I think I may have found JMaul's house. Well it's in the same town anyway.image Not sure if it was pre-Sandy or a post-Sandy addition.

  • I actually used 3 of those models: Rossi ST Comps (first 'real' skis'), Atomic ARC (great ski), Kästle rx12 (meh)

    Not my choice for exterior treatment, but good on 'em for the effort.

    That's what everyone says when I show them the pic. I on the other hand had none of these exact models.

    :(

  • I had friends that had about half of the skis I see. I remember seeing all of them. I'm guessing they are from the mid to late 80s.
  • I've seen a lot of skis be turned into Adirondack-like chairs. Never before seen a fence!
  • Don't think that's JMaul's house, he would still be using those Kastles  


    ;)

  • Oh, that's not a fence.. this guy (near my folks house) has a SKI FENCE!  All of his 1/3-1/2 acre is surrounded with them.. quite the 'masterpiece' :)

    In Sun Valley you can use old skis for A) Building a fence or B) Siding for your garage!

  • Love those Rossi 4S's in there.  Did anyone NOT have a pair?

  • I use a pair to mark the driveway entrance...

    Very funny, ski_it. You should have made this a "Guess Where", cuz I have no idea where it is.

    And, rickbolger. Yes, I'd be skiing those Kastle skis. They match my jacket.
    You ski because even if you don't do it well, it's still a blast....
  • Ya don't? Then it's not funny then. I think it's on Pelican Island. Near one of the bridges. If you're headed to Seaside it's on ur left.

    Now if you put that ski fence on an obscure ski hill with a limited slope view and a twig showing he would have found the location in no time. ;)

    I think it is around 45 Prince Edward Ave. It looks a little different in G maps street view but I see skis there.

    That's new. Will have to check it out next time over the bridge.

    Another use is a coat hanger. Gotta use full rocker skis for the one on the left :)]

  • I use skis as a sled to bring my snowboards to the mountain. Best use I can think of for them.  :P
