What skis would accompany you into Eternity?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Many traditions send off their vanquished warriers with weapons, articles of comfort and even servants. The Viking burial ceremony incudes a spectacular floating funeral pyre. I am not suggesting this firey farwell for us skiers, though it does conjure some extraordinary mental imagery. Rather, what gear would you choose to be by your side in the hearafter - assuming you are going to the place where it is not too hot to snow....
Perhaps it depends on one's perception of ski Heaven - all pow in those fluffy clouds? Or even a spectacular carpet of corduroy instantly groomed to virgin purity by the Hosts. New knees may be awaiting in the hereafter. So perfectly formed and spaced bumps may be your pleasure. Those with a perverse penchant for blue ice boilerplate should look south.
For me, it would be the Blizzard Titan Cronus. It is a fine, well-mannered companion on virtually any surface. I have other skis in my quiver that are better in their own special way, but none so agreeeable and willing as the Titan's. It is a ski for all conditions and All of Time.
Oh, yes, and what boot fitter would you choose to have buried wtih you....

I would have to check with VA on which all metal Vollant ski would take the heat .  My local minister has warned me that I'm going straight to hell if I don't mend my ways!

If i get a little lucky and make it up then I'll glady keep my Fischer 84's.

I'd take my Gotama's with me. Because where I'm going it has frozen over and it's going to snow like hell.

I have no idea, but I am certain that in hell, the only ski available is a Metron.

I think I've decided that instead of bringing skis with me, I'd bring Phil... because no matter what, even if heaven told him he could only bring one pair of skis, he would still show up with a Subaru full of skis. He's bound to have something in there that I could ski on... plus then I'd have a ski buddy and a DD.

I've had a bunch of skis over the years, but I think the ski that stands out and was the most outstanding for me was the Volkl G-30. I just remember that ski being superb. I gave it to a guy at the local hill in an effort to get him to try a "shaped ski". He never wanted to part with his P-9's P-19's or what the straight Volkl ski was that he had about 5 pair of.

My after-live skis will be invisible, kind of like Wonder Woman's jet.  They will be whatever size, width, flex as needed for conditions.  But, while skiing all I will see is the snow wake and tracks behind me.

Let's talk boots. 

Zero weight and feel just as good riding the lift and walking around as they do while skiing!

Just remember, cut in the lift line at "Heavenly Valley" and you'll be making turns with rajin' cajin'.

Mantra( first generation). First wide ski (for me) that can do it all. Opened up a lot of terrain for me.

I would bring my rock skis, I hear hell has alot of thin cover.   

I feel like getting my boots on will be easier in the relentless heat, though I bet Brimstone Canyons Ski Area is chock full of Jersey gapers.
