I had a nightmare about core shots...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

So after getting a core shot in my new skis at Breck last month, I've obviously developed some kind of complex about my precious skis getting torn up.

 

Last night, I had a nightmare about getting another core shot.  Then it went from bad to worse.  There was literally a hole in the base that went all the way through the top sheet. 

 

Then, the next day (in my nightmare), someone stole the bindings off the skis (why they would take the bindings and not the skis is beyond me, I guess because they had so many core shots!)...

 

Just thought I'd share.

Wow. Sounds like you need to loosen up a bit.  Core shots are a fact of life if you're going to be skiing any kind of decent terrain. Kinda like a chipped windshield after a winter of driving.

i used to get all hung up on core shots.  like sesh said, they're a fact of life.  i'd rather ski really great, hard terrain and get core shots then tip toe my way around the mountain.  that's why they make p-tek.

Core shots are part of life, i actually just got one.  it's 1 1/2" long x 1/2" wide.  Easy fix, time consuming though if you want to do a good invisible job.  Ski hard all the time.....

 

When i'm done my bases will be like new.

Core shots mean you're skiing some good stuff.  Don't have nightmares about the damage, enjoy the slopes

Good stuff.  The place at Vail must have done a "quick" job, because I had another core shot fixed the other day in Jackson Hole, and now you can barely even tell either of them are there.  Feeling good about my skis, and they still ski like new!
