Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

The First Skis You Owned

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Back approx 18 years ago my first skis were Rossignol B2's, described as an expert all mountain ski at 76mm underfoot and a foam core that turned to noodles 4 years in.

Then Nordica Enforcer 98s at 178 cm which were my only ski for about 8 years.

Now on Nordica Dobermann SL skis at 165cm, Elan FIS sponsored race GS at 182cm for when the pistes are empty, Nordica Enforcer Free 104mm 179cm (truly amazing all round ski with a 17.5m radius which carves at high speed like a demon yet blasts off piste) and the powder monsters, Bent Chetler 120mm at 185cm length, another pretty good all rounder but hard to carve on piste all day.

Hmm,

Back in the days behind the Iron Curtain, I started off on a pair of ATOMIC RC - locally made, 200cm monsters. As I got better my dad bought me a pair of Atomic ARC Bionic Module Technic 208cm... Various used pairs came and went, but they were always Atomic...

Now on Atomic BC 120 in 193 and Rossi Sky7 HD 188 with Quiver Killer inserts and Shifts. Still have a pair of Atomic Sugar Daddies 193 with Dukes and pair of Sporten Weeds 191 with Tyrolia Adrenalin 16s...

Some rental Volkls I got for like 50 bucks. Two weeks after that I got some very decent Line Supernaturals 92 though.

I still have both pairs back at my friends shed back in Banff (I hope so) Puzzled

K2 Burnin' Luv- purchased at the Ski Show before I headed off for my first (and only) season as a chalet "girl" in 2005/06.
There were so many around, I wrote my initials on them in indelible marker pen. Sold them about 4 years later. Women's skis with flowers on...ugh... rolling eyes

A few years ago Mr P spotted them -still bearing my initials, and still being skied.


Since then-I've have been a bit of a ski shopaholic...So the complete list would be embarrassingly long.

I borrowed a pair of Omeglass for an Italian holiday in 1976/77 - they were great skis. And my beloved Course GS went in the Hippo Bag just a few weeks ago!

Dynamic VX10 circa 1985, the cheapest, nastiest skis available that the local nightclub gave away as prizes for getting drunk & playing silly games. They lasted 5 days on snow before I clipped a rock & ripped almost the entire edge off.

A pair of red Spalding planks with bindings that needed to be reset by pulling up the lever at the back. A right pain in the back bottom but I was 5 and they were cheaper than hiring for two weeks in tax free Livignio.
Had about 4 pairs handed down over the years until,

Bobble)
Rosi 4s loved these, then 4s vas
Fischer RC4 & k2 kvc both stolen from hotel car park in Washington (uk) when there for a race.
Replaced on insurance with two pairs of
K2 kvc loved those things
Replaced one pair with a pair of 7sk these were ok but wasn’t racing anymore so could have bought something more useful to be honest.
After that. Too many to mention!

I had a long thin pair of Elan skis, all I know is that when I started skiing I was suprised at how thin the skis were, and when I bought my first pair they were Elan, but now 29 years later I can't remember the numbers , have quite a few pairs since. I only threw out the First pair last year, they attic was getting clogged.

1988 - Dynastar Course (with the red blobs on the tips!)

1st skis I skied on were some varnished wooden ones, C.1971, but can't remember the make...

The first ones I can remember were my penfriend's brown Rossignol Strato (102s?), approx 1973, followed by Strato 650s... Very long and very thin!
