Cost of these skis

Hello guys! I wish you happy new year!

I would like your help please. My uncle gave me the skis which you see in the picture, because her son stop the ski, so as to sell it.

I do only snowaboarding, so I have no idea about ski. Do you know if these skis are good and how can I sell it? Salomon is a good company but I don't know about skis.

Furthermore one of the bindings is broken as you can see in the photo. Is it worth to fix it, or buy another one?

Thanks in advance for your help.

They are likely not even worth the cost to ship somewhere....pretty old and out dated, as well as the broken binding.

Those would be good for mounting on a wall as decoration, building an Adirondack chair, or as a sacrifice to Ullr.

Welcome aboard! I wish I could give you better news, but that set up is quite outdated. There are some people looking for "vintage" ski equipment, but there isn't an incredible demand. You might get $20 for the skis, but shops won't touch the binding.

They're not worth anything. Swap meets won't have them, shops won't work on the bindings. If you had a couple more prs. you could make them into a chair. Or a fence if you had a whole bunch of them.

Someone needs to figure out a way to recycle old skis. The world does not need any more ski fences, ski chairs, skis over the mantle, or shot skis. OK maybe a few more shot skis. BTW-sometimes adaptive ski programs can use old skis to make outrigger poles, although that would probably account for less than 0.001% of available stock.

Hi!

 

Skis can be recycled, if made properly like: http://www.zns-ski.com/ (tehnology - see the video).
