Have italicized the relevant word. Bet most here, regardless of quiver size, spend most days on one of two pair for a given area. Or for that matter, just one. Seriously, that why it's called (drumroll) a "daily driver." The second ski is for either unusually firm (if you're a fat ski guy) or usually soft (if you're a narrower ski guy). The other, oh, say 5 or 8 pairs are for fondling, wish fulfillment, hopes of an epic trip ahead, some esoteric sidelight, like racing or skinning, or represent hoarding disorder (now recognized by DSM V).
So true. I'd expand the range a bit by adding a pair of rock skis for early seasons and bad seasons.
