In the "never can have too many THE SKI" department. Found a bit of a unicorn myself. All 3 in one go. Very nice shape but looks like the bases saw the parking lot more than once. My boots fit but 3 screw threads show on the heel arms. Still lots of thread left.

TRS, 200, 180 and 2015 The Ski 180 and Scott The Ski poles (reissue). The TRS 180 was drilled for a Salomon 727..I have some extras that I will mount up so they will see snow again.

Basic black, right? Not the equipes.

Are you going to ski the moderns? Basic black with those also. I finally took the Salomon demo bindings off mine when I found some FKS 140 and rubbed off the orange graphics. A little touch up with some quality spray bomb and they were looking pretty good and skied noticeably better than the demos. I seem to have something against Rossi bindings ever since I heard that FKS stood for an expletive dismissal of Salomon. Rumour? Urban myth? Anyways, I know all the binding companies do it but I really don't get why they other brand identical bindings.

185s and 200s. The yellow/blue are fairly recent and in better shape than the ones I sort of restored a few years ago, that are on the right. Different colorblock sequence and blue bases. The current ones have black bases. It would be nice to know if it meant they were different models.

There's always a better skier, and a better collection; I just haven't seen it! This is sweet!

A new addition to the The Ski collection. I have never seen these, Nano's that are wider than the older Nano's that we have. These are 157's and graphics that are unique, very subtle blocks.

Dan, not sure but looking at the other skis, mid 90's.
The Sunday River mogul events were 92-95 I believe. That would date the circle skis at the beginning of the second round of production after he bought the company back .

Gang I found this this other day, it's a The Ski sale brochure from when I was selling The Ski at my old ski shop "Turning Point Sports". I was needing to get the details of the inside of that generation TSM (The Ski Majic (sic)). Enjoy!
