$2,490's not even that bad.
Sterling skis may be the most expensive I've seen. Check out what comes in their Matterhorn Speed package, $3500:
Sterling’s Poles are pure carbon fiber, lightweight and pencil thin. Our Sterling Ultralite has a strength-to-weight ratio 600% greater than aluminum but weighs 50% less.
Our Plates come from a race heritage and are made out of high quality lightweight aluminum. The plates provide even distribution from edge to edge and enhance precision and quickness when entering a turn.
Our Performance Bindings are specifically designed to work with our plates. On the fly, you can adjust the binding forward on the plate for precision, easy handling and comfort, or move them backward for smoothness, gliding and stability.
All of theses items are packaged in a velvet- -lined hard traveling case.
Little of what I do has any meaning or lasting significance.
