Two years ago, I had only one pair (the skinny tele skis in the middle, below). The year after, I had two active pairs (the 179 PEs to the right, and the BH Districts on far right). First they were mounted tele, now alpine. This year, I have five pair leaning against my wall.
Now all we need is some snow. It looks like a wet, heavy storm will be blowing in later this week. With any luck, it’ll be followed in rapid sucession by several more of the same to get a good base in place.
