Anyone have powder skis for sale?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone out there wanting to sell their powder skis or know someone interested in selling. I want to spend $600 or less. I'm 6'2" and 195 lbs so need bigger ski. I would prefer something that can handle groom too but mostly directed at off piste.

Like you, I'm a big guy (6'2" and 210lbs) - and I have a pair of nearly perfect condition K2 Hellbents I've just decided to sell from my quiver.  179cm with Marker Griffon 12 DIN bindings, which is just right for your size.   

I bought these early last season from a buddy who bought them specifically for a heli ski trip. He used them for four runs on one heli trip, and then let them sit for a season - so he asked if I wanted them. Skis were in perfect shape, and I wanted to try a rockered fat ski that could also ski crud and groomers if called upon. So I picked them up, thinking I would use last season. Then I blew out my ACL, MCL, and Meniscus in September. Surgery in October. No skiing last season, and thus the skis didn't get used at all (two seasons of no use). Now I'm back on the mountain this season, but my knee just can't ski a wide pow ski like the Hellbents... at least not yet. Tried to ski this past weekend in some off piste stuff, and I just don't have the strength anymore or torsional ability I once had to ski the steep and deep. So, I have these for sale now - disappointed I can't use them.

As to the Hellbents in particular, there's not alot I can share that you can't find on Google: fantastic reputation, rockered, versatile, lightweight, etc. The bottoms on these skis are nearly perfect, not even a rock mark. I had them tuned a month ago, so they're ready to go as far as being waxed and having reasonably fresh edges. Bindings 12 DIN, and my boot/shoe size is 10.5 as far as fitment (though you can remount if needed). Tops show some use, because they're used skis, but overall a 9 out of 10 used ski with very little use. Great buy for someone like you who wants a killer pair of skis, but doesn't want to pay a ton for them. 

If you're interested, let me know.  I can send you pics and we can discuss offline.

192 Black Diamond Zealot... The brown ones. 115 underfoot. Kind of big burly boards. They're mounted with tele bindings, so there won't be any issues with remounting alpine. Skis are in great condition with very few days on them.

Thank you for your response. I should have been more diligent on keeping up on this. Someone sold me their gunsmokes a couple of days ago.
