    Skied 40 days...all at Whistler/Blackcomb:

    Sold:

    181 Salomon QST 106 - 4 days (bought it cheap in summer, sold for what I paid to get the M102... and I had the E104),

    183 Faction Candide 5.0 - 4 days (sold after ~35 days on these mostly last season....MCL tear found it hard to push a 122mm waist),

    In use:

    180 Dynastar Proto 118 - 8 days (awesome and nicely replaced the Candide 5.0 for inbounds pow),

    180 Elan Ripstick 106 - 2 days (mounted with Shifts for slackcountry, really really like this ski, so light but still solid, just fun),

    180 Rustler 11 - 4 days (the one-ski quiver ski hasn't seen much use due to E104 and Proto 118?),

    177 M102 - 5 days (great ski, no speed limit, but tiring cause you ski too fast, and not nimble enough in steep/sketchy/dicy with my bum knee, will likely sell or keep for groomers only),

    179 Enforcer 104 Free - 13 days (104mm has been my go to ski with my tweaked knee, this ski seems to be the right mix of width/solidness/playfulness),

    TOTAL DAYS = 40

    Changes?:

    Likely selling the 177 M102s and buying some 180 Ripstick Black Edition 96s?

    Hankering for a 181 Icelantic Nomad 115 again?

    Have an unmounted pair of 177 (180) K2 Catamarans? Not sure what to do with these? May try to snag some cheap Shifts/Tectons in summer for these, or just sell them. I seem to be getting away from 120mm waisted skis....prolly cause no Mt Baker due to Covid?

    85ish days, I'm trying to ski every day of 2021 that lifts are turning.

    My quiver of personally owned skis is a Black Crows Arto in 183 skied it three times. Had a Stockli WC Ski Cross in 185 that I skied twice this year before I sold it.
    I own a store so I have a demo fleet at my disposal. I think I've skied over 80 different skis from Dynastar, Stockli, Volkl, Black Crows, Black Diamond, Armada and some others as reps drop stuff for us to try, hoping to get on the wall.

    Thanks for playing everyone. I need to clarify my OP, 7/10 was meant to denote 7 out of 10 skis in the quiver saw action this year. Some of you caught on. If we're talking quality of the season this year has been a 9/10 for me.

    Couple updates, I unloaded a pair of tele skis I never used this year, and picked up 2 new (to me) skis that I've put some time on and I'm pretty excited about:

    4FRNT Turbo 182 - damp 104 underfoot twin tip, low camber, 28m radius, pretty versatile, fun in pow, slush, whatever. Big rooster tails is a +
    Not sure that these will bump something else out of the lineup, but I foresee putting a lot of time on these next season.


    K2 Apache Coomba 188 - just one day on them in slush, mounted with dynafits, 102 underfoot, low camber, 22m radius. Kinda heavy, but that's what I like, super intuitive, predictable, stable, really excited to do some spring touring on these. I think these will probably replace the BD havocs I currently have in that slot.

    So that's 9/11 skis for me this season, and that's probably not going to change.

    41 days so far. Hopefully still some touring and maybe a couple days of lift served summer skiing. However; COVID and the weather has made it a bad year for the favourites, but thanks to a surprise 40cm dump last weekend, the BGs got 1 day at least.

    Probably 20-25 of the days have been groomers exclusively, but due to warm weather, quite a few of those days have been slushy and nice.

    Brahma 82 7
    Wren 108 6
    Superbro 5
    BMT94 5
    Wren 102 5
    BMT109 4
    Rustler 11 4
    EHP 186 2
    EHP 193 1
    BG 1
    C&D 1
    Bodacious 0

    So 11/12.

    Probably BMT94s for the rest of the touring season, and one of the Wrens - or maybe the Rustlers - for anything lift served. Or the Bodaciouses - just for reaching 12/12.

    45ish days in Western Canada (Primarily Kicking Horse and Lake Louise). Really solid snow this year!

    Most > Least

    184CM Fischer Ranger 102FR: Mounted +2, this ski is insanely fun/versatile. Not the best for bullet proof days though.

    190CM Moment Wildcat: Mounted on line. Lives up to the hype, super fun, but float isnt stellar once the snow is 30CM+ If you like to ski aggressively and pressure the tips...

    177 Volkl Mantra M5: Mounted on line. Amazing on-piste no matter how firm things get. Phenomenal carver, hip drags are a breeze. Solid off piste but not very fun. Gets the job done though.

    ended up with 110 days on snow and every day of 2021 checked off.
    I'm a huge Stormrider fan, love 'em in all the widths but ended up mounting a Laser AR with pivots for myself near the end of the season (lots of Stormriders in the fleet so don't need my own I guess?)
    loved the Mfree 108 as mentioned elsewhere, did not like the Mfree 99, I preferred the Slicer/Menace
    I'm indifferent on the Mantra/Katana which we sell lots of but I find pretty generic, people love them but I guess I have other options (the new M6 is really nice so maybe next year it gets in rotation more?)
    Skied the Atris a fair bit, it is a great all round ski, on pow days I usually go Anima, SR 105 or Mfree108

    I skied 20% of my quiver about 80% of the time and 80% of my quiver about 20% of the time.

    Edited/ updated my original post. Skied 19 of 22 pair. Not bad but should sell some skis next season. Easier to buy however!

    Had to tell my touring quiver, you'll get nothing and like it (That's 3 pair).

    Skied all but 2 days on my GPO's, with the 2 days being on my new Praxis Sluggers (102mm)

    I have since added a ski to the quiver.

    Slalom race ski that's used for midwest skiing wasn't used either
    (I haven't skied in the midwest in 8-9 years), but girls are getting to the age that that may soon change.
    Aggressive in my own mind

    I don't count, but here is my best guess

    182 UL GPO with SSL 2.0's - 15 days
    180 Zero G 105's with SSL 2.0's - 3 days
    187 Protests with SSL 2.0's - 10 days
    181 QST 106's with Tectons - 6 days
    186 Enforcer 104 Frees with STH2 - 2 days (sold)
    188 Rustler 11's with Shifts - 2 days
    186 Billy Goats with Wardens - 0 days
    188 Corvus with STH2 - will mount and ski these next week.

    I've barely skied the last six weeks. Just working and taking care of kids. I'm kind of losing my shit. Before that I avoided resorts (unless skiing with my boy) not out of fear of Covid, but out of a desire for some fucking peace and quite, which has been elusive this year. Mostly skied with my dog. Looking forward to getting some use out of the Corvus at Loveland and Abasin next week, and will be skiing the Zero G's and QST's into the summer. Can't believe I never skied the BG's...

    192 m-free 108 - 18ish.
    192 gunsmokes - 2
    192 R11s - 3
    PROTOs - 2
    Menace 98s - 3
    Stormrider TTs - 0

    M-free 108s are making me question if I need the stormrider TTs or gunsmokes anymore. Maybe even the menace 98 and R11 too; I'd just replace them both with something like a line vision.
