Kids skis are in the kids closets, they are just rec skiers with 2 pairs each, one they use and a size a bit bigger.  Finding places to stash mine in our tiny 3BR 2 bath home is a different matter, no garage either.  Some collectable older ones tucked away in the living room tucked away behind the coat rack by the front door.  4 pairs are stashed behind a corner kitchen pantry cabinet that has felt under it to slide out when I need to get back there.  3 more pairs tucked away in my bedroom closet.  Under beds is a popular place folks here fill up with skis, but mom has bins of wrapping paper and gift boxes and soft sided luggage and travel stuff hidden away there.

 

When I bring in something new I have to get rid of something... I retire them out back if nobody expresses interest in taking them elsewhere.. At least I can look at them while grilling dinner or hanging out on the deck.

Took the picture right after I packed everything away for the summer, hence the kinda cramped storage situation. The 180cm stuff is mine, fiancé has the 180cm skis. And yes, we both quite like our RAMP skis.
From back to front:
185cm Nordica Enforcer
159cm RAMP Groundhog
179cm RAMP Kumoniwannaskiya
180cm RAMP The Bigbambooski
180cm Rossignol Experience 88

Hey Mark, 

 

How did that Marker Xcell 16 feel on the Blizz GS?  Feel any difference from the Comp 16/20 on the blizz magnesium or pretty comparable?  Have one lined up to mount on a '15 Nordica GS and the toe piece feels pretty light, which I like.

Didn't really think about it one way or the other. If you're running a lot of gates and wacking things, I'd probably say go with the Comp.

There have been some issues with the xcel 16s cracking up (there is a lot of plastic in them) and I have seen issues with both the toe and the heel.  The olde Comps are a better bet in that respect and the Xcel 18 and 20 are a lot more robust with more metal.  Most of beth WC guys still seem to be on the old binding.  Having said that, on a GS ski you should be ok, if you are hitting GS gates with the ski you have bigger issues!   :)

What I own; what I actually ski; what I would take on a western or European flight trip.

These are just my skis.  My guy has 3 pairs with the 4th arriving in a few days.  Our poor storage unit is going to explode.  Not to mentioned I'm worried what the heck our living room will look like come winter. We also bring in the palm tree and lemon street for the winter and they are pretty big.   I will likely leave my teaching skis at my home mountain as they'll give me a locker.  Michael will sell his Atomic Blackeyes so that'll get rid of 2 of the pairs.  I know compared to many we don't even have a lot but this is a lot for us.

Meh, that's nuthin'.     I have to put ski racks on the third wall - we have >40 pairs between the two of us if you count snowblades and nordic gear.

Sigh. Snowbird closed Memorial Day weekend and I find myself just looking at the rack in the garage. They're not all mine, they just seem to collect here...

2 sets of BBRs and 2 sets of Volants?  *applause*   You really should let the Redster &c. be more photogenic tho. ;)

Meh. I'm embarrassed even to post pictures of my racks. One time Keith at Praxis threatened to close down my ordering privileges until I produced a note from my shrink... 

 

It is all made the worse by my laziness in selling off skis that I really should part with...

I've updated my photo to include my Kastles.  These are mine, doesn't include my guy's.  This isn't even a lot I know.  I will likely be selling the older Charismas (2nd pair from the left).  I was going to use them for rock skis but we honestly don't have a lot of room.  No garage so when the skis come home from climate controlled storage we have upwards of 10 pairs of skis in the living room.

One day I hope to have a garage or at least a ski room of some kind.

Mix of skis for me, my son and daughter.   I just added a pair of Atomic Redster SL 130's for my daughter.
