    Ok...its that time! Some in here may recognise the skis i have bought if you. Bindings suit normal dh boots or hire boots

    Both adults skis are really resort and slackcountry or gully bombing day trips skis / frame bindings. They aint light but would be good for those starting to look outside the resort but want something hefty with DIN security.

    Id bought them for me and growing fast boys but im sticking to the teles and the older boy isnt as committed as id hoped....ah well you get that, at least he still comes n skis a bit. Kids skis are too small for another.

    Postage at buyers expense. Pickup brunswick and cash preferred

    1. Elan m999 twinnies 129.99.119 R27 with diamar freeride AT bindings XL size. Suit a big bloke with big feet who skis fast i reckon...i paid $175 for them a couple of years ago so maybe $125 or best offer

    2. Blizzard skis 131.98.116 R20 with marker barons M size i think (biggest boot 28.5) and a set of cut G3 skins...suit a middle sized person...apparently a decent ski. Some repairs in the top sheet that could be repaired more neatly but bases totally fine. I paid $500 for this a couple of years ago or less....so maybe $400 or best offer

    3. Fischer RC4 kids race skis. 135cm. R10. Still a good skis for a decent kid skiier. Plenty of cosmetic wear and year but bases in great nick. boy is nearly 13 but hasnt done the puberty shoot up thing so i reckon would suit big 10-11 yo or smallish kid up to 13 or 14. Boys vary quite a bit at this age. I paid $200 for them last year, probably too much so id be happy with $125 or best offer

    Hey mate,

    As advised came here from my other thread. Skis look good, I'm interested. Will 181cm be a suitable length for me, especially given they are twin tips so my effective length will be less? I've typically only ridden 185cm all mountain rentals so my experience on different skis is pretty limited.

    you know where i live @Chaeron :) ...happy to discuss price or not sell em with the skins etc. i can send a few close ups of the topsheet. i believe those marker dukes are pretty good, if heavy....they didnt fit my older boy who has size 14 flippers, but would suit up to size 11ish i think. Skis feel like they would ski hard

    @mr what’s the length of them Blizzards. Oh, just seen in the pic they’re 173s.

    I’d grab the skis and skins, but am not after the bindings. However if you don’t want to separate them I understand and would probably take the lot.

    Small kids race skis also could make decent Figles.
    Finding S/H snowblade bindings may be a bit harder

    THX @mr . I’ll take the Blizzards with skins & bindings at the price.

    I have a mate who can use the bindings and cut to fit skins are always good to have. I’m skiing myself this weekend so might come round next week when it’s convenient for you. Will PM.
