00 Rossi jacket
03 Dynastar Course 64. Still a pile of ski for me, and in 90-95% condition
05 Dynastar Omeglass 63. Had 'em for a year now, and they're probably 85-90% despite my very best efforts otherwise...
04 Lange World Cup 130 w/ foam-injected liners. I've worn 'em 5 times. Around the house. That's it.
99 Salomon X-Free 9's. I never use these anymore. I hate them. I've tried desperately to sell 'em, and to no avail. Is 99 bucks really that much for 'em?? I think these will soon become part of my downhill chair...
02 Gabel poles. You can't really even tell who made 'em or what color they started out as from gate marks.
02 Auclair race gloves. They're rough.
Need new goggles and pants this year. Both were horked from me late last season.

I have poles that I don't know how old they are, but from the color scheme must be from the early '80's (Kerma: pink with godawful green accents). I have one set of long johns that I still use that are also from that era.

97-98 olin apex nt (ice skates)
99 Salomon Performa Equipe 9 boots (I purchased 2 pairs at the same time as they were the only boots that got remotely near fitting, now on second pair after first eventually started to crack)

Scott poles from circa 1976.

I was once using an old pair of goggles that I had lost in a moving box for a decade or two, and the foam disintegrated and blew into my eyes. - not fun.

Don't get me going on this. I have all kinds of old stuff I inherited from my skiing parents that dates to early 70s and late 60s; like leather mittens, bug-eye goggles, flower print ski pants, ski area patches, brightly colored 3 point wool hats, hooded snowmobile suits, etc. I'm the kind of person who leaves extra, old ski accessories in my car trunk for years. Two years ago I was at Seven Springs, PA on a day when it snowed about 8". One of the teenagers I was with left his goggles at home. After two hours we went to my car and I gave him a pair from about 1977 vintage. They were a tacky design and the foam was all dry rotted away, but still better than nothing. He took one look and said "no thanks" and got his pop to buy him a new pair. Only about 3 years ago I fully retired a pair of 70s stretch pants that I used to wear occasionally on mild days. Too bad I didn't save a leisure suit for apres ski. Polyester forever! Do any mountains have retro days with free lift tics for people who wear old stuff?

I have a very very old black patagonia zip turtleneck that must go back to about 1989. It is too comfortable and warm to give up.
