    Folsom Primary 190s for charity

    I want new skis, but have too many skis to get away with it. I need to make room. Lots of people aren't doing well in the pandemic.

    I have [one pair left] of Folsom Primary skis in 190. They are roughly as stiff as the Blister "Hammer" skis. Never really clicked with me, somehow, so time to let them go. They're fairly straight (25M sidecut) decently playful, check all the boxes, just never really my thing somehow.

    Mounted for a 316 BSL. With a Warden 13. They come with the bindings.

    Here's the deal: $400 + shipping. Pay me the shipping, donate the rest to a charity and show me the donation receipt (Sierra Community House is my local go to). If you donate MORE than $400, I will match anything you donate above $400 (up to say $600/pair of skis).

    If this works, I'll clear out some other skis the same way.

    I run a charity. @dasrathnagarproject on instagram. We operate a sewing school for lowest caste women in India. Currently raised $700 of $2000 this round. Also work and ski Alta everyday! Yew!

    Rather than kick the tires on these skis I just want to give props and a bump to this thread. Mighty generous and admirable.

    Sturdier skis still available. Get some great, fancy skis for cheap, help make the world better. Force me to match funds. Help make room in my closet for new skis.

    This is what the charity I've been matching to has done in the last year:

    For some context, during COVID-19 we have provided:
    • Over $515,000 in Rental Assistance (333 applications processed)
    • Over $152,000 in Utility Assistance
    • More than 23,700 meals provided to 499 households
    • More than 104 individuals/families received mediation and legal services
    • Experienced a 200% increase in calls to our Crisis Line for help with domestic/intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child abuse, and mental health needs
