Todd - Skis are so versital now, that you really don't need a big quiver. Of course, you might like to have one. I work full time in the industry, instructor trainer, clinician, instructor, shop ski tester, shop geek, Etc... I could really do fine with one pair of skis, but two is nice. Yeah, I lead that life too, and get skis from K2. I could have Axis, Machs, whatever... But I don't need them, and am much happier not switching skis all the time. I have had four new skis during a season, but I really only used two. If the snow/task at hand does change, so does my skiing. During a day at the hill, I may run some gates (not often), give a bump clinic, lap the park once or twice, cruise a few groomers, do some big arcs on the steeps, go OB in funky snow, Etc... Am I going to change skis? No. Do I need to? No. I ski everyday, and I know I don't need more than one or two skis to handle everything. You don't need all those skis, you like having them, and that's ok. But nobody needs all that crap. Simple is good.
