    Comes with demo bindings adusvdble to any boot size.

    I love these skis. They are beautiful but I don't ski these enough to warrant keeping them around.


    They are 92 underfoot and love, love, love soft packed powder. I've had them in a few inches of powder and they are just very fun and nimble. They are OK in some hard pack but come alive when the snow is softer. They are fun in bumps and pivot very easy.

    Meier makes one heck of a ski and I'm looking for someone to love these like I wish I could.

    Here's a little about them

    https://meierskis.com/products/big-nose-kate

    Product Specs

    Gender : Female
    Lengths : 165
    Sidecut Radius : 20m
    Tip/Waist/Tail : 125-92-112
    Weight: 5.9 - 6.75 lbs without bindings.

    They are light so would probably make a nice touring ski as well.

    Here's a few pics. I paid $600 for them and they were demo skis that were only used a couple times. They are in amazing shape. $500 shipped or pickup in CT or southern Vermont. Will consider reasonable offers.

    They have a doc holiday ski also. Those Meier folks have some fun ski names that's for sure.

    It's bad luck to sell your powder skis!

    I know that's is what Confucius says but these aren't my powder skis so may we have lots of powder this coming season. They are 92 underfoot. I'm replacing them with something more hard snow friendly but can still handle some softer snow. If these don't sell I'll just keep them aside for out west trips. I skied them at Copper for 2 days last January and had a blast. On a superficial note they are very striking. Even my SO who could care less about ski graphics went wow these are nice looking skis.

    Last skis I'm selling. Would make a great out west ski. Could even be a one ski quiver.

    Spread the word.

    I’m bumping as well.
    These are exceptionally well built, and ski exceptionally well. Made in small numbers in the USA. Most will never see them in a ski shop, and few on the hill {under the feet of good skiers who love the brand}.

    I am shocked that this did not sell when first posted. At this price they are a tremendous deal. If they were the right size for any of my family, I would have jumped on them.

    ....and encourage somebody else to do so!
