If you were allowed quivers from only one ski manufacturer, what would you choose?

I think either Blister or Ski Essentials does this with their reviews so I t
hought it might be fun to see how folks here would pick for a one, two or three ski quiver if limited to a single manufacturer. I picked a few of the sponsors here and added Rossignol because, well, I love Rossignol. :)

My quivers are based on my living in the PNW and skiing in the West. You'll see that my preferences will lie toward a slightly wide 1SQ and that I get fairly narrow and racy in my 3SQs. I do not need ultra-wide powder skis because I do not and will not chase big pow days.

If forced to choose, I'd go with the DPS 1SQ, Liberty 2SQ and either Rossi or Salomon 3SQ.

What do you got? Tell us a few manufacturers you'd be open to, which skis and which quivers you like best.

Here's what I went with:


DPS

One Ski: Foundation Cassiar 94C2

Two Skis: Foundation Cassiar 87C2 & Foundation Wailer 106C2

Three Skis: Alchemist Cassiar 82, Foundation Cassiar 94C2, Foundation Wailer 112RP


Fischer

One Ski: Ranger 99 TI

Two Skis: Ranger 92 TI & Ranger 102 FR

Three Skis: RC ONE 86 GT Multiflex, Ranger 99 TI, Ranger 107 TI


K2

One Ski: Mindbender 99 Ti

Two Skis: Mindbender 90 Ti & Mindbender 108 Ti

Three Skis: Iconic 84 Ti, Mindbender 90 Ti, Mindbender 108 Ti


Liberty

One Ski: Origin 96

Two Skis: Evolv 90 & Origin 106

Three Skis: V82, Origin 96, Origin 112


Rossignol

One Ski: Experience 94 Ti

Two Skis: Experience 88 Ti & Soul 7 HD

Three Skis: Hero Elite Plus Ti 78, Black Ops Escaper 94, Soul 7 HD


Salomon

One Ski: QST 99

Two Skis: QST 92 and QST 106

Three Skis: S/Force Bold +Z12 84, QST 99, QST 106

I had a Rossi quiver a few years back.

Hero ST Carbon
Temptation 88

Now it's not one manufacturer. But could be as I would like to get rid of the Vantage 95C. So I could pick up a new Nordica in the 80-88 range.

I am very happy with my current 1 manufacturer (sort of) quiver!

1 ski: MX84
2 skis: MX84 + FX96W
3 skis: MX84 + FX96W + MX89

My MX Limited is a bonus - too pretty to not own them!

Nordica for me:

One of their current carvers (actually remain thrilled with my old Fire Arrow 80s).
Enforcer 88
Enforcer 100
Enforcer 115 (though I'd really prefer a 110 made by simply stretching my 100 by ten mms).

My Elans

1) Apex
2) Olympic mons

Really that is all I need to cover all the bases where I ski. Apex for daily and Olympic for big snow days and after when it gets tracked out. Still two of my favorites.

Nordica would actually be one I would seriously consider. Mine would be some combination of:

Navigator 85
Enforcer 88
Enforcer 94
Enforcer 100
Enforcer 104 Free
Enforcer 110 Free

Stöckli

One: SR 97
Two: AX and SR 107
Three: AX, SR 97 and SR 107

Four: AX, SR 88, SR 97 and SR 107

Oh, Wait... That is my quiver!

Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing the new SR 105 come up on an end of season deal. Demo'd them in Dec. THAT would be my one ski quiver.

Quite a few Stöckli fans here. That’s more spending than most skiers are will to do. Says a lot about the commitment to skiing of the members of this forum.

Is there such thing as a poor man’s alternative?

Fischer or Elan for me.
I have the Motive 95 and the Ranger 98Ti. I'm considering the Ranger FR 115. If I can find one for a reasonable price, I'd jump on it.
