Used Skis Value??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Howdy Friends:

 

I'm curious on what a couple of pair of skis I have lying around are worth:  Bandit XX and Bandit B2.  Both have bindings, bases, edges reasonably sound.  The XX's would make a decent pair of rock skis, and the B2's have some life left in 'em.  I have no intentions on  skiing on 'em and I would just assume somebody else have some fun on 'em.

 

Just interested what a fair price I should ask at a ski swap, I'm not trying to make any money off the things or work a scam (not how I roll.)

 

Thanx

Depends on how old the bindings are.  I usually try to just give stuff like that away only charging shipping if I have to incur that cost to pass them on.  Otherwise I do this with them..

 

 

 

Just added a pair ow Nordica W-80s to that fence last month.  Anything I haven't skied in over 2 years is a candidate for the crgildart former ski fence of  fame.  Not everything old ends up there immediately, but most do eventually if I can't find a new home for them easily enough...

$20 for both?  less if the skis are for a kid who looks enthusiastic and not too snooty or wealthy

Not sure you could even give them away at a ski swap around here.

From TGR:

http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php/39772-BEFORE-YOU-SELL-READ-THIS

a pricing guide for used skis. By my calculations your skis would sell for 0. Do you happen to know if the bindings are indemnified? If not, don't even try to give them away with the bindings attached. If there is an adaptive ski school near you they might be able to use the skis to make outriggers--the Alpine Meadows Adaptive School took my B2's some years ago. 

50% of current online price (not MSRP) 
-10% per year old 
-10% per times drilled, per core shot, per delam...etc 
-10% per marker binding attatched  
+10-30% for Rare/High-demand item

"By my calculations your skis would sell for 0."      Sigh...

 

I found an indemnified list here @ Epic Ski 11-20-10, The Bandit XX's have a pair of Salomon 900 Carbon which would make the cut (as far as I can decipher that list.)

                                                                              The B2's have a pair of Rossi Power 100 that wouldn't make the cut, strange I really liked those bindings!

 

Oh Well, thanx for your help Old Goat.

 

Now, how about some 205 Rossi Viper S's with a mishmash of Salomons?    Ha-Ha

That's a four year old list. I don't see it on this one.

Bingo:

 

My best giveaway:

 

I was riding the gondola in early December with a nice kid,  newly minted chef out of Culinary Institute of America.  He was the breakfast chef at the Little Nell,  with a full pass and afternoons off.

But he couldn't ski because he didn't have any equipment and not enough money to rent more than that day.

So I took him to my house and cobbled together some of my old boots, poles and a pair of my wife's old skis with demos.

He was stoked and asked if he could do anything for me.  "Make me dinner sometime."

 

So I ran into him again right after Christmas and he asked again and I said "What are you doing for New Years?"

 

I gave him some money to get food for ten people and he asked if it was OK to bring two of his buddies, one other chef and an Argentine bartender.

This ended up being the year downtown Aspen was shut down by a bomb threat and my house was the closest place to downtown.

We ended up with about forty people and Argy was slinging Mojito's and who knows what else, all night.

My head hurt like hell the next day and the floor was sticky, but we had a dam good time!
