So here's my story and I'm sticking to it...
Woke up early to get first tracks for once and took out the park skis up to make a few turns before filming in the park shortly after. The time is 8:15 and i just got on the chairlift feeling good about finally making some corduroy turns early into the weekend. 8:30 I get to the top of mountain and start making my way down. Got a nice nose butter in just before i starting making some big wide turns on the 700ft of vertical we have at my home mountain. 600 feet of vertical later the grade of the slope gets a less steep and I started to lay down a nice slow carve out to the right and suddenly, my skis come right out from under me due to my dull edges leading to a release of my left ski right as I slide out on my back about 50 feet on an east coast blue square trail. (Some best skier on the mountain I am...) As I slid, my ski was moving with me and I picked it up right after I stopped. No visible problem at the time and I was perfectly fine. (no cuts/scrapes/anything) Got back in the ski and made my way down to the chairlift with no performance related issues. Got on the chairlift and my buddy, who was one chair back, said it looked like my left ski had more rocker than the other. Unfortunately I knew what that likely meant. I looked back at my ski and saw the cracked top sheet...Of course I was very upset and had lots of different questions to why this happened and the resulting answer I came to was that when the ski released, it turned over to where the bases were facing the sky and jarred the slushy surface of the snow and ended up breaking the top sheet. I figured that this was the only time that the ski would have did what it did since I did a nose butter at the top of the run and was fully supported as I rode away.
I say all of this not as a diss to ON3P at all. There is no question that these skis are absolutely amazing! They ARE my favorite ski and I have bought a pair of Kartel 98's because of how much I enjoyed the Filthy's. What I'm writing this all for is to ask for advice.
With everything said, is there any chance that the ski could be covered under the warranty? They have right around 15 days on them and were always stored inside when they were not being used.
I hate to think that my skis should have any reason to break and that maybe there honestly could be a factory defect with the ski. It can happen every now and then. Was the ski hitting the ground really going to break the ski no matter the brand?
Please give your advice, NS! Anything and everything is welcome!
