Yaay.. Thanks to the forum, now I have my own Ski/bindings/Shoe :)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Have been browsing a lot lately, especially this section of epic ski. Really thanks to those who helped me planning a wonderful Utah trip and then helped me with ski gear questions. 

 

I was planning to stick to rentals for rest of the season and buy my first pair later in the year. But then I was going to pay $150 in rentals anyways. Found some nice deals and ended up paying only $310 :)

 

Brand New Head Oblivion 181 - $131 SierraTradingPost shipped.

Brand New Dalbello Viper 10 - $125 Ebay shipped

Used Rossignol Axium 120 - $54 shipped. 

 

Total $310 for an awesome setup to help me get from Adv.Intermediate to Expert!

 

Love you all!

That's a great deal all around - especially on those Head skis.  Now it's gonna sting when you pay someone to mount those bindings.   Overall, wonderful job finding great deals!  If I needed any more skis, I'd hire you to find the best deals out there for me.

 

Congrats!

Ha ha, thank you dude and let me know surely. I would love to find a deal for you if I can. Somehow always been quite lucky with shopping and always been getting some great deals and even plenty moneymaker stuff. Used to play Fifa on PS3 and recently stopped. Sold out all my game coins and made $450 out of it.  That covers my ski gear so feeling happy. 

 

The loft shop at our PerfectNorthSlopes charge $40 for binding mountings. But I guess that might be standard rate at most places. 

 

Apart from mounting the bindings, is there anything you need to do with a brand new ski before you take it on the slope?

Get it tuned and waxed.

And if you call them shoes in Utah, you will be laughed out of the state.

If you call them ski shoes again, I vote for instant ban.

Wait…..doesn't everybody call them ski shoes?

 

I must have missed that memo.  I hate being the last one to know.   Oh well, time to increase the sharpness of the metal sides of my ski planks and add some gliding stuff to the undersides.
