I ask because my fearless daughter wanted me to slide some of the above but I said no way because my Line Prophet 98s are brand new. She was all over them with her rentals. Does sliding them screw up ones skis?
Boxes and rails effect on edges and bases?

A box not as much. you have more surface area to distribute the pressure on the ski. If you're 50-50ing a rail you will eventually get edge cracks. I have a dedicated park ski for the big rail days and they are beat to crap. I have taken my all mountain skis and hit many boxes without worries. Probably wouldn't go mash rails all day on them. That being said skis are a tool to be used. I enjoy them not just baby them. Skis can be fixed (most if the time) memories cannot.
