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 :-)

I think it just goes to show that there's a mug born every minute. TBF the list price on some skis I've had over the years is sometimes not that far off those levels, but I didn't, and wouldn't dream of paying that much, no matter how good they may be.

Not really - I think $1200 minimum is pretty much the tag price on any ski that can be badged as premium in the US these days. Different question whether those encouraging people to buy them as the "ultimate in refinement" etc are laying out that sort of money themselves.

Skiers on the whole are mugs - there's a whole massive group who can be fobbed off with any old rot in the rental market and then there is a whole slice of "I want nice things and can afford them" or "I can justify this because I'll ski x% better". Then there are those of us that consider ourselves not mugs but who still buy more skis than we can ever wear out in a lifetime rolling eyes

@Dave of the Marmottes, I think spyderjon told me he’d had people lose interest in Scott skis because they are too cheap Madeye-Smiley

I love their skis and the pairs I’ve had have lasted really well and given me excellent value. But last time I bought a pair they were $1299 (reduced to $1099 in Dreamtime sale). An increase of $250 to $1549 in 1 year is too much. I’m out

@BobinCH, I am slightly struggling to work out how you established that a pair of skis (and not your only pair ( and not spent their so far life on east coast boilerplate (etc.))) "lasted really well" in a year???

Call me old fashioned, etc.

I’m sure the price increases relate less to increased costs, as the fact that the original owner Stephen Drake was ousted a couple or three years back, so DPS stopped being a personal passion project and became a business opportunity. They also massively expanded so no doubt have huge overheads, and the ‘carbon’ skis are all made in the US of A, so the labour costs are real.

I’m pretty sure they were around $1000 when I bought my first pair, but the exchange rate wasn’t far off 2:1 back then Confused

Well if @BobinCH isn't buying any that will put a severe dent in DPS' sales figures...but more importantly it means I have nothing to ski on in a years time when I want a new-ish pair for myself Very Happy

Who pays RRP anyway? I have a price I’m prepared to pay for anything and I wait for the sales or a deal. If it doesn’t get to that figure I walk away.
