Did you know that you should only ride a pair of skis for 200 days. My cousin is a ski instructor and that is what all of the reps tell him. kinda got me thinking how many days overdue r my skis. prob 100, and thats not even taking into consideration that i ride all park with them.
For a normal skier that's a ton. If you think about it your average skier probably only skis 30 days a year. That's so many seasons on a pair of skis. If you ski a lot, especially in the park, They get busted faster. 100 days max.
The people that are generally ski instructors... and the people that reps usually refer to are weekend warriors. 200 days is a shit ton.
My Anthems are on about 100 days or so and I just am starting to lose edge on one of them. The top sheet is pretty fucked but it's just cosmetic. And I have a few chips in the bases but nothing too bad except the bases don't hold wax for shit but that is typical for most of Line's skis.
the figure 200 days of skiing isn't necessarily referring to how long the average ski holds up, but how long the camber in the typical ski lasts. Once your camber is shot (depending on the core) the ski is much less responsive and less pop.
I wish my skis lasted that long. Even if I didnt ski park at all (which is what I do 90% of the time) they STILL probably wouldnt last that long, because I'd be skiing in the trees a lot more and hitting rocks/stumps/dead babies a lot more.
