I wouldnt ski it....but I would try sending it back....you never know! I have heard of crazier things being warrantied by ski manufacturers, that for sure.
A buddy of mine used to have a D3 that he pulled the metal inserts out of in a hard fall. (should have tightened his screws) Anyway he got it fixed. He skied it a few times and then scrapped it. He just didn't have confidence in it to really ski it properly.

If you ski hard and stress the ski to its limit is it worth the risk of injury? Our sport is expensive and if you ski hard or are advanced.... I see it as a no brainer to get a new ski... www.ski-it-again.com

be safe and have fun...

That's a great buy on a new sixam- too bad it's too small. Current ski is 67.5" and he thinks he should have a 68".

Send your ski back. My ski was 100% Not skiable and HO covered shipping and let me keep the broken ski because it had sentimental values (regional and national tournaments. And no I did not have the "Hook Up" at HO. When I called them I was treated like any other customer.

I don't know how my crack got in there. I did notice my ski started to feel spongy in the turns. I ran a -35 and struggled the whole pass. Took my binding off to this result. The rear binding plate was keeping the ski together. Anyway HO upgraded my monza to a 2012 brand new A2.



As far as the ski that the OP has......well we still know nothing about how it cracked.

That's what i was thinking. If it cracked in normal use they might meet you half way, whereas if you backed a trailer over it, you're probably on your own.

He doesn't know how it got there, but apparently he knew it was like that last summer when he was using it. The guy at Wiley's said he would keep skiing on it. He's sending a picture to O'Brien though, just to see. It's nothing like the crack in that red HO ski.
