    How much of your quiver have you skied in 20/21?

    This may be a little premature but I held off on starting this thread until spring conditions arrived locally. I'm assuming most of us are going to continue skiing for a least a couple more months and some of us never stop, so feel free to update your answer as the season progresses.

    Please post as much or little info as you care to or have time to, but what I'm really interested in is 1) Which ski did you spend the most time on this season, and 2) Which skis did you actually use vs. which stayed in the closet this season.

    Purpose of the thread is to reflect on the season, appreciate our gear, learn from our own and other's gear choices, and maybe encourage someone to scrape the storage wax off another pair before calling it quits.

    I'll start, used skis in order of most to least days on them.

    Location: Central WA

    Also 60-70ish days, 70/30 inbounds on

    Mfree108
    Lotus120
    .....

    At least 75% of days have been in pow so there's little need to ski anything else.

    goes to 11.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    Days skied 25 ish. All east Coast. Not a big snow year, but the longest consistent stretch of days without a thaw/refreeze cycle, or freezing rain in as far back as I can remember.

    Praxis Piste Jib (184) Everyday groomer park
    Praxis Concept (177) Early season tree/rock ski exploring denser woods
    Praxis Quixote (182) Snow days and day afters

    Not Used
    Praxis GPO (187) one morning

    Around 50 days. Fairly low pow year. Skis I didn't ski and decided to sell because I haven't in more than a year-Pillow Fights and some Iggy mid 90s waisted skis. Also replaced my BC setup.

    Supergoats-new this year. 5ish days that had the snow to make it worth it.
    Old Gotamas-rock skis. 8ish days waiting for rocks to hide.
    New BGTs-awesome. 9 days skinning.
    Exp 100s and K108s split the rest of the days. A little hard, 100s. A little softer, K108s.
    W116-just got these to replace PFs as they make more sense here. Took them out one day on the way wrong day. Super icy but wanted to try them. Not great on ice. Will like when soft.

    Not skied yet-tele's-probably some slush days soon, BC fishscales (just getting into the season), RC4s-beer league canceled this year, re-finished FFFs. Skied them last year and then refinished them. Super pretty. Just haven't taken them out yet.

    Skied maybe 45 or 50 days so far. I live near Aspen we had a very dry January and then things picked up after that but not a ton of big deep days. Used all the skis I have

    188 PB&J - got these part way through the season but used them the most
    186 ON3P Vicik ~5-7 days
    190 Bibbys ~7-10 days (whenever it's more than 6" of new snow)
    183 K2 Poacher ~5 days early season collecting core shots
    188 Wailer 105 ~5 days until I broke them and replaced them with Hojis
    187 Hojis ~5 days

    Trying to operate under a new rule where I get rid of skis I don't use at least a couple of times each season unless it's a super cool collector's item or something like that. I've had too may skis in the past that I never used

    Only skiing in Maine this year...No travel. And skiing shorter/easier due to abdominal surgery recovery. Making the best of it.

    Used most to least:
    177 Head Monster 88 - great Eastern go to ski. Awesome.
    178 Volkl VWerks Mantra 99 - light and playful but can rail.
    181 Line Sakana 105 - just plain fun. Biggest surprise.
    184 Volkl Mantra 102 - Solid everywhere
    182 Fischer Ranger 107ti - More powerful M102
    180 Rossignol Experience 94ti - good easy all mountain ski
    192 Black Diamond Zealot - great all rounder/ travel ski
    192 Movement SuperTurbo - couple pow days, seem fun
    191 Movement Goliath - great classic
    184 Movement baby Goliath - old friend
    184 Head Monster 108 - heavy beast for dense snow, slush.
    186 Liberty V92 - easy carver
    179 Liberty V76 - easy SL like ski (probably sell because the Monster88 kills it)
    190 Dynastar Legend Pro - Spring slush slayer.
    194 Kastle MX98 - Wide SG ski
    188 Rossignol Experience 98 - Wide GS ski
    210 Kastle Women's DH - manageable DH ski
    208 Kastle SuperG - backup/ loaner longboard
    175 Scott Superguide 105 - light touring ski

    Not skied this year:
    184 VWerks Katana - pow touring ski (new addition)
    170 Dynastar WC SL - needs lots of energy
    170 Rossignol S86 - rock/ tree ski

    I could probably be happy skiing the top 4/5 and keep the Zealot or Goliath as western travel skis. But where's the fun in that?!

    If I had to keep just one... 184 Volkl Mantra 102

    Only 13 days... Colorado Front Range

    Have skied (most to least):
    184 ON3P Billy Goat 116 Tour w/ G3 Zed - primary midwinter touring ski
    182 ON3P Woodsman 108 w/ STH2 - primary resort ski (only one inbounds day this year)
    187 Praxis Protest w/ G3 Ion LT - silly days, which yesterday was

    Haven't skied but hope to:
    186 ON3P Wrenegade 113 w/ FKS - inbounds raging, been having some boot issues with my alpine boots, plus only one inbounds day
    186 ON3P Billy Goat w/ FKS - inbounds powder
    182 Moment Belafonte - the friendlier Wren
    184 Praxis Freeride w/ Atomic Backland - these will get plenty of spring touring days

    Might get skied, but probably not:
    189 Praxis RX - no bindings right now, but could mount them up
    193 4FRNT EHP - same as above

    [EDIT: I guess I was way off. just checked my app and I have 34 resort days. plus with 13 sled days I guess I'm at 47... hmm... weird. ]

    - Shark Snowsurf powsurfer.

    Around 28 days entirely in Oregon. Mostly Mt. Hood region, Three Sisters Region, and Elkhorns.


    - Black Crows Anima FB 10x
    - Black Crows Camox FB (and more in store as we get more into spring steep skiing) 6x
    - Black Crows Corvus FB (not a great Mt. Hood ski but keeping it in the quiver for now) 6x
    - Black Crows Navis FB 3x (Just got them and really like them so probably will be skiing these a lot more soon.)
    - Black Crows Atris - 2x Daily driver in the resort. In a normal year this ski would be much higher on the list.
    - K2 Pettitor - 1x These big boys don’t come out as often as they used to but I always forget how fun and versatile they are.
    - Black Crows Ova FB - 0x. This is mostly a late season/summer touring/traverse ski so hopefully they’ll see more later in the season.

    Yeah that’s a lot of Black Crows. I like the way they ski and got at least half the quiver on sale at STP for less than the cost of one pair sticker price. Plus they’re hipster sticks, I live in PDX, so when in Rome...
