    Yeah, they were a popular ski around these parts back in the day and iirc most of em either exploded or got bent.

    Musta got lucky with my pair 'cause they're still holding camber and still make smashin' bumps feel pretty damn good.

    I'll play --

    Second generation 1080s ( the Blue ones ) from 1997 --

    what are they(?) 78mm (underfoot ? )

    my favorite memory of those skis was seeing the tips above Shane's head as he was flying machLooney down Sacajawea
    ( he'd been skiing 205s all season, and the 180(cms) were Just a little light )

    their successor decendants - the Orange 85mm waisted 1080s - are still the most Fun I have had on a ski : I could go anywhere - Backwards. ( remember, "Switch to the road ! " )


    discovered this Summer : a pair of 200cm Elan RC05s ; Tyrolia 360s. If the boot sole length fits. I have 'em 1979circa ;


    we use to see a guy in February on a pair of 1960s era Nevadas on their original skis , and

    John was skiing a pair of Atomic SLs from the '80s he had mounted with M4-15s ( name it ! ) Rotomats ( Franzi ! ) until I put him on a pair of Fisher RX8s :

    when he came in, he was SO Excited : " I don't think I have ever had so much fun ! " John was eighty-four.


    Good Times. thanks... tj

    I've got a pair of these that still see action. Not a bad fun ski that holds arcs reasonably well.

    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    There was a local guy daily-driving TNCs here for a few years recently.
    Eccentric old guy, no wife/family, always talked about moving back to Maine...eventually he asked me if I wanted his bike for parts, left the junker in front of my garage and I haven’t seen him since.

    I was a little envious of his ability to just flounder around on ancient junk gear and be really stoked about it. He was that happy gaper who makes you feel jaded.

    Hope he made it to Maine and wasn’t just getting ready to go kill himself in the woods or something.

    I get a few days each year on my LPs.

    Still ski a beat to hell and back pair of OG Wrens every early and late season. Those skis will be around until they canít be around.

    Still run my old XXL's a few days a season. Not sure what year they are, maybe '08's. Got some LP105's now though (thanks SoooL!), so the XXL's might be retired.

    I keep skis for a long time because selling them is so worthless and a lot of mine aren't rockered. I'd say my 08 Enforcers still get some use.
    I could really use a mid-80s ski for when it hasn't snowed in a while and my old Pipe Cleaners are kinda lame and the old bindings on them are super heavy. Maybe I'll swing by the used shop. Must be something. My dad left his Mythic Riders here and they're mint, but they're too short. 174?
    I guess I just don't buy/trade ski gear as much as I want. Fundage. We'll see what's left after taxes this season. My quiver could use a revamp. Or just something mid-80's to 90mm in 18X with frame touring bindings and skins. Probably wouldn't be worth the shipping though. Maybe a Missoula mag is holding on to something? Can be old, if not blown out.
    No longer stuck.

    This thread has potential and I’ll bump it in winter for sure.

    Teton Village is filled with ROGs that rock 30 y/o skis many, many days per year.

    For me it was Dynastar's original race room Legend Pro 194 with the 90mm waist...then after they were retired the 186 Legend Pro with the tip protector. Wish they still made the same exact skis.

    My oldest pair still in use are arguably young by this board's standards, but it'd be the Line 2009 anthems with the Octoland graphics. Such a great ski to have around in less-than-stellar conditions. Heavy, buttery, and able to lay down spring corn carves like none other.

    I have a pair of 1988ish Head skis that I used off and on until about 3 years ago when I finally got new skis. As far as mileage goes, though, Iím sure many of you have me beat. They only have maybe 5 seasons of every other weekend use.

    1985s I think K2 812s. They are still a ton of fun. I probably take them out 3-5 times a year. I got them at a garage sale for $35 around ‘95 some time. They stopped being my main pair when I finally bought some XScreams around 2002 I think.

    I skied a pair of those and 710 FOs in to the ground from 82 through the 1990s. FOs died a lot faster than the 812s did. wood core>foam core for longevity. They're retired now.


    These are still skiable. I try to take one retro pair out each spring.

    Thrift shops are your friend - especially in mt.

    I thought you wanted something From the '80s and was wracking my brain. . .
    'til I read frame binding and realized, 'no'

    Go get 'em, Stuck. Be Safe, please...

    I have a bunch of old skis that donít get any use. Donít know why I keep them around. Just canít seem to throw them out.

    The oldest that actually get use are probably my 06 Sanouks and a pair of super Broís. Actually have a new undrilled pair of super Broís ready on standby in case something ever happens to the other pair. Which is not likely ever going happen.

    My wifee still skis her pocket rockets. Her vintage is the 1080 gun variation(final year). Loved hearing those Swiss kids yell off the lift to her "Zee chick has Zee GUNZ." Zermatt/Saas Fee honeymoon memories from 2009........

    I still ride an old pair of K2 PE's a few days each season.
