What is deemed to be a legal addition for length modifications? I've searched every value village thrift store play it again sports from Everett to Seattle without finding any 210s. Do all "improvements" to ski have to be permanent. Or can I just add some participant award trophy's to the tails and call it good?

FWIW, those of us who collect 210+'s look for them year 'round. Skis that length have gotten harder and harder to come by. My finds are the result of regular repeat visits to a number of thrift establishments, but I only come by a couple of pairs a year and it's pure blind luck to be in the right place at the right time.

pure but not blind that luck is

Missed a few years...parenthood...blown ACL...ennui...
Think it's high time to dust off the trusty 210 Elan RCs, trial-click the N-77s, and...
Pretty sure the bandana is still in the boot-bag.
Where it belongs.

For those looking for proper equipment, if you don't find them this season, don't stop looking. It took me almost three years to find mine in the Bay Area. Just keep plugging away on CL. And ask the old shops if you can look in their sheds. Because once you get on a proper ski, all the others look a little, well, short.
And I thought there was one other rule to LBD: Ski the mountain like you would any other day. Or at least try.
Have fun folks.

I'm sorry to not see a Kirkwood LBD chapter this year.
Another place I found 210's...
If you are riding the chair with older, tall skiers that are on new gear, ask about what they used to ski BITD. A lot of them still have their old boards up in the rafters. The P20 RS in the picture above came from a conversation like that.

PSA for ladies or those willing to modify length, the price is right (free)!

should i torment my lil ski machine for a couple laps, let him put those planks on edge and hang on?
