Last years. They've got around 10 days on them. Got some bindings on there I want so you will have to mount a new pair.

$210+ship

Will you stop misleading people about your skis.
I tuned these skis before you skied them last season. I also hotboxed them twice.
The factory base finish was not up to par as anyone with Bluehouse skis knows. They arrived with an unreasonable base angle. We had a race finish grind done to them and the base and side angle set to 1 deg and 2 deg. They were drilled for Look/Rossi bindings set for a 325mm boot sole length. I tune race skis so these took some time. You skied them for a couple of runs at Stowe and 1/2 day at Snow bird and had them retuned and rewaxed for another 1/2 day of skiing. There aren't more than 2 days on these skis, as mentioned they have been hotboxed, tuned a couple of times and they are probably the best tuned Districts arounds.
There are not ten days on these skis!
If you are looking for Districts, you will not find a better pair.

But I'm sure you'll find a cheaper pair that have been used. $40 off the price when they've been skied and drilled for bindings already? You can do better than that.

well there are probably single digit days on them you're right, I was beng conservative

To be fair Harry, they did retail for a lot more than the initial promotion price btw, more like $400 or more. You might find lower price but as qk9 suggested we tuned these properly (no small feat and they are lightly used at this point!

I got a pair of last year's Districts and can attest to the amount of work they require to get in shape. (Sadly, many fat skis, especially from smaller manufacturers, have serious base tuning issues.) Once you get the bases and edges in shape they are a very fun ski. I wouldn't recommend them as an east coast powder ski, or a front range west coast ski, but they are fantastic in Rocky Mountain powder & interior Cascades powder. You'll be hard pressed to find a ski this fun and wide for $210.

Have to disagree about not being a "west coast" ski. I have a pair that have seen their share of cement; skied fine w/ little deflection. Very similar to my 183 Goats.

I'm going to price em with the Look PX12s on there to avoid the re-drilling issue. Let's say $285 for a nice round number.
