Takeoff on the "How many skis did you ride" thread.
One - XWing Tornado - 178cm. At $275 I couldn't resist.
My quiver got smaller and fatter this year.
I purchased my Dynastar Contact 4x4's a year ago but sold about 5 pair in October.
I then purchased a pair of 169cm Atomic Crimson Nomads for my adult daughter in October and a pair of 186cm Praxis Protests for me in December.
1 pr: Blizzard Titan Eos 166. After a 2 hr demo and two days in CA spring conditions, I'm looking forward to next year more than usual, and I'm uncommonly curious about the rest of the Blizzard lineup.
All you need is a 130mm ski and you will have it covered .
I bought three pair this year all used, all at ridiculous prices.
165 Blizzard Mag SLs w/PX 12s from a Bear
195 Atomic 9.28s w/Salomon S900s in great condition for $30 at a swap
180 Blizzard Titan Cronus w/demo bindings for $180 or so on ebay
The Blizzards got a lot of snow time and will again next season. The Atomics got half a day and might get the same next year. Fun groomer zoomer when my back is hurting.
Two pairs, only one of which will remain in the quiver. I bought a pair 191 Scott P4 last summer, skied about 5 days, which I am now dumping in favor of 190 Moment Ruby.
And a new pair of boots: Dalbello Proton 10s, with new footbeds by SierraJim, and newly molded but existing Intuition Alpine Power Wrap liners and Booster Straps.
That is a nice line up.
I was gifted a couple nice pair of vintage skis.(acquired)
I purchased a few pair of skis for friends
I purchased a few pair of skis but did not keep them
I purchased a few pair this season that became a full time part of my quiver.(Hart Beat, Elan 888)
I purchased one pair of skis at the end of last season but did not mount them or ski them until this season (Hart F17)
I purchased one pair at the end of the season that remains unmounted and will be an 09-10 quiver member. (Kiku)
Seeeeeee. Its not that simple.
I bought myself a pair of Fischer Red Heats and my daughter a pair of Fischer RC4 Competitions...mine online, my daughter's from the Fischer warehouse in NH. I love mine, she loved hers.
(both were from the previous season, btw)
I bought 7 pairs of skis last fall, but two pair were straight pencils from a swap, and I just bought them to get the bindings off of them.
The others (I skied them all):
190 '96 Chubb
188 '01 Chubb
185 '04 V2 Genesis Chubb (two pair)
184 '04 Atomic R:EX
07/08 Volkl Katana 183 last summer
But also Rossi B-Squad Composit and Dynafit Zzeus boots along with dynafit vertical st bindings
Ouch--definitely going to regret some of this stuff if I can't pull it together to go to Argentina this summer.
Well if a year is the last 12 months, I bought a lot of gear.
Used 191 Movement Goliaths. To much ski, sold on Ebay.
New 195 Praxis Powders. Love them for a deep day.
New 184 Mythic Riders.
New 178 Nordica Nitrous.
Looking to buy New 190 Praxis BC's.
Let's not discuss the new boots, and tons of gear.
I make my wife's shopping habits look miserly, I am so out of control.
