Now that it is a much larger blur, I can easily estimate that I have no idea.

I like the moire pattern tho, and the different coloration closer to the edges, along with the apparent pattern curvature shift forwards within the darker band. In the previous incarnation of the bottom image, the edges appeared over 1.2mm thick, so , tossing all that, and the OP's location into the wild-ass (onager) guess mix, & setting fire to said mix's tail, I am going to say:

15 days since last grind, one grind since skis new, ~30 days before that, maybe 50 days total.

Humm, hard to tell without a side shot of how much or little camber. It would also give a clue as to how many times they have been ground or filed if I could see a profile shot of the edge.:

Well, there's better photos of the Loch Ness monster..
I don't think it's possible to tell.

Skier has hit some rocks and hasn't filed edges since. Maybe stoned them - no I doubt that either. So skier doesn't really sharpen edges that much making skis even older?
The skis possibly have been base edge filed too much into the p-tex - there's a flat line roughly 3/16 " in from the edge.
This could be just hard wax laid along the edge, but probablly skier uses old school methods of base filing.
Skier is probably convinced wc. techs do the same thing and it's better...
