I don't know why some of the guys on the setups thread have like 5, 7, 10 pairs of skis. I dont know why you would need more than 3. Think about it, If you had a pair of AR6s, Seths, and some Prophets, what else would you need. I could handel any condition with thoses.
Differnt pair of skis for differnt conditions. I would LOVE to have 5 pairs of skis (again), but finanacial situations have barred me from attaining that. So for next season I'm going to have rock skis, everyday skis, and some big, stiff powder skis for charging.
the key setup is park, powder and all around, like waist of 80-85, 90-95, and 110+. but we're not all fortunate enough to have that so i suggest like a 90 something waist, you can use that for everything, IE: next years chronic blend, that shit is dope
i have 5 pairs presently that i use
170 atomic race skis- for super icy days that i dont want to be in the park
165 dynastar 60's-teaching skis
178 jp's- pow skis
170 pipe cleaners- park ski
198 volant- big mountian carving
its like buying a ferrari and shitting in it- happywhenhard
i have one pair, i like it that way best. i dont care if the ski is a "park" ski and not powder ski! i learn to know the ski, spend alot of time with it. and its no prob using it for anything.. i ski raceslopes, park, powder and just chill around with them... i think its bether to get the feeling of one pair rather than having one ski modified for one thing... ofcourse if i had powder skis, powder would prob be easier, but would it be more fun?
Due to lack of money, I do not have 5 skis. Although, I could easily ski 5 pair. fat everyday, really fat powder, fat touring ski with AT setup, fattish park, and one good fat telemark set up. 5 fat skis with different purpose, binding mount, and set up.
I broke two pairs last month, so I only have my pow skis left. But I think 3 pairs is mandatory: urban, park, pow. I can also see how a touring setup would be nice, and if I rode pipe, maybe some skis with edges...5 is legit.
first of all, cuz skis break, really fast if you ride a lot of park. Secondly, cuz it's fun to have a quiver to choose from each morning. Every ski is different man, and riding different skis for different scenarios/conditions is fo sho neccessary. word
i have one pair of skis, troublemakers and i use them for everything. i guess if ur rich go beg ur parents to buy you 5 pairs, by next year ill have the troubs and maybe some arvs or moships. and thats all i really need.

Big Mountain Ski
Park Specfici SKi

now OBVIOUSLY you can get away without this many skis lol.. but im jsut saying how if u buy super specialized stuff and are sitting on piles of money you can easily have 5 pairs or more
