    Building out a Quiver for my wife - What ski to get her next

    So my wife asked me the other day if I thought she should get another pair of skis … like she needed to ask I think everyone should get another pair of skis. We are heading to Banff in a weeks time for a 9 day ski vacation and I plan to have her demo a bunch of different skis so we can dial in...

    Kill my quiver

    Since I seem committed to owning more skis than days I ski in a year, I own or am very interested in the skis below. My interests range from Northeastern hardpack to Utah powder and a variety of terrain. If hardpack—>powder defines the extremes (if it’s all ice, I’ll stay home), I’m happy to...

    Considering Twin Tips

    I am considering adding a set of twin tips to my quiver. Actually I'm almost dead set on doing it. I'd like some input from everyone with twin tip experience to help me narrow down what to demo. I am looking for a playful ski in the 100-108 waist range for bumps, trees, small jumps, crud, and...

    Help me obsess

    Let's say that I am replacing my Fischer Motive 95 skis. And let's say that I can get any of the following skis and bindings for short money to use as my one ski western quiver. Which way would you go? Head Core 93 Nordica Enforcer 93 Rossignol Experience 94 Liberty V92 And for bindings...

    Alternative Term for Quiver?

    Skiers who own and use more than one pair of skis usually refer to their multiple skis as a quiver. Even skiers who only own one pair of skis sometimes use the phrase "one ski quiver." The term quiver originally referred to the case which held an archer's arrows. Metonymy, the close association...

    Another One: What Ski For Me?

I'm not opposed to having a multi-ski quiver, but want to start with the first purchase as if I...

    Justify Your Quiver To the Internet

    Since @Ken_R 's for sale thread was devolving into this, I thought it might make sense to break it off. What is your quiver? Why is your quiver setup the way it is? How much of it is explicit design as a quiver vs a historic accretion vs built around one particular ski you love? If you could...

    Blizzard Brahma, or, will my quiver overlap too much?

    Hey skipeople, I unloaded all of my last season skis at a ski swap this weekend, so I'm on to my changes for this year. I'm thinking a quiver like this: Frontside/bumps/carving ski. I'm not a great carver and just an ok bumps skier, my main goal for this season is to be the best skier I can...

    Kore 93 Verses Stormrider 95

    The vast majority of my skis are Stockli Lazer series - some with Marker WC piston race plate. I love the way that they ski. My everyday work ski to teach on is a Lazer AX. Looking for an in-bounds powder ski. Looking for something a bit more playful than Stockli Lazer's vibe. I've never had...

    Head Supershape Speed sizing

    I've got a chance to pick up some 16/17 Supershape Speeds in 170 for short money. Looking for feedback as to whether I'd like the 170 and should jump on the deal, or whether I'm better suited for a 163. I'm 5'9" 150lb male, solid advanced but not expert, no racing background. I've got the 16/17...

    Narrower ski to create quiver

    I currently own and ski on Head Great Joys. I got them in Tahoe in 2017, and they were great for that season. Even this past season, I really enjoyed them; except for in tight spots, like steep trees, chutes, moguls. Is there a ski that would be good for ice but also moguls, trees, etc? Or would...

    mogul skis

    Hi I did a quick search and I've found a couple of threads similar to this but none with the range of skis I'm looking specifically. So anyway, I'm looking for mogul skis but not MOGUL SKIS per se (ie idone, hart, etc) for next season. I'd like to do other stuff on them when I take them out for...

    Fischer The Curv questions

    Hello-new to the forum. I am in the process of turning over my quiver and was looking for some insight into two skis, and was wondering if anyone here had much experience with either. For the past few years I’ve had two different pairs of “versatile” all mountain skis that I had to cover my...

    Progression from Kastle MX88s?

    Ran a lot of searches and I know who a lot of the heavy hitters are out there, but sometimes, the frame of reference for these recommendations is western packed powder and off-piste, versus my own frame of reference, which is Mid-Atlantic Ice Coast, and one to two weeks out west (for packed...

    Hi All Heading to Big White in 3 weeks. I have 4 pairs of skis and will be bringing 2: One for powder conditions and one for days with harder snow/chop/crud, etc. For powder, I have the Soul 7 and the Patron. Went to Whistler last year with both of these and had 5 bluebird days with hard...

    Sold 2016 Atomic Redster XTI 164cm--SOLD

    $400 plus shipping. These skis are nothing short of outstanding on hard pack and ice. They ski short turns and long turns. They do as you ask, you're wish is their command. They are 72 underfoot, have a short turning radius and are just so easy to ski. I have 3 pairs of skis under 78...

    The Unbiased Biased Review

    Can any review be completely unbiased? We honestly don't think so, and we think it is unrealistic to expect it. We all have biases; as much as we try to be impartial, biases build up over the years. Now, before getting out of whack, let's embrace our humanness. We all have preconceived opinions...

    What is NOT in your quiver?

    What are you missing? Sure, most of us don't have a 50M DH ski or ever considered getting one. Or we don't have 150cm ballet skis..well, I retract that,2 some here have ballet skis, myself included. But realistically, what are you missing? If someone gave you a coupon for "one pair of skis of...
