This is actually a couple years old, but seems like the right time of year for this sort of thing...
I didn't like the video because you are supposed to have ski burning PARTY.
We stopped actually burning skis years ago due to all the less than healthy fumes that the burning of plastic, fibre glass, kevlar, ptex etc. that are given off.
Darn. Shoulda thought of that. No wonder there's been no snow at Tahoe the last three winters--I've been burning old skis. There's a brand new, unmounted pair of Automatic 117's in my garage. Should I or shouldn't I? Nah, let someone else take responsibility. Maybe Philpug has some virgin skis around the shop that will never sell he can donate to the cause. Or maybe the demo shops around Tahoe have discontinued powder skis that haven't been used in three years because it was too rocky to let them out.
I had old sacrificial skis for parts. I'd dig out pieces of base or cut off strips of metal edge to fix
other skiis. What to do with these ugly critters when I moved??? Gouged up and sharp shards of steel
that would hurt people?
I attacked them brutally with a Sawzall. A great tool and great fun cutting each ski into small pieces.
But edges were a bit hard to cut with a fine metal blade!
Compact scrap left that went into regular household trash !
