What happens to lost skis?

post #1 of 19

I don't mean stolen skis. I mean the skis that got lost in the snow.

I can't be the only clutz that lost a ski in the tree... can I?

Should I plan for a hiking trip in the summer? I live in MA, ski got lost in WA.

At DV if your ski cant be found,, they take the information down where it was lost, come summer, trail crew will look around for it, if they find it, you get a call, if not a packege via fedex or ups.

Could you give use a few more details? Resort,exact location. I've never lost a ski but have spent considerable time retriving buried ones. Powders chord might of helped. Good luck.

Give the ski area specific details . They will make every attempt to return expensive items. Usually the gear appears first as the snow melts.
People do scavange in the spring, so if you can post a notice after the area closes many scavangers will honor your request (naturally offer them something if the ski is returned).
If you get it back there will be a great deal of rust on edges & bindings, so have a shop evaluate/repair.
Sorry to hear about the loss.

They are collected each spring and burned as a offering to the snow Gods......

Shockingly I recently opened my dryer and found a ski. If you find my white crew Gold Toe sock I would be happy to trade you.

Hope no one actually spent time trying to unscramble it...

While summer hiking my ski area, I found a nice 140cm kid's ski, brand new in good condition. Now, the ski boot was still attached with the lining missing. I could only guess that some kid had unbuckled his boots and was dropped a ski off the lift chair. Carried the ski down to the resort customer service office and left it leaning up against the door. Looking in the door window, I could see about six single skis leaned up against the counter... waiting for owners.

Lost skis die a slow, cold, lonely death.

They are with my keys, my socks, and my remote control at a Club Med in Jamaica.

Wood-core skis grow into new trees.

Volants are recycled into forks and spoons.

Want to help pay for all those dozens of pairs of skis you bought? Bring a metal detector to the resort when the snow starts to melt... I have a few co-workers that do that and they sometimes find over $100 in dropped change... And this is from a small, generally uncrowded resort..

Bump, Wonder if you've heard anything about your ski.

While skiing in the trees at DV I ran over a ski buried in the snow. it wasa pretty nice ski set up with a demo binding. I'm sure the skier had to pay for this lost ski. I dropped the ski off at the lift. Lifties told me some guy lost it a couple of weeks ago.
I was hiking one fine late spring day, Up on Jupiter Peak. another hiker was coming up the trail with a ski on his shoulder. he saw something shiny in between some rocks. When he got a closer look he saw it was a ski.
there isa small fortune in ski poles gloves hats. Sunglasses, coins, Chap sticks, cell phones, radios, Ipods and more just waiting for the spring melt, to be discovered.

There is no ski area in WA that has an anagram of "Gregory's Shoe." Did you mean WV or WY?

Lost skis?

Eventually they give in to the nagging of their partner, and go back and ask that nice man for directions.
(if she could read a map, they wouldn't have got lost in the first place...)
