i think that we all have had that pair of skis that we used for years because it took abuse like hefty woman, and pleasured you like a bowl of hot soup on a cold rainy day. the pair that made you fall in love with skiing. i personally know for me that was when i worked hard all seasons dong different odd jobs, making flyers passing them out so i could buy my surface watch lives. the truly do everything better than anything ski. i love em to much to sell em. what about you lets hear your tale on your favorite pair of skis, not your newest, just the ones with the most memories. tell me newschoolers, tell me about your first love.
First and only pair so far. Ridden them for 4 seasons now, primarily on rails. Only 2 edge cracks, and hella chipping. the have begun to rocker themselves and are noodly as fuck. Things are bombproof. Hit so many rails that the edge rounded down so much, the base has rounded with it. K2 Fujatives, im a buyer for life.

Just boobs, hookers, blow and skiing, year round-papalanks.
for me it was me JO pros. they are the skis i learned how to do everything with. but now im upgraded to some Jmos. and those have deffinately made me want to ski every day this year, but sadly i live in Michigan and the weather has been pretty shitty all year
My One Lifes.
I wish I took better care of them at the beginning of the season when I knew conditions were crap. Took out a good 6 inches of edge, didn't bother to fix it since I haven't been skiing much this year.
They didn't make it through the season:(
My Elizabeth's for sure. I had wanted a pair since they were first released but couldn't afford them, so I worked my ass off for a summer to get the previous seasons pair with Jesters. I wouldn't sell them for anything
My 08/09 Armada El Reys, stiff, still have life/pop. I have around 100 days on them (at the resort).....so bombproof. Edges are so dull that i have no control what so ever on ice, but no cracks that i have found. major topsheet chipping, 1 base gouge but show no sign of slowing down.

I'm just skiing park now, on some old AR6's (David Bowie) with a busted edge. Aha. I live in calgary though, so I took up park. When I decide to go home and visit Golden (Kicking Horse), I'll just rent.
Been beating them to absolute shit for 3 years strait and am yet to get a edge crack.
Wiley Miller: "Well skiing is kinda like partying, you swerve to and fro, hit shit, and sometimes you fall. You can be hurting the next day and say iíll never do that again, yet a few days later your back at the same stupid antics you were doing."
my 08/09 laroses my first park skis and they are the skis i progressed on and still am, they developed some rocker in the tips (kinda a bonus), no edge cracks after multiple days of rails, boxes, rocks, trees. absolutely bombproof and fun
creativity comes to life in the darkness-surreal and dj balance
or last years t-halls. I have thrashed them and then are still shredding

We were all expecting something GRAND for our massive efforts down the line. Needless to say, all the money went to drive us 100km from home and play frisbee golf for a week at a "resort" aimed for trips for retarded people"
I skied my OG pocket rockets for 5 seasons until they turned into complete noodles that were not safe to ski. i absolutely loved/still love those skis. they were also the first pair of brand new skis i ever had so that made them even more special. now im trying to figure out what type of furniture i want to make them into to continue their legacy
I loved my very first pair of twins Salomon 1080's but my favorite has to be my 08/09 Line Chronics. over 100 days on them, 3 edge cracks, cracked bindings, tail rocker, and an inch wide gash going down half of one ski showing the wood core. Have learned so much on them and will keep them forever. Unfortunately next year they will need replaced.
I'm gonna have to go with my beat to hell Larose pro's that I got from David Lesh. Those things rockered out like no one's business and took skiing to a whole new level for me. Now that they are retired, I turned each one into a beautiful coat rack.
06/07 Rossi Scratch FS.... such a sweet ski, beat they shit out of them for the past 5 years and still in great condition (not cosmetically of course) love that ski so much.... and thats why im buying s4's lol
I live down under... I make the best with what I have
