!  ;-)

But it's fun to experiment with different kinds of skis, (especially when you score em for cheap! ;-), and as I've gotten into it all over the past couple years I've come to develop some real empathy for women and their thing for shoes. Never could understand it before. Now I kinda do.

Only my active quiver:

 

Active Ski Quiver.JPG

 

There's another dozen that I've retired for this season, but could be skied (including my quiver of Volants, older Stocklis, and a pile of Elans).

 
post #43 of 230

I have 6:

 Atomic GSX race (older used a lot)

 Atomic GS 12 pb (older but hardly used yet)

 Elan Jr. GS race

 Dynastar Omeglass SL (older but still works)

 Dynastar Exclusive Legend (old enough that it used to be called a mid-fat at 75mm)

 Kastle FX 94

 

I'll have to give some thought before adding or I may need a color coded data base for them.

post #44 of 230

Zero.  I rent.  My ski trips require a 7 hour flight followed by several hours more of trains and buses.  Not practical to lug skis with me.  I do have my own boots.

post #45 of 230

OUCH!  Just did an inventory check! eek.gif    Time for another closet clearance sale to get back to manageable proportions This season I have been doing quite a bit of experimenting with race skis and refining what works best for me. Has resulted in some findings that have surprised me such as finding the 27m GS skis actually work for me and that i now prefer a 165 Sl to a 155..  As a result need to clear a few and still on the hunt for a couple of additions ( a 205 SG for example).  So for anyone looking for good used race skis, here is early notice of what will be coming to gear swap!  smile.gif   Also, I have skied all but 4 of them and will close that gap as I get the DH skis out next week)

Atomicman, or anyone else for that matter, interested in new Line Influence 105 skis to add to your collection?  186 cm.

I've only used two pairs in recent years. One is of the nordic downhill type and the other is a backcountry touring ski. Why? The first for skiing lift served hills, the second for hills that are not served by lifts.

 

I also snowboard sometimes, so can I say 2 1/2 pairs? smile.gif The snowboard is big mountain type (169cm) but I use it only on small mountains.

East coast location with usually a one-week trip to Vail.  Level 7, ski some bumps, but want to learn more. 


Nordic downhill. The extra range of vertical motion freeheel bindings provide is a great asset in moguls.

Atomic Izor 168cm - lightweight, highly manoeuvrable, lots of fun as long as they don't encounter ice (no edge hold)

Salomon 24 hours 172cm - heavy, stiff, super stable and fun at high speed on icy surface (we get that a lot in the East)

Kneissl White Star 200cm - great for making sparks when surfing on rocks and to make new friends on the chair lift

Ski Racer,

I see you are getting non D2 SLs for the coming year and have both currently. What are the performance differences? (sorry for the minor thread hijack)

Um...the D2 SLs are great skis, I just got a deal on a pair of non-D2s and X-16 bindings back in early Feb so I snapped 'em up. The D2 SLs are really good skis, but being a fairly short ski, it's like the front of the ski bends almost a little too easily. The non-D2s are really beefy and you need to really pressure the front to get the turn started...but I think they carve a cleaner arc, stay in the fall line a little better, and have more energy and less skittishness in the transition. The D2s are now kind of my every day driver. So...why am I getting so many SL and GS skis? Well, next year, I can still get what I want, the year after, given what the FIS is doing to the GS regs, no way of telling, so I'm stocking up.  I also got a pair of 158 non-D2 SLs.  I'm fairly big...not tall, but big...and I don't have any reason to think I need to go shorter than 165.  But one of the guys who is the fastest in my class is now skiing on a 158, so I thought I'd try a pair...

I always watched with amazement.  Thinking it's too hard on the knees.
