The recent thread about how often do you replace your skis got me thinking about how much our ski habits play into that decision. An instructor who is skiing 100+ days a season will probably maintain a quiver of various skis and have to replace at least one a year. Someone that goes on two or three vacations a year may only have a pair or three and they may last a couple years. Other's will have just one pair and ski them for years if they don't get out a lot. That made me want to start a poll to help provide some better context for the answers in the other thread. 

 

Since circumstances, injuries, etc. can impact how often we ski year to year, use an estimate of your past five years of skiing to answer the poll.

I usually figure a hundred days is more or less the useful life of a pair of skis.  

 

My "days" are not typically 7-hour days, so maybe around 500 hours is where they start to become rock skis even if they're never kissed a rock.
