    WTB - 175-cm (+/-)Skis (90-105-mm waist) - Its for the children

    Looking for a pair of 170-180-ish skis with a 90-105-mm waist that I could use as an all-around PNW loaner ski for my sons buddies who he wants to take skiing, but the kids have garbage gear. This can either be viewed as altruistic or acting as the the first one is free drug pusher. Not looking to spend a lot. Since most of these kids are 15-yo and weigh less than 150-lbs, a burly charger isnt what Im after. Something like an all-mtn twin (think Volkl Bridge) or less burly ski like a K2 Pinnacle 95 or 105 would work. I dont need bindings, as I plan to mount demos.

    So, what do you have to make a dream come true for some gear-disadvantaged teen who is about to take the plunge in ski addiction?

    Feel free to make low-ball offers on my kinda beat-up pairs of:
    - 1.) K2 Apache Chief 174cm 118-98-108
    - 2.) Salomon TenEighty Gun (PocketRocket) 175cm 122-90-115
    - 3.) Volkl Explosiv 3 180cm 120-94-112

    Shipping from Calif to PNW ain't so expensive.

    2 of those pairs are in a photo in my old post at https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...88#post5782488

    I've got some flat Blizzard Kabookies I was planning on selling. 180cm, 98 waist. I haven't priced them out yet but if you're interested let me know.

    I'm a grown man, weigh 135 lbs, and love my Helios 95 for deep days and corn skiing. Am I supposed to be offended?

    The last time I weighed 135-lbs I was 14-yo. Are you fat shaming us girthy skiers?
