    Ski gouge to top sheet

    I managed to wedge my ski under a log the other day and gouged the top sheet on the corner. Wondering if this is a big deal and should be repaired or is my ocd just getting to me and it is safe to just leave alone and just treat it as a battle wound.

    completely cosmetic. you should see my skis.

    if it really bothers you you can epoxy it but there’s no benefit to doing so

    Ok sounds like my ocd lol. Always a bummer to put that first scratch on something new.

    If the appearance bothers you, take a brown sharpie to it and color it in. No effect on the performance of the ski at all. The only potential ill effect is if the edges of that gouge are rough, you may catch a glove, or some bare skin of your hand on it, so you might want to take some finer grit sandpaper to any rough edges if they're present

    I have a "knick" like that that but at least 6 inches longer and I can even see a little wood...... its been like that for four years with no issue whatsoever.

    Congrats! you now have a set of "used" skis
