 "The Ski" current skis Nano "Bad Ass Sidecuts" 191cm. ( I should really quit looking at them and mount bindings already)







Yor're gonna need some bindings on those sticks to make them more than wall art....

What are you thinking is the binding of choice for these?

Hope you get them on snow soon.....and don't forget the review!

I have some Look's here that would Scream "Mount me on THE SKI!"
In fact, i think I will mount them on my The Ski!

"The Ski" Scott poles (The black pair have the ever popular added liquor reservoirs. Accessed from the caps on the top of the grips. Interesting, but not the reason why I bought them.)
                                      
"The Ski Bag" First one I ever saw. I never knew they made one until last year. Mentioned in the Red Catalog on "The Ski" website.

I had to quote this post because this should not be buried on the bottom of page one....
Nice!

Love the bag. What are the dimensions of the The Skis, tip, waist and tail? 

Could you take a picture of the center of the ski where the writing is, I would like to see what that says. 

As mentioned, what binding are you thinking?

  I'm thinking a nice Marker 12 Titanium piston control. (But I'm open to ideas.) I like Markers. I'm not the articulate review type. But I'll read others and give it a shot.

   Yeah interesting handle design on the bag. Bobbie is always thinking. Measure 108/76/99

  Extra Sagebrush!!!!!  When I first saw it I thought. What the .......?  Then I remembered it's sort of a trademark with Bobbie Burns.

  And did I say LIGHT in weight. Both together weigh about as much as one regular ski.

You mean a full discussion on what kind of wax to use?

WOW!!!

OK, so is the core of "The Ski" really sagebrush?  Any why sagebrush?  When I think of sagebrush, I think of a twisty type of wood.....why use this (even if it's light and strong) instead of a nice straight-grained wood?

(And Phil, how the heck do you dig up photos like that?)

Sagebrush must be abundant and might be an annoyance to some where Bobbie lives. It is just a trademark with him.

I've seen the light foam core he uses before elsewhere in industry. It gets very strong with no weight gain when you soak it with epoxy resin.


Yeah cool photo! They look like a happy crowd.

I wonder if any of them want to sell their skis?

I remembered these and thought I would lift them before they're gone.

Twintip, you and I need to have a day of skiing on "The Ski".  I think we'd have a riot, perhaps we could get Tog and Phil to bring some stoke!

It will be interesting to see how many people notice. And either ask or comment on your sweaters as being "The Ski".....

Hey if they do, see if they own anything "The Ski". LOL!            I had to try. You know my illness.


Way to damn cool TC!

 The only thing that would have made it better is if I were on my "TheSki", but I took the Marker Speedpoint bindings off them to put something more fitting on them, and haven't actually mounted them again.
