The different skis I've owned over the years. L to R: Salomon X Scream Series (1999-2000) These were my first skis which I absolutely loved at the time. Stiff with good dampening properties and could carve well. One of the widest skis at the time and considered THE skis to have for that winter. Cause of death; busted edge. Geek fact: I reckon the pro-link dampeners do work to some extent given the hairline stress fractures in the top sheet above rear pro-links after a particularly heavy backward landing. Salomon Teneighty (2000-2001) So next winter I brought a pair of Salomon 1080's using some of the insurance money I got from my busted X Scream's. I choose these skis as they were some of the most fun skis to ride on at the time. Cause of death; busted edge (and by now I had enough of Salomon's build quality). Geek fact: Well there isn't any with this mass market ski Line Mothership (2002-2003) I brought these skis after demoing a pair in Tignes. They were one of the largest powder skis around that season and gave me the first true sensation of floating on powder when skiing off piste. This was also the first winter Line began distributing skis in the UK (and Europe) and consequently there are very few of these skis around. Geek fact: To date I have only seen the two demo skis that I tried in Tignes and one other pair on the slopes in Europe. I know there a few more around but you can pretty much guarantee that if you see someone skiing these in the Alps it is probably me. These skis super versatile and refuse to die. hence I am still using them for mixed conditions. K2 Hell Bents (2008-2009) This season I decided to acquire a pair of full on powder skis. These skis are huge! Despite supposedly being 189's they are longer than my 195 X Scream's and I ended up having to buy a new ski bag just to accommodate them. These skis have a rocker base which makes them float like a boat in powder and ski effortlessly switch in powder. Their size can make them cumbersome in tight trees and they are a handful on moguls and chopped up pistes. But on powder and on freshly groomed pistes their awesome fun. Geek fact: I using Salomon STH12 bindings instead of the typical Marker bindings these are typically sold with as I like the sturdy but light feel of Salomon bindings. Next season... Well I was thinking of getting a pair of all mountain skis to accompany the Hell Bents, but seeing as the Motherships are refusing to die I might just stick with them. Now I've shown you mine show me yours. Update: The following season I brought a pair of Line Prophet 100's and fitted touring bindings to themTypical interior BC setup, 99-02 (Greatest skis ever)
Although the Volkl Explosiv 3s are a decade old, and the Salomon S900s are a good 15 years old (and probably no longer safe to use) this ski/binding set-up remains an alltime fave, and the most reliable for all-conditions descents. I am not one of them (yet) but there are people that still buy-up pairs of these skis just to have 'backups' around--they were *that* good when they came out..
