Newbie help! K2s, Dynastar, Hexcel, and Head skis

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was cleaning out my attic today and found the following skis, wondering if any/all are worth keeping.  

 

(R to L):

Hexcel Sundance II XL series= 190 w/ Tyrolla 260 bindings

 

Head Elite series= 175 w/ Tyrolla 180 bindings

 

K2 346-RA= 175 w/ Tyrolla 280 bindings

 

Dynastar Flex median= 170 w/ Marker M25 bindings

 

 

 

 

 

I'm a 5'5" 160# female... Even the Dynastar skis are above my head...

 

Thanks!

Hi Nicole welcome to Epic. While some older skis from the generation of the skis you uncovered have a value, what you have really does not. By "value" I might mean $20-$50 nothing you will be either paying off teh house of funding a kids college education. Now, I am a bit of a collector and gear geek and the only thing of value for me that I would even consider is the Marker M35, I am missing that one in my collection and it is worth only $5-15 *shipped* to me. None of those skis are remotely skiable due to the age of the plastics of the bindings and that NO shop is authorized to even adjust them. Please do not let this discourage you, if you are a skier still, hang around the site, there is other great info to be had and fun people to chat with.

Thanks for the prompt reply!  I did take it to a reputable dealer in town, and he was *QUITE* knowledgeable! He told me the same thing, and since there wasn't any value, or use (unless someone wanted to hang'em on a wall), they were discarded. At least I now know a bit more about the change in technology and plastics used, and the safety regs for the gear!

I look forward to reading and learning more... 20 years off the slopes is tooooo long...
