In loving memory.. SnowRangers 1998-2008

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My beloved SnowRangers expired as a result of a collision with a tree on 2 March. The recent years had been a struggle and they have had been many infusions of P-Tex. Procured in March 1998 at Sturtevant’s in Bellevue Washington they literally toured the world. Burial services were conducted at Dempsey Dumpster with the final place of internment being at the Whistler Land Fill.

They are survived by another pair of SnowRangers now in the custody of an Ex, last known location Twassassen, BC.

It's a terrible thing to lose such friends.....

They had a good life, from such humble beginnings (the worst graphic that model had.)

I put mine (200 cm) up for adoption. Hope they went to a good home.

VA broke a ski too. Maybe you and he can get together for a mourning period.
I feel for you

Is there a reading of the will? Will you be taken care of?

So, what is the prognosis for the tree?

Tree is OK, and those magnificent : ESS bindings did their job. Last I bent some Volants (sorry VA...), this year the SnowRangers...guess I am going to have to let the moths out of my wallet and buy some skis!

I was a huge snowranger devotee. I have owned several pairs of 200 cm alpine setups starting with the original release brown grphic. I also still have and occasionaly use a pair of 190s that are set up as teles. I think that it was one of the skis that really raised the bar. I also think that they are old technology and that many new skis are far better then the rangers. If you are really mourning them I have a few pairs of 200s in my garage I would sell very cheap. They need and deserve a good home.

Last I looked, there were a pair for sale in the Alpine Meadows first aid locker room. If you want, I can inquire as to price and size.

Those skis really had a devoted following. One of our guides in BC had a pair held together with a bolt, and he talked a guest into shipping him a disused pair as a backup. Maybe a mini-thread: what skis have maintained cult status even 5, 6, 7 years after going out of production?
