I hope it is ok that I start this thread, as I am a noob on this forum and all, but I was enjoying reading your 2010 quiver thread, and thought, hmmm, when are we in the 'new' season? It is hard to tell if you have been summer skiing, but how about now? I usually participate in this thread on telemarktips.com, so I figured I would jump in.
As always, this gear groveling should always be festooned with discussions of how much you use each ski, what conditions it is for, and of course, photos. I suppose we should avoid speculation about how many sweet skis we might buy, unless we have actually ordered that ski and it just isn't here yet. I don't have any photos yet, but right now, my 2010-2011 quiv looks like:
210 Holmenkollen Woodies with 3-pins- CC touring
205 Kazama Couloirs with 3-pins CC- touring with emphasis on some downhill turning/bushwhacking
185 Voile Mtn Surf with Voile 3-pin Hardwires Nostalgia- although I was like 7 when these skis came out. I also use these as my sand skis.
185 Scottybob Headrushes with Hammerhead plates - Resort/summer touring tele boards
188 Moment Tahoes with Hammerhead plates - Rock skis
185 DPS Wailer 95s with Dynafit STs- Fixed heel resort and BC boards
186 ON3P Viciks with 22 Designs Axls (en route)- All rounder tele boards
186 ON3P Billy Goats with Voile Switchbacks- BC powder boards
The Hammerhead plates allow me to shift a single pair of tele bindings between skis. And for the wife...
165 Alpina Cross Terrain with 3-pin cables General CC/touring setup
155(?) Rossi Scratch with Axium bindings Resort boards
162 Voile Drifter with Fritschi Explores BC powder boards
My portion of the quiver has been reduced by about 40 percent since beginning of the 09-10 season. I really should reduce it more, but...you know how it is. As for me, I expect to use the ON3P Viciks for about 50 percent of the time next season. The others, only time will tell.
