Does any one know what grit each color represents Toko's diamond files?

Or
Grit guide:

GREY (XX-Coarse)= offers serious metal removal in the shortest time (120 grit);
BLACK (X-Coarse)= offers best cutting action (220 grit);
BLUE (Coarse)= for routine edge maintenance and sharpening (325);
RED (Fine)= for deburring and edge polishing (600);
GREEN (X-fine)= for ultra smooth edge polishing (1200)

I thought Toko used different colors to recognize there grits compared to other dmt stones.

Well, on the Toko site, these three don't use different colors.

Green is 1200
Red is 600
Blue is 325.

Presumably the others track as well.

Now, Moonflex doesn't match the DMT color codes.
Moonflex Selection Guide:
BLACK= offers best cutting action (100 grit)
RED= for edge repair (200 grit)
YELLOW= for routine edge maintenance and sharpening (400 grit)
WHITE= for deburring and edge polishing (600 grit)
BLUE= for ultra smooth edge polishing (1500 grit)

Do non-competing skiers actually use 7 stones on each edge? Seems like it would take a long time

I think three is fine, but confess to using five.

That all depends on how dialed you want your skis. Necessary? Of course not, but sure is rewarding.

A 5 stone progression only takes a few minutes per edge once you get the hang of it. If you're already filing or maintaining, adding a few more steps isn't that big of a deal.
