skiers' rooms

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
what room (view, place) in your house says: skier! living room photos would be cool, shop-work benches, gym, posters, ski racks, mountain views, houses in the woods, decks with kickers, roofs with ski tracks. got to post images unless your descriptive skills are vivid.

Dayum, RossiSmash!!!!

Mine doesn't come close.

In my house, my wife and I each have a room for our hobbies and stuff. Mine is spilt down the middle. I have that steel-wire NSF shelving on both sides. One side is my homebrewery with all that crap (mash/lauter tun, hot liquor tank, brewpot, wort chiller, e-flasks, stirplates, 50-100 lbs. or malt/grain, primary & secondary fermenters) and also with two chest freezers, one for lagering, the other for the kegs. (The lagering freezer is really on the skiing side.)

The other side has the same shelves. One shelf is the "boot cemetary," with all kinds of parasited dead boots (parasited mostly by my pinhead hippie friends). Two full shelves of wax/klister (mostly XC stuff), then a shelf of the toolboxes, etc. The last shelf has skins, beacons, shovels, probes, etc. On the wall is my active quiver (down to three alpine, one AT, six XC). My wife calls that room "the reason we don't have a Mercedes."

The nostalgia quiver is in the garage.

In the winter I put up a yurt I made in the backyard for my tuning/waxing. I am pretty proud of it. It takes the snow and everything. There's a hole at the apex and I have a pretty ghetto fireplace in there (I got a hold of three scrap copper sheets and made a "bowl"). Some lawn chairs in there, my tuning bench, and usually a keg or two (no need for a fridge in the winter). Mostly, my buds just come over and we drink beer in there and pre-game for Saturdays.

Music Rehearsal Studio out back shares space with NCAA football and BBL jerseys, Euro Football/Soccer, NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA jerseys on the wall, surfboards, skateboards, and skis hanging on the walls and from the rafters. I also have my old competition bibs hanging back there.

Here's a reject quiver photo.. has the bibs on the right, skateboards scattered about, and some music stuff behind the skis.. The skis are usually hanging on a different wall (the wall of 30+ jerseys)on hooks of 2 pair each and from hooks in the rafters.



I used to have a wall of trail maps at my old house I regret not being more careful with them when I moved. I may someday go online and acquire some images to print a frame what is still available from places I've been but having the actual classic vintage tattered genuine articles that may even have some water spots from using it on a big snow day is pretty cool.

Oh, and I also have hats from several places, get one every time I ski new place now. Those are also hanging back there with the jerseys.

That's a very clean garage! I just had a new roof put on the house and I had to order another 30 cu. ft. dumpster after the first one was filled. Anyway the second dumpster was less than half filled, which gave me no excuse but to start throwing away 20 years of accumulated stuff from the basement and the garage. I thought I was looking pretty decent until your pics.

Rossi Smash, when I look at your wall it's instant flashback from years gone by. I pretty much can place all those skis , somedody I knew or skied with had them or I had them etc , etc.

I would say for me, it's my basement. (I will get pics sometime). But really since I run a ski shop, most of my stuff just stays there. My garage is for the car hobby. Currently I am down to one street/strip car, but there can be up to 3 cars/projects going on in there at any givin time. After all, I need something to do in the summer

Philpug,

What cabinets are those?
post #14 of 27
Impresssive garage Phil. There are some stains on the floor so I guess you must do some work in it. Someday I hope to get my garage to look 1/2 that good.

Nice. That is a smaller scale of what the attic of our patrol headquarters is.

Wish I had all of my old gear to do something like that.

Very niiiiice.

Thanks. No serious work, just stains. I was thinking about tiles or painting the floor but got lazy.

In the garage, next to framed Olympic posters from Innsbruck, St. Moritz, and Cortina, I've got a full wall rack of skis/poles/ski and boot bags. FWIW, in my office I have a framed poster from the 2002 Women's World Cup in Cortina.

here's what the Innsbruck poster looks like: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...icial%26sa%3DG

Cortina poster: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...icial%26sa%3DG

That's why the TP skier is in the backseat! He's sayin' "OH $H!T!"

I made the rack with leftover pieces from my car project. Now, to make one that will hold 8 pair in a limited space.

now that's freakin' amazing to see those old bindings, brings me way back . I can almost transport to snapping marker toe pieces back together after a release, or hearing the loud spring snap of the cubco's. thanks for the trip down memory lane oh, and just on the edge of your skis photo, those Fisher Alu's: sweet! You know, I can remember Alaska, 1956, (I was eight and the ski patrol mascot at Arctic Valley Ski Bowl) and a binding we called the suicide binding, god how I wanted a pair: talk about intimate interface with the ski, heh, heh. toepiece: a pin that fitted a hole in a toe plate on the boot. heal: D-rings bolted to the side of the ski and 8' of leather strap. this was the answer to springs and cables prevalent at the time!

My bedroom has my skiing-related stuff. A few posters, and my babies sitting at the end of the bed waiting for the binding heels to get back from being bent so I can get 'em all mounted up.

I actually cleaned up last night, before that I had my new helmet and goggles laying next to the skis and my boots were out too.



Close-up of posters:


And under the bed, boots, backpack, and bin full of gloves/socks/shirts/misc skiing items:
