    The Quiver Pic Rerun Thread



    The wife and I are moving from Colorado to Switzerland this summer, so I had to pare down the quiver to:

    190 Down Showdown 115M with Salomon Shift
    190 DPS Lotus 120 Pure with Fritschi Vipec
    184 Faction Prime 2.0 with ATK SLR (BSL adjustable)
    180 Down Countdown 102L with ATK Trofeo 10
    165 Blizzard Sheeva 10 with Tyrolia Demo AT and ATK Trofeo toes + custom risers for the uphill (Tyrolia toes and heels slide off without tools, pretty cool)

    I might leave the Countdown 102Ls behind - still debating.

    I still need to make custom high risers for the skis with ATK bindings since rando race risers arenít high enough for me. Iím going to custom make the metal bars out of a titanium rod instead of using heavier off-the-shelf ones from Black Diamond like I did for the Sheevas.

    Tecnica Cochise Pro 130 with Powerwraps
    Atomic Hawx XTD 130 with Powerwraps and Salomon powerstraps
    Atomic Backland with ProTours and Dynafit powerstraps
    Tecnica ZeroG Womens

    I might leave the Cochises behind - still debating.

    Weíll be moving back to Colorado after a few years, so weíre leaving behind:
    202 DPS Lotus 138s
    190 Volkl Katana (wish I could bring)
    186 PM Gear Kusalas Extra Stiff (Hybrid and Carbon)
    183 PM Gear Bro Carbon (reverse camber)
    183 Head Monster 102
    180 Down Countdown 102

    Love the Tyrolia setup!

    As someone living in Switzerland, I'd urge you to bring the katana's. Such a versatile ski. And if you're moving shit anyway, why not throw another one in. Or a dedicated groomer zoomer. You can usually ski artificial snow higher up the mountain from oktober onwards. Those early season days I love a dedicated carver to get my technique dialed again for the season. Although on second thought you could also pick up a slalom ski cheap over here.

    Living in ZŁrich you will be traveling to resorts (on weekends i assume), so bringing one versatile ski (with something like a shift or tecton) is practical. The public transport here is exceptional so having a versatile daily driver is beneficial so you can travel by train.
    Anyway, I live in Davos, (although I dont know if I will still be here next winter,) but hit me up if you need any info!

    Thanks!

    Iím hoping the Showdown 115s will be just as versatile (they seem to be so far). I can only really bring one pair of heavy skis since weíre fitting everything in our airline-checked bags (got rid of just about everything lol).

    I wonít be skiing as much as I did here in Colorado since the purpose of the move is to mostly travel a ton. So itíll mostly be midweek day trips here and there when thereís good snow. I donít imagine Iíll be going skiing much when its variable. Nor do I imagine Iíll be skiing much on weekends (travelling often to destinations all over Europe instead) - maybe one or two weekend days a month. If that changes, like you said, I can always pick up one of a zillion skinnier skis when Iím there. Its the fatter skis that are harder to find out there!

    Over due end of season quiver before the break up and sell off down to four pairs.

    178 ZeroG 95 - not broke, don’t fix. I’ll replace these with another pair when they have been skied into the ground, but with different bindings
    188 ZeroG 105 (could have gotten away with 180 here). Really like this set up for how great it skis given how insanely light it is. Alpinists help out.
    184 WildCat tour - Stoked on this ski. When I replace it I’ll go Tectons or Kingpins instead of shifts, it’s begging for a better touring binding.
    186 Mindbender 108 - great modern directional do it all ski. K2 is making good skis again. I could ski this every day.
    186 Kartel 108 - still one of the more fun wide skis out there. Needs pivots
    188 Rustler 11 - new pair will likely get Shifts as a travel ski.
    189 Billy Goat - it’s a Billy Goat. Not for sale.

    so which four?

    And couldn't you just do some remounting within the quiver? There shouldn't be any remounts that are no can do no? Sell the sollys, get some tectons - voila surely?

    and yes - killer quiver

    Cleaning out the gear closet so I snapped a pic. This thread needs some action anyway. L to R:

    190 Legend Pro: rock/low tide/going someplace and have no idea what to expect ski.
    194 MX 98: Daily driver. Does anything up to 6Ē new; slays crud and slush, carves like a mother, great in bumps as long as you keep your speed in check. Took a long time to find these at a price I could afford, love this ski.
    188 Scot Schmidt Pro: DD#2. Primarily hardpack ski, stupid smooth.
    192 Cochise: 4-10Ē and post-storm ski. I really think highly of these, even though itís sort of a one dimensional ski. Fortunately, Iím sort of a one-dimensional skier.
    189 100Eight: wanted something a bit looser than the rest of my quiver for trees and tight areas, but I canít love the full rocker. For sale with skins if anyoneís interested.
    192 Movement Super Turbo: I really wish I had more opportunity to ski these. Very well-balanced, powerful without being overbearing. They just kick a whole lotta ass.
    188 SS Pro: backups. One more season on the current pair.
    180 Stormrider VXL: dumpster find. Ground the piss out of them to put an edge back on them and now theyíre perfect for skiing with the kid.
    190 Kneissl Tanker: backups. Will replace the LPs.
    192 Stormrider 95: backups. Will replace the MX98, though I hope it never has to happen.
    196 Hart Wizards: won them in a contest, canít justify having two 115mm skis for where I ski. Pretty damn fun though, light and easy to ski, big sweet spot.
    192 Elan 777: loaners.
    Couple Salomon SG skis.
    The rest of the race skis are all in the house, basically retired now. Still have a 175 Volkl 6-Star that still sees some use; perfect WROD ski for the crowds.

    Thinking we may have similar taste in skis as I have Zero G 108's and 85's plus I just bought some Rustler 11's after thoroughly enjoying a demo.

    Have you also skied the Zero G 108's? If so, how would you compare to 105's? I'm on the lookout for some backup 108's if I see some cheap. Wondering if 105's would be a good replacement/improvement down the line or if I should hoard the original since they're just about the best do-it-all touring ski I've used.

    If you want to put those MX 98s in a good home, I live behind smiths.

    That does look nice.

    105 is significantly lighter, floats better, and has a smoother turn initiation and finish in tight terrain, especially with lighter wimpier boots. It gives up some of the power of the 108 through the tip. It’s distinctly more of a soft snow touring ski where I thought the 108 could be a touring focused do it all ski for more variable conditions. I much prefer braking trail with the 105, but would rather have the 108 when conditions get cruddy.

    Oh, theyíre just fine right here. I nearly bought your OG pair but canít justify any more skis right now. I literally never thought I would say that, but there it is.

    I would of traded you straight up. They are unicorns that probably will never appear on the rack at a ski store again. Sad for the few of us who can enjoy them. Maybe some day someone will make something similar, or Kaestle will pull their heads out of where ever it is and press another batch. Only we can hope and pray. Iíd grab two pairs if they did that.
