    Mobile Ski Library: Telluride MAR 6-10, SummitCo MAR 11-13

    UPDATE: Crested Butte dates are CANCELLED. A key lift has been broken since Wed, and it seems they haven't been opening ~3 of their 5 rad t-bar accessed zones. Might visit late March.

    NEW DATES: SummitCo March 11-13

    -------

    Simple concept: You borrow my skis for free. Then you give them back to me. No obligation to ski with me.

    WHO CAN BORROW FREE SKIS FROM ME AT TELLURIDE/CRESTED BUTTE/SUMMITco?

    TGR Maggots:
    My "assurance" against theft, grossly negligent or intentional damage, lawsuits, etc... is you will give me your real name and a post or message stating “I will return these skis, and I accept all risks.” That way, later if we cannot resolve a dispute, then I could "threaten" to publicly shame you on TGR with evidence. ( But c'mon, I really doubt anyone would sacrifice their multi-year TGR reputation just to steal used skis worth only a measly $100-$300. )

    HOW TO BORROW FREE SKIS:

    1. In advance, choose a day(s) to borrow:
    - March 6-10 at Telluride
    - March 11-12 at Crested Butte
    - March 13 at A-Basin/Breckenridge/or nearby ski area

    2. Browse the list of skis available in the Ski Library, and choose a ski(s) to reserve for borrowing.
    NOTE: Make sure that the ski’s listed BSL range and DIN range will work for your boot and preferred release value.
    NOTE: If you’re not an expert on DIN release values, then ask me.
    NOTE: NO OFFICIAL PROPER BOOT COMPATIBILITY for AT/PinTech/WTR boots. If your boot ain’t the good old downhill alpine boot standard (ISO 5355), then ask me.

    3. Post your reservation request publicly in this thread.
    Include in your post:
    A) date(s)
    B) ski model(s)
    C) where you prefer to pickup (e.g. at a specific gondola, etc.)
    D) say whether you are qualified to adjust the bindings without me present
    E) your Boot Sole Length
    F) your preferred DIN release value
    G) any special requests
    (SPECIAL PERMISSION is required BEFORE you hit rails/boxes, competitions, events like pond skims, for work (patrol, instructor, etc.), rock slides/dryland skiing (duh), etc.)

    4. From there, you and I will communicate privately via PM’s or txt’s. We will finalize details like:
    - time & place to meet,
    - how I will get the skis back from you,
    - your preferred “assurance” method…(If you refuse to tell me your real name and state “I will return these skis, and I accept all risks”, then propose something else.)
    - if you’re 350-lb Shaquille O’Neal, then I gotta re-think your safety on the gear.
    - I will warn you if the edges are dull, or if your mount position will end up way forward and jibby on that ski, or whatever.
    - etc.

    5. To CANCEL your reservation, no worries---just let me know, ideally at least 1 day in advance.

    Yep, Lotus138 reserved Fri March 8 for Cosmic Suncloud.
    That's the very first ski model by DPS in 2006, when TGR basically kickstarted the DPS company via pre-orders (before kickstarter.com was even a thing).

    I think I will miss that. Now that I postponed my Kicking Horse dates (poor conditions), in favor of Telluride right now, I think I will be hitting KickingHorse around those March 20-24 dates.

    Yes, I will be at BBIUT Thurs/Fri/Sat for sure, and maybe Sunday too.
    By that time, the list of skis in the car will be different---no chargers, mostly just surfers and fun-shapes. (I will be dropping off all chargers at SummitCounty for May/June skiing at A-Basin & Breck.)

    Big thanks to Cosmic Suncloud & rip in Telluride,
    who were generous hosts and ambassadors of Telluride, and let me chase them into local stashes, and took the time to keep me company on 5 out of 6 ski days! As Library borrowers, they went straight for the big guns: 2857g 195cm Mothership & 2732g 198cm RC112...so I stepped up my game on my minty 3065g 195cm Kuros, but the Rockies took a big bite.

    Kuro is currently NOT available for borrowing.

    Yes, my 197 Katana has a long edge that ya gotta manage. But it is the 2009, which has full-length subtle reverse camber, which makes it not as chargey/demanding on edge or on bases as one would expect from a long-ass metal ski.
