In general, more durable skis are heavier and often stiffer, as well as more expensive. The only truly more durable brands are ON3P, Praxis, and J skis, all of which use thick bases and edges, but maintenance is a large part of durability. Read up on how to prevent edge cracks and core shots ect. no matter what you ski you get. At the end of the day though, a majority of NSers will tell you that if you are looking for durability, go with ON3P
Agreed. I busted up two paints of on3p jmos. But then again I'm a bigger guy and generally extremely rough on my equipment. But you get what you pay for most of the time. Just do some research, read reviews, etc

we already went over this in a different thread. companies use different materials from different brands with different quailty standards. This all means there will be differences with EVERY brand as far as durability goes. I will leave it at that
We don't need websites to plan our ski days, we just wake up in our car at the bottom of the mountain. -Ribss.
Completely not what I am saying. Each brand has totally different levels of durability, those are just brands who are recognized by the users as being the most durable skis they have used. A reputation is not earned in the ski community on false grounds. There may me a multitude of brands that are highly durable but do not get as much recognition for it; these are simply the brands that have the largest proportion of positive feedback from actual skiers who ride them and therefore are confirmed testimonials.
