When do you retire a ski?
Just wondering when most people retire or finally trash a pair of skis. I personally use them until I am grinding away the core. How about you?

I dunno, normally every 3 or 4 seasons I'll buy myself new skis. I just upgraded from my 02-03 Mad Trixs to 04-05 PEs this season. You can tell when the ski is shot...when it has lost all its pop etc.
We'll have you dead pretty soon.
right now i'm still growing so for me it's whenever a ski is too small i need to get a new one

depends on a price to need ratio
Like a virgin on prom night.
It could not be put any better. price:need
That is simply genius
well with the rail abuse 1 1/2-2 years
what's up now bitch

as long as it takes until they snap in half. everyone could use some urban skis.

i got free skis last year so i trashed 3 pairs last season and have one pair i still use for trashing
i need a new pair every season, i am a very aggressive skier, and i do rails.
ill be super rich and own mt.hood and let everybody from ns ski for free... except freezed
until they break, whether it be delam, snap in half, edge coming out...usually around 3 pairs a year, went through 5 a few years ago
i recently retired my of 02 skogens after i just ripped out my bindings which was the third time i drilled them. I think im gonna put em on my wall cause they were so sweet

I have last years tms and their edges last 3/4 a season. Now they are urban skis
"Do you smell what im steppin in?"
i never trash skis
BIN DER SPRINGENDER TEUFEL
Every year. Mine are usually trashed after a year of rails and whatever else i throw them at. I think now i have a park ski, rail/urban ski, and pow ski (all acumulated over three seasons), I will save the pow ski from the rails. But that might not happen.

i retire the ski when it finally begs for mercy...
but i buy skis every year
i have about 12 pairs of useless TM's in my loft
^ wanna send em to me? :)

when i say useless i mean that they can't be used, we might make a char out of em'
well I'm pretty sure my only pair of sticks right now is what most people would consider useless, but I still ride em everywhere.
quacksliver - Steamboat
well most of these skis wouldn't even move on snow no bases,no edges, delams
1 to 1 and half season. Depends if I break em or not.

depends how fast the edges crack
So long fried rice, hello fried chicken!
every two years usually. but this year im strpped for cash so maybe 2 1/2 or 3 for my PEs
haha if u break them, get that shit warrantied up.
Virginia riding since a long ass time ago. Got the real east coast crud out here.
i always got to laugh at my brother when he says, hey fvck, youre skis are missing some edges. they are destroyed, you cant use them.
i mean theres a lack of 1 inch under the binding. you can still carve em well and they are powder skis so i dont have problem with it...
but all the racers or all mtn skiers (like my bro) throw the skis in the lake when theres missing a little edge....
what ski is so destroyed that you have no chance to use it as a urban ski. id say pretty fvcked up....
"for reals is everyone in here kidding?? OK first of all if you dont know what chads gap is thats kinda lame. Secondly They have been hitting chads gap for some time now. Im surprised now one has seen the cllip of candide thovex sticking a D spin over chads gap. Its kinda been around alot and been in a few articles." - TravisMC in a thread where everyone made fun of the creator who asked if chads had been hit with skis. thx alot

Skied mine till I broke one in half.
One pair has the edges blown, but I'm saving them for urban.
One pair has wood showing through the base, but I still use them for skiing the rocks at A-basin.
usually a new pair after 2 seasons
I ride them untill the edges are done, and even then i keep them for the urban jibing.
Matman10: Man lat you had that 7 down but you binder poped off
Laterails:Yeah i think they aren't adjusted, or it could be the fact that all that is holding them together is one of my pubes
i just get new skis when really really good deals come across and move the old skis to something else like park only or urban or whatever they are best suited for you should use a ski until it snaps in half
poach: To take or appropriate something unfairly or illegally (you know what I'm talking about)
i usually dont buy something unless i can use it for 2 seasons.
I SMELL DEATH ON YOU!!!
Retire a ski when it snaps in half. If they edges are shot just slide rails with it.
almost every season
I hate racers!!!!!!

I still have red and silver concepts. I think I've been skiing on them for 5 years now. Same Mad_Trix for 3 years as well.
I don't see much park action and ski 20 - 30 days a season so they are in good shape.
The retired ones weren't good skis to start with.
I have a pair of skis I use for rails that are either just old skis of mine or skis i get at a ski swap for 50 bucks. then i have good skis that I use until they are too small. I try to get two years out of them
Where did you get your clothes, the toilet store?
skier8990 aim. talk to me if you like
I ski pretty hard, so i save up every 2 years to buy myself new skis, its kind of a treat to stay up to date with the cool new stuff too.

"I only drink on 2 occasions. When I'm thirsty, and when I'm not."
1-2 pairs a season easily if you are riding a lot. Especially park skis get beat after like a month or so of hard park riding
when it breaks or becomes otherwise unridable.
stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

keep it real.
I usually get maybe 4 pairs a season. I never break any of them tho.
one pair will last me about a season before the disasters to rails do em in

Every season or about 140 days whichever comes first, by then most skis are just garbage, especially when you are bouncing off rocks and trees all day long
We pay our debt sometimes.
2 pairs a season
