Need vs. Want

Thread Starter 
What do you still need for this season, what do you still want?
post #2 of 50
Nothing. I am resigned to retirement "poverty" and have curbed my spending excesses.

Someday, Phil will have to face this and ...... it ain't pretty Phil ... brace yourself!

I "need" new boots. With them I'm sure that my skill level with definately increase.
I "want" new skis as well. But with boots, footbeds and fitting I think that will be out of the question this year. Perhaps late season though.

I just found the Cloudveil Factory outlet. Such deals on pants.

I need new boot liners, and I have Intuition Powerwraps on the way. That, a season pass, and cheaper gas.

As for wanting, there really is no end to it, is there. Sigh. Oh well for fun, I'll make a brief wish list:

188 Soft BROs with Dynafits for AT, with BD Ascension skins, and a pair of the stiffest Full Tilt tongues to adapt to my Scarpa Lasers.

A Gore-Tex hard shell would be nice too, my current shell isn't Gore-Tex, and is covered with scratches from tree branches, it still works fine, but the IS a wish list.

edit: I will undoubtedly pick up another pair of gloves, I do every year whether I need them or not.

I really want a replacement for the 185 V2 Chubb I broke last year! Perhaps this is closer to a need.

I want another pair of 190 Ti Chubbs and/or '02 Chubbs.

I can't afford any of this stuff, but that has never stopped me before.

NEED - boots, jacket

WANT - 25 DEGREES & STORMING
post #14 of 50
Need? The only thing I need right now is snow.

As for the want... A new pair of boots (current pair should last another season though) and a "recreational race" slalom ski for those icy days.

And if somebody wants to buy me a condo in Aspen (or Snowbird), I wouldn't turn it down.

Need: snow, more lessons for the kids, cold beer.

Want: new snow every day, new snowpants so I can stop wearing the duct-taped ones. New boots that are fitted properly.
post #19 of 50
NEED: Snow (lots of it), and a pair of Raptor 130s, which I'll get just as soon as I can get some time with my bootfitter of choice.

Want: New GS skis, my old ('03?) Head i.Race GS are getting rather long in the tooth, and really don't come close to the stability and performance of the new GS RDs. Not sure whether I'll be able to swing these this year or not, but it's the top of the want list as I anticipate skiing a lot more GS this season.
Secondary (and almost definitely not happening) want would be some Mojo 94s. Haven't tried them, but love what I hear. Unfortunately given the amount of time I spent in places they'd be truly useful (i.e. not at all), I can't really justify a pair.
post #20 of 50

There were a pair of new (er, unused) N 17s on ebay, yesterday I think. The bid was only $11 at that point. FWIW
