One of the wants/needs of my quiver is a fatter ski. My daily is a 118 waist, but some days need more.
I was hoping to purchase a Bluehouse Maven as a good, cheap ski in this range, but they stopped making them when they moved production to the US, and the increased costs of US production are obviously rearing their head in much higher prices for their skis.
I am in the middle of buying a house, so really don't have money to throw around. I would love to be around $200. Ex-demo, used, etc. is just fine in my book, but obviously there are not a lot of 130mm demos.
I'm kind of kicking myself for not finding a way to pick up a set of prior year Mavens new for $250 last year. I figured they would still have heavily discounted overstocks like in prior years, but obviously Bluehouse is producing less skis.
