      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

How many skis do you have?

Recommended Posts

The last thread where there was a discussion of whether you need separate skins for each set of skis got me wondering - just how many pairs of skis do you people have? I thought I was a gear whore with 3, but maybe not. I'm a XC skier working my way up to tele, so here are my 3:

 

1. long skinny XC skis, waxless base

2. shorter fatter bc touring skis, waxless base. These are super-cheap ex-REI rentals and are my "rock skis" for skiing on crap.

3. Teles (the only ones that require skins)

2. BD Mira - all round AT

3. Atomic 8.20 - tele edging ski - for firm on-piste days

I wish I had more.

------

I think everyone should own a huge pair of DH boards for haulin' -- even if they only get used about once a year.

 

PS: Isn't the ski speed record from muir to paradise like seven minutes or something? An RMI guide told me the story a long time ago but I forgot the details.

...fourteen pair! But I use about a half dozen-seven of them mostly, and the BC tele boards most of all

 

4 main sets of tele boards... inbounds, backcountry touring, powder fat boys and one set rock skis.

 

one set BC metal edge waxless. one set xc touring waxable, one set wood xc skis. No randonee setups yet but am considering it

 

and then i've got a bunch of project boards and old straight downhill boards and some old skis best left to kindling, but it adds up to over a dozen boards.

 

I still need that next pair though....
