so i want to build myself a little fall/winter rail setup. however, i dont have a pair of skis that i want to sacrifice doing rails/ fuckin around on dry land. so, is there any reason i shouldnt buy 20$ skis off craigslist and use them? are the 80's bindings just shit? are the 50 mm skis going make rails difficult? im assuming id be able to blowtorch the tails and bend them up. yes?
also, were moving to a house with a few acres. (were in oregon) if we were to get like a 6 inches to a foot of snow like last year, could i gather it up in a huge fuckin pile and have it stay frozen until early spring? im thinking like a 10x10x10 cube covered with a tarp. has anyone tried it?
